Salem College celebration during reunion weekend

More than 15,000 Salem alumnae span the United States and the world. Though we can be found all over the globe, we share many common ties — the integrity of adhering to a cherished honor code, an excellent education from caring and talented faculty and memories of being a part of Opening Convocation, Fall Fest and Founders Day. Our shared Salem experience is a bond that unites us. Those who graduate with undergraduate or graduate degrees or are enrolled for at least two semesters are considered Salem College alumnae.

Alumnae will always have a home here, and we hope that you will pay us a visit from time to time, whether it be during Reunion Weekend, at an Alumnae Event or just for a nostalgic walk around our beautiful campus.
