Being an all women's college, safety is often a concern for incoming first years, but I can honestly say that during my three years here so far, I've never once felt unsafe. Public Safety is always around, and more importantly always accessible. They are located in the center of campus, so they're never more than a few minutes away. One of the most important characteristics of our public safety staff is that they're always approachable. I've NEVER felt ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help, and they're always willing to help us whenever we ask. In addition to public safety, Salem is really huge on the family aspect, or "sisterhood". Through my time here, I've realized that the sisterhood everybody talks about is real! Your Salem sisters will always have your back, which truly adds to the level of safety experienced at our school.
