| living on campus is hell. in the one year i have lived there, there were two fire threats. one of the fires was set on our door. and black mold grew in 4 rooms that i know of, including my own. when i finally moved to a different building no one was helpful or accommodating. every one in residential life is rude, snooty and talks down to everyone including parents. the only friendly people you with encounter are the Atlantic Hall RD and assistant RD. but don't let that fool you. Atlantic is where the still unsolved fires occurred in Fall 2012 and the black mold was found both Fall 2012 and Spring 2013. If you have the option, avoid residential life all together and life off campus. It's cheaper to live in a well taken care of apartment or even commute two hours every day then it is to live there anyways. A big fat F- to Salem State University residential life. They should be embarrassed. |

| Place is terrible. Lived on campus for a semester, and there is nothing to do, i mean nothing. I decided to commute for the spring and the parking situation is ridiculous, stupid fee to park your car when your a commuter. The food is god awful, one of my friends got served a piece of raw chicken. The food is the same every day and makes you feel like crap.|
The classes are a joke. I transferred here for personal reasons and I was amazed by how much work I didn't have. If it wasn't for a shitty history professor i would have had close to a 4.0 gpa for the semester.
Central campus is newly constructed but North and South are like a high school, it's disgusting.
All in all I'm getting the hell out of here next semester, figured I would come here to save some money and get a degree but if I have to stay here another semester I may kill myself.

| Salem State University has a few good professors and a lot of deadwood. I cannot believe that some of the classes are called college classes. They are ridiculous! The Administration is the worst. I think everybody--students and faculty--hate the Administration. There is no social life on campus. If you pick your classes carefully, you can find good ones, but on the whole, classes are a joke. |
