3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many fast food chains around the campus, and not enough healthier options.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The students at Salisbury are decent. I have yet to have a problem with a person on campus. People are pretty accepting of everyone.

Facilities: I love that the campus is a green campus with recycling bins and eco friendly opportunities everywhere

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Avoid any off campus housing on MD state names streets. Not a good neighborhood. Any housing off of Camden street is usually good and its close to the school.

3 College Junior

Athletics: A lot of School Spirit

College Junior

Campus Housing: I transferred to Salisbury and never lived on campus. But there are tons of off campus housing opportunities around the University

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Filling it out online is easiest

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Sea Gull Square is a great place to live, it's probably the nicest place on campus. It has four floors of rooms. In each room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1 living and a kitchen with a small eating space, there is also stackable washing and dryer. They mostly have 1 year leases which are about $8,000 (you can definitely find cheaper places off campus with more space but you can't beat the amenities and the convenience of this residence). The building also includes a gym.

Health & Safety: Police escort to off-campus or on campus housing available up to 3 am in the morning.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall my experience at Salisbury is one of the best memories I will have. The people I have met and continue to meet everyday help to make my days at the university even better. There is always something going on to involve students and keep the good vibes flowing. The advising could use a small amount of work, but the atmosphere and the types of people that attend the university are always down to have a good time.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Some students are not necessarily fans of the food served in the dining hall on campus, however the university does supply many other options for food. There are flex dollars, and meal plans that include these dollars, that can be used at a wide variety of places off campus. You are also given the option to add more money to the amount of flex dollars available on your student ID card, and can also use these dollars at the local coffee shop. I choose to use my money outside of the dining hall due to the poor quality of the food. It may look and taste extremely good...but you will regret eating it later.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Even though the areas surrounding the university are not the prettiest, campus security does a great job of maintaining a safe place for the students to gather. I have not heard of many, if any, situations occurring on campus. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same applies once off campus. As soon as a foot is stepped off of campus grounds, you are in trouble. The outside security of the town is not the strongest and there have been many incidents involving students traveling near and around campus. I personally feel pretty comfortable on campus however I would not walk alone, anywhere, if given the choice.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere that surround Salisbury University involves a lot of crime and violence. The class of people living in the area is significantly lower than many other areas I have seen and the locals are not the fondest of the college students. Although there are some pretty cool places to go such as Riverside, Brew, or the Salisbury Zoo there is not much to do once leaving campus. One very big positive however is the food. There are tons of places to eat within walking distance of the university!

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I honestly would not know since I live on campus. I heard it's great though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Salisbury, I can't wait to come back in the fall. It's a small school but it is great because everything is close together and right in walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Things could be better, but things are great.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The gyms are lovely. The activities are amazing too.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The high rises are great, Chester & Choptank are newly renovated and they are just wonderful. I know many upperclassmen that love those dorms. Seagull square is nice too, thin walls but it's still lovely.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have guys that walk people that feel safe back to dorms. We also have police station with help lights that are around campus.

Salisbury University's homepage proclaims the school as "A Maryland University of National Distinction," and rightly so. For the past dozen years, SU has been ranked as one of the top universities not only in the state of Maryland, but also in the country. Students at Salisbury are attracted to the relatively small class sizes that afford them personal attention from professors, as well as the availability of other academic resources, such as computers. In addition, SU has a great financial aid and scholarship program, which, coupled with the modest fees, makes college more affordable to a larger number of students. Together, the available academic resources and financial aid options make Salisbury a very attractive institution, especially for those planning on careers in education or business, two of SU's strongest programs.

In addition to the academic advantages, the biggest draw of Salisbury is the social atmosphere. Every day is a chance to meet someone new. It is not uncommon for students to simply sit down at an occupied table in the Commons and introduce themselves. Furthermore, the many parties that take place on the weekends also give students the chance to meet a large number of fellow students. Also, SU holds a large number of social events throughout the year (like comedians, movies, dances, and speeches) that brings the campus community together. Finally, the large number of clubs and organizations allows students to get involved in the local community and enjoy experiences with others who share their passions. All in all, Salisbury University is an institution that pushes students to do their best in the classroom, but with a relaxed atmosphere that makes the college experience wholly enjoyable.
