Salve can be a great time depending on

Mar 18 2007Business - Management and Administration
Salve can be a great time depending on what you make of it. Newport is a fun town to be in and absolutly beautiful. The kids here tend to be wealthier and can be extremely stuck up. The sports teams here dont really get a lot of support and they arent very good. The classes are not nearly as hard as I thought they would be. Attendence here is really important and teachers definetly know when your not there. The campus is very beautiful and safe. The food can be okay, the best is the saturday and sunday morning brunches. Overall, salve is a good school, I'm still in the process of deciding if its for me.

The school promotes its scenery and environment

Dec 12 2006Economics
The school promotes its scenery and environment. The academics are not worth the price of tuition. Many students here, the mmajority of them are not career oriented or focused. The majority of students recieve financial aid so the "rich" stereotype is false. The school si extremly catholic. They fail to mention all the courses and assignments you have to do that the majority of your school work comes from are in the religion classes. The food on campus is horrible. There are however excellent professors and academic advisors. The only thing Salve has to offer is the "Mansion living" idea. However its what the stduents does inside the dorms that counts, not what the school looks like. If you are not going to school for teaching or nursing, this isn't a great place to be. The students also tend to be close minded and racist. International Students are the outcasts. God is a notion on everyones mind.

Salve has a gorgeous campus and it is

Jan 27 2007Business - Management and Administration
Salve has a gorgeous campus and it is very safe day and night. It gets cold and windy in the winter and it doesn't snow that much. Most if not all of the professors I have met are very helpful and know what they are teaching. It is very easy to get the trolly into Newport and go to CVS, Stop & Shop, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Express, and other stores. Salve has your typical sports teams; football, baseball, basketball, field hockey, etc., but it is not a sports school at all. I am a huge sports fan and it kills me that Salve isn't into sports. If you're looking for a competitive sports school with student enthusiasm, Salve is not your kind of school. As for food, breakfast is really good; pancakes, french toast, eggs, bacon, waffles, cereal. The lunch and dinner is about a B-, some students don't like it some go there everyday. At first I didn't like it but I don't know if they're putting out better food or what but I go to the cafeteria everyday now. The job placement after Salve is wonderful. Salve helps you get an internship your senior year, and a very high percent of students get a job or already have a job lined up right after graduating. There is not a lot to do on campus and there are not a lot of parties off campus. However when there are parties, they are your typical "everyone get wasted", keg-stand parties. There are a lot of weed smokers, so if you are you'll make friends quickly. Salve is kind of like a high school in a sense because there are only about 1,800 undergrads, a large percentage of the students are very clicky, and you have to be on a sports team or be friends with someone on a sports team to really know a lot of people. But Salve is very safe, has a wonderful surrounding city, the professors are great, but it's not an enthusiastic sports school. I might transfer only if I find a school that's more into sports, has the same type of professors and has the same kind of job placement after graduating.
