| If you are looking at the school drop it and begin to look elsewhere. The University itself is decent for academics however It's social life has as much going for it as a guy surrounded by great whites. The people here are like people anywhere else nice, mean and in-between. The lure of the university is it's aesthetics, surf and girls. No legit that's pretty much all it has. Don't believe me go to the website.|
SRU also has zero activity events worth going to once you get past the first week of freshman year. The food is bad but not as bad as it used to be so for that good job Salve, I'm sure it took allot out of you to actually improve something.
This is a good school if you can handle being bored. The school will have no fun for kids. Salve ignorantly believes that kids are content with creating fun for themselves while spending 43k a year. Do yourself a favor and go to a school with more funding and that is not cheap to spend money on it's students.
One of the only good things this school has going for it is smaller classrooms and very nice teachers. That being said treat your college searching experience like a business and pick something that will yield profitability for yourself.
Ultimately it is your choice whether you attend SRU. I strongly suggest you do not. Unless of course you seek girls, a pretty campus with crappy weather(rains every week almost) and nice teachers, and an old school religious affiliation that is unwilling to change it's old dead ways and unwilling to listen to the students trying to help them change for the better. To them you are a number and that number is money. Tat them the same way!

| I feel like most people who go to salve don't give it enough time to judge it. First semester I was set on transfering but I gave it the extra time and ended up loving it. It's such a beautiful school and all the falculty is there to help, the food sucks but finding good food anywhere is rare, downtown newport is amazing and once youre 21 there is almost no place like it. |

| Salve is small-- you have the opportunity to get to know your professors on a very personal level. With small class sizes, there is a wonderful opportunity for real and rich class discussion. It is a very comfortable campus, and breathtakingly beautiful. Social life for freshman might be more difficult-- there are rules here (i.e. 21+ drinking) but the same rules exist everywhere. There are some things that make Salve unique and wonderful: for example, the VIA Program is an elective, selective program for whole life design. This program is centered around a philosophically based curriculum, where the students and teach work together as a team to engage with "big ideas"-- everything from consumerism, sexism, racism, Nazism. There is one course called Destructive Interpretations of the Good Life where we employ Aristotelean style of dialogical learning. |
Overall, I love Salve. I am so glad that I chose to stuck it out. I will admit that freshman year I thought that Salve was too small, too clique-y, too snobbish. I got over that and realized that I was strong enough to avoid losing my soul to those Ugg/North Face wearing, Coach-bag toting girls... and now its all good! I have made amazing friends, learned so much about life and the world-- and most importantly I learned about myself. Some of the professors here WILL change your life. Please come and check it out. Please email me and let me know if you'd like me to answer any other questions!
