Stay Tuned for Viking Warrior Day 2024!

Thank you for helping us meet the moment on our most historic Viking Warrior Day yet. Viking Warrior Day 2023 is in the books!

This landmark initiative is the largest fundraising campaign in the university’s history and in the state university system, seeking to advance our mission on multiple fronts: financial assistance, student success initiatives, unrestricted support, and SSU BOLD: A Campus Unification and Modernization Project.   

And thanks to your support on Viking Warrior Day, we raised $287,876 from 475 donors as of 11:59 pm Tuesday, May 9. And still counting!  

Go Vikings!


Through our sixth annual day of giving, we were able to champion Meet the Moment™, our transformational $75 million comprehensive campaign, as we work together to ensure a Salem State education remains broadly accessible to everyone in our communities.

VWD23 may be over but you can still be a Viking Warrior and your support for Salem State’s current priorities, scholarship, or student support by making a gift now!
