Salve's an average school. Academics are good but not nearly worth as much as you pay for them. You'll like Salve if you basically enjoy the idea of a practically all white, all catholic, all girl, all nursing, all rich, and private, expensive, and mediocre school. Newport is great yeah...if you have $100 spending money everyday to experience downtown. Doesn't seem like I'm open minded and unbiased, right? I read reviews about Salve being a small minded and overated school.I said to hell with it, college is what you make it. I learned the hard way. Good luck making college "your own" while surrounded by almost all condescending or confused girls 24/7, paying absurd amounts of money to live by a beach that is covered in snow half the time.... and knowing almost all of your student body by the 2nd semester. It's high school all over again, and thats what some people want, more power to you. Oh yeah the mascot is a seahawk and every male on a DIII team is convinced they're getting drafted to the NBA, MLB, or NFL. Choice is yours.
I don?t like much of anything about this school and that is why I am going to transfer by next year. Most the girls here are bitches who will be fake nice when they talk to you, but the minute you?re out of the room, they will talk shit about you. And most of the 2 guys you have in each class are either assholes or gay. This school is very cliquey, and so undiverese, it?s disgusting. Most people are the same here, no one dares to be different and if you are, they look down upon you. The only good thing about this school are the teachers, and in my case, the art teachers is awesome. Don?t get fooled by the pretty senery!
“As other people have said Freshman and SophomoreBrightCriminal
As other people have said Freshman and Sophomore year suck for partying, but once you move off campus it is awesome. During my 4 years at Salve I met a lot of great friendships that will last me a life time, and learned a lot from my professors. If you are looking for a small school where you get one on one attention from professors this is a great school to look at
