    Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States Campus Website

    Winston-Salem State University's campus is located at the eastern gateway to Winston-Salem's growing downtown area. Winston-Salem, known as "The City of the Arts," is home to a wide variety of visual and performing arts, several museums and museum shops, live music venues, theaters and nightlife offerings for everyone. Two of the United States' largest corporations, Sara Lee and RJR Tobacco, maintain their headquarters in Winston-Salem. Along with a host of other important transnational corporations and financial institutions, they draw their human resources from all over the world and make Winston-Salem one of the ten most important financial centers in North America. The university is also located within walking distance of historic Old Salem, which recreates the life and architecture of the 18th-century Moravian town of Salem, North Carolina. The Blue Ridge Parkway and its scenic, beautiful mountains are less than two hours west of WSSU, and the state's unspoiled stretch of the Atlantic coast is three hours' leisurely drive east.

    Diggs Gallery of Art is the major cultural center of the university, offering more than 15 visual art exhibitions per year. The university is home to the Maya Angelou Institute.
