Andrew Ames '10, Graphic art and design with a minor in communications

"From what I heard, Salem State had a fantastic art program so I decided to visit and see for myself. When I arrived, I found that everything I heard was true.

I am currently a junior majoring in graphic art and design with a minor in communications. The professors are outstanding and have inspired and pushed my artistic skills far beyond from where I was entering Salem State.

While here I've also become a part of the cross country team and the indoor and outdoor track teams. The teams are incredible, the coaches really push you and everyone has a great time on and off the track. We are like a giant family.

Above all, though, my most memorable experience is simply meeting new people here at Salem State, each and every one positively affecting my college experience."
