New Bus Routes To Connect Students With Shopping
Salem College Leaders are in finalizing talks with Winston-Salem city officials to establish a Southeast Gateway Higher Education bus route that would connect Salem students with grocery stores, restaurants, Thruway Shopping Center and other establishments on Stratford Road, as well as Hanes Mall.
This proposed new Route 100, which is expected to start this month, will run Monday through Saturday until midnight with some operation on Sunday as well.
Students from WSSU, Salem College, UNCSA and Forsyth Tech will have the access they may need to go shopping, meet friends for meals off campus, volunteer in the community, take on internships/co-ops and/or get a part-time job should they choose to do so.
Details will be announced when they are final.

When she came to Salem, Merritt Enright knew she wanted to explore the world of broadcast journalism.
Despite the fact that Salem doesn’t actually offer a journalism major, college officials worked with her to create a program that has led to what is now her third internship with NBC News in New York City.
Salem’s new Athletics Director Trish Hughes has only been on campus a few short, months but since that time she has literally hit the ground running.
Here are just a few of the many things she’s working on to improve the athletic experience at Salem.
HALL OF FAME IS COMING: Salem is currently in the initial phases of planning and researching the creation of The Salem Academy and College Athletics Hall of Fame, which will transform the “hall” between the gym and the athletics offices. Details will be forthcoming, and solicitation for nominees will begin in the coming months as we map out our plan for this important new chapter to honor our strong history and tradition of athletics and women leaders.
IT’S TIME FOR LACROSSE: This month marks the historic moment that a nearly 250-year old institution witnesses something that has never happened. An official NCAA Lacrosse game on our campus. The first home game will be against Methodist on February 20. And look for details next month about our Lacrosse kick-off celebration.
FITNESS CENTER FACELIFT: The Student Government Association is funding a complete renovation of the Fitness Center in Bryant Hall which will include the purchase of brand new fitness equipment, as well as a new look for the space.
