Who knows where this is?
This is going to be a long post ... but if you read it (and you should), you'll see why we couldn't cut anything. Here's what Marina C'18 said about Salem. "My time at Salem College was truly invaluable. In fact, it is a little hard to write about it in the past tense since it has shaped a large part of my present journey. When I first started at Salem, I attended a class called Learners in Context where I was exposed to Paulo Freire and his 'Pedagogy of the oppressed.' That work was seminal in getting me to reflect on issues of equity in education which has remained a constant intellectual interest of mine. Moreover, Salem was what made me a teacher; it was at Salem that I learned how to lesson plan, how to pick books for my students that would reflect their interests and cultural backgrounds, and, more importantly, how to command a classroom. Without my teaching experience, I would not be where I am today. Lastly, and perhaps more importantly, my time at Salem, particularly the time spent crafting my thesis, is what made me see myself as a scholar and as someone with the ability to take the next step. I had always wanted to apply for a doctoral program but, until that moment, had always shied away from it thinking that perhaps I would not be capable enough. Salem helped me restore that faith in myself as a scholar and rekindled my passion for more intellectual pursuits. I will always be grateful for my time at Salem!"
Winston-Salem provides the best of both worlds. Our campus is located in an 18th Century Village only a short walk to a thriving downtown.
Summer Internships? We've got 'em. Meet Ashleigh. She's the summer communications intern at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Washington DC. She said she's "literally using everything she learned" in her Salem classes as well as a few things she picked up as the on-campus Communications and Public Relations work-study student.
