Greetings, Salem College parents and families!
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.)
• Fall Break: October 7-10
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!

The 2nd Annual Spirits Classic Golf Tournament will be held Friday, October 6 at the Pilot Knob Park Country Club located at 450 Clubhouse Road in Pilot Mountain, NC
Shotgun start begins at 1 pm. Lunch is at noon.
Salem’s Special Olympics story was chosen as one of three stories in the nation for the Special Olympics Spotlight Poll.
The story with the highest number of votes on October 25 will be given $500 to use for its next Special Olympics event. Currently, we are in second place. PLEASE CLICK HERE AND VOTE IN THE POLL ON THE ATTACHED PAGE!
A Salem College student will soon have a unique, hands-on research experience thanks to $680,000 National Science Foundation grant to Wake Forest University.
The NSF grant was awarded to Wake Forest University Associate Professor of Chemistry Patricia Dos Santos. In addition to funding research that helps scientists better understand life on earth, the grant also enables her to mentor students from other Triad-area colleges, including one from Salem.
We quickly found it was impossible to capture all the fun and excitement of Fall Fest and beyond in a single slideshow.
But we tried anyway.
We hope you enjoy this look back at Salem in September and we look forward to bringing you images from October next month!
