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 Back Porch Social, a Faculty Reception, a Family Stroll & Sprint, the International Dinner, and a traditional Moravian Lovefeast. Information on Family Weekend will be available on Move-In Day in August 2017.

If you have any questions as you arrive this weekend, you may reach us by phone at 336-721-2627. Safe travels!!
