The Salemite is Salem College’s campus newspaper. It is run by a staff of student writers, photographers, and editors. It was converted to an online newsblog in 2010 and resumed its print publication in 2013. The Salemite covers major events on Salem’s campus and in the Winston-Salem community, in addition to topics of interest to the Salem student body – including entertainment, advice, and campus lifestyle.
The Salemite has represented freedom of the press for Salem College since 1920. It strives to be the “uncensored voice of Salem College” by providing students with a resource to express opinions and experiences in an open environment with no fear of repercussion.
