When you’re an adult (23+) student, you often begin college while juggling other responsibilities such as your family and/or your career. Sometimes you wonder if the activities and events on campus are meant for everyone BUT you.
However, at Salem ALL students are welcome to participate in life outside the classroom! Whether your free time is calculated in minutes or hours, we will help you find ways to become involved.
Fleer Center students are active participants in such campus organizations as the Off-Campus Student Association, The Salemite (campus newspaper), Sights and Insights (yearbook) and Incunabula (literary magazine).
In addition, there are organizations created for and led by Fleer students. The Fleer Center Orientation Committee, Salem Connections and the Leadership Council give Fleer students a voice on campus and facilitate lifelong connections to Salem. Perhaps you want to lead an organization, or maybe you have an hour per month to volunteer within one—you are in control of your commitments!
Salem also hosts dozens of campus-wide events for the entire community. The Cultural Events committee brings guest speakers, musicians, theater performances and panel discussions to campus throughout the year and at various times during the day so you can always find time for a few! Recent events have included visits by Gloria Steinem, author Geraldine Brooks, the Piedmont Chamber Singers, a panel on the presidential campaign and numerous film screenings.
Finally, there are events throughout the year that are fun for the whole family. Events such as Family Weekend, Founders Day and the Back Porch Party are for people ages 1 month to 100 years so you can share your Salem experience with everyone you love.
