"We are twin brothers who transitioned from a community college in another state. Despite the challenges of relocating, Salem State has some great professors that have helped us, and the warm welcome that we have received has made us feel at home. SSU has opened our eyes to new experiences, friendships, and a very dynamic study environment. The atmosphere and the history of the city is incomparable to any other place, and we are enriched by SSU’s vibrant links to enterprise and cultural institutions. This allows our study of business to be more rewarding in many ways."
-Alvaro and Angelo Nunez Bachelor’s in Business Administration, from Mozambique
