My classroom experience here has been nothing short of inspiring. I love the small class sizes and the one-on-one time with my professors, who are passionate about what they teach. In addition to being involved in a number of organizations, I also play in the jazz combo group through the music program. I’ve had a great experience at Salve, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
