Student Success Series

The student success series was designed to help students transition to Salem State University—socially as well as academically. Each workshop or activity is specially designed to support students in the areas that are most important to success at the collegiate level. Workshops are presented by a variety of faculty, staff and administrators at the university—all of whom have a passion for working with and supporting first year students. Looking to learn a new skill? Want to enhance your existing skills? The student success series is the perfect opportunity to take control of your academic success.
