Salem Through My Eyes

I love the community and support that can be found at Salem, and the small campus and small class sizes allow students to truly get to know their classmates and their professors.

Fun Facts

  • I am a huge college football fan, and marched clarinet and tenor saxophone in high school and at the University of Alabama, Roll Tide!
  • I was drum major in high school for two years. Although Salem doesn’t have a football team, I strongly support Salem students who are in the Wake Forest Marching band and color guard. Go SOTOGAB!
