TESTIMONIAL:

Linh Nguyen, Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

 I chose Salem State because of the opportunity to advance my career in teaching at an international school in Vietnam.  I was drawn to the courses and professors but I also made her decision based on the financial help that SSU gave me as a graduate assistant.  With the graduate assistantship, Linh has a job on campus which helps her to gain experiences, and she also receives tuition support.  In addition, I have also been exposed to several innovative theories and practices of various teaching and assessment styles that will be useful for my future. I have had the opportunity to learn about the American culture and lifestyle, including speaking styles and language skills which will be very beneficial for my teaching when I return to Vietnam.

The Center for International Education has been the most helpful for me, and the staff members are very supportive, welcoming, and friendly. The professors who I work with have also helped me build my confidence which was something I lacked when I was in Vietnam. I have had the opportunity to make new friends on campus who are from different countries like China, Brazil, Colombia, Kenya and more. Salem State has many student organizations on campus as well as events in theater, arts, athletics that are fun to attend.  It is easy to travel around campus and access dining and recreational options because of the free transportation available to all students. I recommend the Salem State School of Graduate Studies to all international students who want to advance their careers and earn a master’s degree or graduate certificate!

Trang Vu, BS in Accounting, 2020 Graduate

 Salem State University has been my home for the past four years.  I have been an accounting major and I feel very prepared to enter the workforce and continue with the experience that I am gaining on my OPT.  I have been able to get a job with an accounting firm preparing tax documents and helping run business reports.  Thanks to the excellent advice that I got on writing my resume and preparing for job interviews, I feel ready to begin my professional career.  My classes at SSU were also excellent.  I improved my English quickly in the American Language and Culture Institute at SSU, and I entered my degree program after a year.  I am proud to say that I am graduating with at 3.9 GPA.  

My professors are all really excellent and go out of the way to help students along the way.  I have made many friends from all over the world and I also was able to work on campus for two years.  This helped me support my expenses and also gave me confidence and valuable work experience.  I already miss Salem State, my professors, and my friends.  But I know that I will always be a lifelong Viking!   I can’t recommend a Salem State education enough as a place where you will learn and grow as a person and get the education and experience that you need for your future success.  Salem is also a very beautiful and historic city with lot of restaurants, cafes, beaches, and parks.   You will really enjoy exploring Salem and Boston in your free time!

Đình Chương Trinh, BS Nursing, 2022.  

I transferred to Salem State from a community college in another state, and it was the best decision that I made.   The nursing program at SSU has trained most of the nurses in our region, and, now after the corona virus outbreak, I feel even more secure that I can make a difference in any future health related challenges in my community.  The professors here are so caring, and the small class sizes in labs and clinical experiences really have made my experience very rewarding.  We have projects with classmates and opportunities for a lot of hands on practice.  

I have made so many friends at Salem State and I have been able to practice my music in a lot of different settings, too.  The Center for International Education really helps us and takes care of us.  I can always stop in and visit and get advice on my schoolwork, visa, or any other situation that I may encounter.  Salem is an awesome small city, too, and there are lots of beautiful views of the ocean, and Boston is only 30 minutes away.  I am so happy that I became a SSU Viking!
