Vikings EXcel

Our student-athletes need support as they navigate the changing landscape of college athletics. We have spent much time over the last year looking at what it means to be a Viking, what our values are, and how we can help return Salem State Athletics to its history of being one of the most successful programs in New England. All our teams and our coaches are currently setting goals for within the framework of our initiative, Vikings EXcel: Excellence in Competition, Education, and Leadership.

As an athletic department and community, our next step is to provide the support required for the pursuit of excellence in these areas that truly define the DIII experience. The Athletics Department will be hosting the first-ever “Vikings EXcel – Paving the Road to Success” campaign as our teams and student-athletes return to campus. Funds raised during this period will impact, among others, the following areas:

  • Updated travel and practice gear
  • Increased live streaming of contests and web-based events
  • Strength and conditioning needs
  • Locker room and equipment upgrades
  • Student-athlete leadership and mental health programming

Additionally, you will help enhance the overall experience of our student-athletes and the important role that being a Viking will make in their life. We hope that you will seize the opportunity with your gift to make a difference where it will have an immediate—and lasting—impact. Together, we can all help our Vikings, once again, EXcel.
