Salem State University Graduate Reviews

8 reviews
The faculty here are initially helpful to students and appear to want the best for the student. However, they will play favorites and treat some students better than others. When you get into the upper-level courses of the program the faculty are no longer helpful. They are hesitant in answering emails or questions students may have and they are not required to post grades in the upper-level classes. I had a very poor experience in one of my courses where the Professor posted feedback and grades late on paper, leaving students hanging. I did end up failing the course and being dismissed from the program because of poor feedback on assignments and not receiving help when I requested it. If they attempt to put you on a behavior plan please do not return to the program as they use this as a way to dismiss students. Choose another OT program that allows you to perform to your best capacity, this program is unfortunately not designed this way.

The school is very easy to get too, parking is usually easy to find, I loved it here. I learned so much and my professors were willing to help out whenever needed. I am going back soon for another degree and I cannot wait to attend the college! Great events, great gym, great people and teachers, and wonderful learning environment!
Salem State University has been a great experience as a graduate student. Despite some traffic in the city, Salem is a great location to attend college with many resources around. The professors are friendly and helpful. The library is has a great environment. I also got the chance to travel to Rwanda in Africa that Salem State provided me with.
