A local university is celebrating 125 years of education.
Salem International University was founded in 1888.
Salem International President John Luotto said a lot has changed at the university and a lot has stayed the same.
"It's educated people in this community. It continues to educate people in this community. It continues to put people back to work in this community. I think it's a wonderful opportunity for people to come out and experience us for the first time all over again," Luotto said.
Salem International is planning several events to celebrate its 125 years of service.
