RSVP for Family Weekend

One of the highlights of the fall semester is Family Weekend! This is the perfect time for you to show your family (your parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, etc.) “your” Salem! Introduce them to your favorite professor, show them your favorite place to study, or simply show off how you’ve kept your residence hall room clean! Special activities of Family Weekend include a Social, a Faculty Meet & Greet, the International Dinner, and a traditional Moravian Lovefeast.
