Academics Rating

As for the educational aspect Salem College focuses primarily on women's studies and is the oldest continually running women's college in the United States. It's an incredibly unique experience and has an interesting history. It doesn't have “world renown” professors or educational specialties beyond it being uniquely focused primarily on women's studies but most of the majors the college offers are competently taught.

Academics Rating

Since I am not yet at the school, I cannot speak from first hand experience. Since they have a reasonably retention rate from freshman to sophomore years, I have to believe that the workload is reasonable.
