You want to experience and shape the world around you. At Salem College, we applaud this ambition and challenge you to do more than succeed: we want you to shine.

As the oldest continuously operating educational institution for women in the United States, we combine the best of the old and the new. You can stroll along the historic streets of Old Salem—a restored Moravian village—then head a few blocks up to the vibrant downtown store fronts, galleries, and restaurants of Winston-Salem, aptly named the City of Arts and Innovation.

We invite you to join us at a college where women from all over the world are encouraged to shine in every aspect of their lives. From the first moment you step on campus to the day you graduate, we give you the freedom to explore your skills and talents; to be actively involved with the community; to make lifelong friendships with fellow students; and to learn from outstanding faculty members. We’re confident you will experience a vision of education at Salem that will shape your present and impact your future.
