We just got back from doing a round of college tours. The staff at this university were very friendly and knowledgeable. With this tour we saw the whole campus including a dorm room. Definitely a small school with about 2,000 undergrad students. Beautiful campus.

This campus, is covered in old growth Trees, and lush lawns. Centered right in the heart of downtown...makes its convenient for students everything within walking distances. Beautiful to stroll and admire the old buildings as well.

I had the pleasure of being toured around the university and it was magical. There was wildlife roaming around, nutria(?), big gopher looking creatures, birds, etc. Truly a gem of place in Salem.

Traditional college with an Ivy League flavor. Fun to walk the campus. Especially when school is in. Have coffee, perhaps lunch. Watch the students. Wander the bookstore and grimace about the cost of books. Old college grads perspective.
