It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the semester, and Fall Break is just days away! As the leaves begin to change in Old Salem, we are excited to launch our new Parent & Family Newsletter to begin sharing with you highlights about events and programs at Salem as the seasons continue to change.
Looking at the weeks ahead, our students are busily preparing for midterm exams and writing their first papers, so it’s a great time for you to send them a note of encouragement - or better yet - a surprise delivery pizza for a late night study session with friends!
Here are a few important reminders about dates and deadlines that are fast approaching. Feel free to remind your students, and mark your calendars, too!
• Jan Term Registration Begins: October 2 (All students register for one course. Business Office holds must be cleared to register.)
Congratulations on all of your hard work so far this semester! (Yes, we know that family encouragement and support greatly contributes to student success!) We hope that you enjoy hearing more about what’s going on at Salem this fall and that we might see you on campus for Family Weekend in a few weeks!

FALL FEST: Evening Skit Videos Now On Demand
For the first time ever, Salem recorded the fantastic Fall Fest skits and the video is here for all to enjoy!
The videos were filmed, edited and produced by Salem alumna Jasmine Huff who will be teaching a video class in the spring.
For an institution that’s been around for 246 years, it’s kind of hard to find something new that’s never been done before, but Lacrosse Coach Merridith Cho has done just that by selecting the first-ever Salem College Lacrosse team.
The Lacrosse season will officially get underway in the spring, but until then, you may see Cho and her players practicing hard at Blixt Field.
