Salem Welcomes Record First-Year Class

Salem's largest first-year class in more than a decade was welcomed to campus in true Salem style on Saturday, August 20. New students and their families were greeted by student volunteers and residence life staff who took the work out of move-in by carrying new students' belongings into the dorms. The long-standing tradition eases the stress and burden on new students and their families, while introducing first-years to the Salem spirit of collaboration and community. The move-in was covered by several news outlets, including the Winston-Salem Journaland WXII News 12.
