A Message From
President Thrift Ras'"°"4 S?x__cat^ Cooni
As we get our second semester well under way, I am struck by the many
things all of us at Salem have to be proud of this year. Most of all, I am proud
of our students!
Salem received some national publicity February 5 when Steffan Ham-
bright, one of our seniors, was named to the 1993 All-USA Third Academic
Team by US.Today. Steffan placed 41st out of 1,300 nominees for the three
academic “teams.” She was one of 60 college students nationwide who were
honored. Congratulations, Steffan!
As our seniors move into their final months at Salem, it is time to reflect on
their four years here. By the end of this semester, I hope to have had each senior
to my home for dinner. It is always interesting to hear their stories of life at
Salem and to gain wisdom from their perspective. After all, they were here long
before I arrived less than two years ago! I am always struck by how much fun
our students have: The“Crush”party February 11 and this year’s Fall Fest, one
of die most successful we’ve had in quite a while, are only two examples.
As the seniors prepare for life after Salem, talented jumors are waiting in the
wings to fill the many important campus offices that will be vacated. I am
always impressed by the quality of juniors, sophomores and freshmen who
come forward in the spring to file as candidates for campus offices. I often
wonder which job is most demanding, theirs or mine!
TTie freshman class, although they have been here only a few months, have
added so much to our campus. They are our largest class, and I never cease to
be amazed at their enormous talent, and how quick they are to express their
wishes! I have often noticed that although many Salem women are southerners,
they lack nothing in assertiveness, contrary to the stereotypes some might have!
These freshmen are certainly no exception.
We appreciate the hard work that all of you have put in to help us fill the ranks
of the 1993-94 freshman class and to raise money for the Annual Fund. Many
thanks to all of you who hosted and reached out to students during Scholarship
Weekend and other visitation times. And thanks to those who made telephone
calls during the annual Phon-A-Thon to raise money for Salem!
As of February 12, our applications for the freshman class numbered 292 -
up more than 16 percent from the applications we had this time last year. And,
we are headed for our most successful year of fundraising in the history of the
college! Much of the credit belongs to you!
In short, it is a joy to be working on a college campus again after my years
in Washington. The enthusiasm and excitement you generate make being your
president too much fun to be a “real” job!
