About Salem College

Salem College can trace its roots as far back as 1766 when the Moravians, an early Protestant denomination from central Europe, established the village of Salem. Believing that women deserved an education comparable to that given men, the Moravians began a school for girls in 1772. Today, Salem is an intimate learning community of 1,100 women from all over the world and is one of our nation's most distinguished private liberal arts colleges.  As the oldest educational institution for women in the United States, Salem boasts a proud history of fostering independence in women. Students enjoy state-of-the-art facilities for the sciences, athletics and the performing arts; manage their campus through a dynamic Student Government Association; and participate in over 50 clubs and activities.
