Salem is located in Columbiana County, approximately twenty miles southwest of Youngstown, Ohio, on Route 62. The campus, located two miles south of the manufacturing town of Salem, is composed of over forty acres and is centrally located among the metropolitan areas of Youngstown, Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. Living within driving distance of these cities enables students to take advantage of the cultural attractions of large cities. Major airlines have service as close as the Pittsburgh, Akron-Canton, Cleveland, and Youngstown airports.
The diversified industries of the Salem area make it a fast-growing community and offer the working student suitable employment. This secluded area, just a short distance from the bustle of secular business, gives one a feeling of security in a wholesome atmosphere. Learn more about our location here.
