Frequently Asked Questions

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Come as you are, whatever age that may be. The only ID requirements we have insist that all Salem College Students bring their student ID for ticket purposes. You will miss out on the soul food without proof of student identification, so come prepared!

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The event is located at East Campus Entrance at 500 E. Salem Avenue. There is a large parking lot located conveniently in front of the Fine Arts Center. In the rare event, this lot becomes full, you will be directed to additional parking locations upon your arrival.
