“I’ve become more of a student and more of a professional than I expected to be. I’ve done more here than I ever imagined.”
—Amy ’14, communications
After being away from school for 18 years, Amy decided to complete her degree
at Salem State. Her professors have helped her reignite her passion for writing as they push her to think outside her comfort zone to achieve greater success. Amy’s involvement in campus organizations — and her immersion in the community projects they sponsor — has exposed her to challenges and opportunities she never dreamed she would discover when she returned to college.
Amy shares how she found her passion at Salem State.
“The faculty at Salem State take a keen interest in who you want to be and where you want to go with your career.”
Ruth ’15, MSN
Ruth attended high school near one of Africa’s largest slums in Nairobi, Kenya. The experience exposed her to people with limited resources for healthcare, and inspired her to help people through a career in nursing. Ruth chose Salem State for her graduate nursing studies because of our excellent faculty and additional learning opportunities, like graduate research assistantships. In her clinical rotation at Lahey Clinic, she has discovered that she has indeed chosen a career she truly cares about.

—Julie ’89, sport, fitness and leisure studies
founder and former CEO of Internoded, Inc.
Julie came to Salem State with an idea of what she wanted to do in life. But her experience here helped her discover an entirely new passion, and she went on to found a very successful technology company. Years after graduation, she still talks about how her professors took her under their wing and helped her get the most out of her time here. Today, when Julie returns to campus for a speaking engagement, she finds the faculty continue to share that same passion and concern for their students.
