2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As an incoming Freshman, you are automatically applied for scholarships at the school which is fantastic. The problem is, if that scholarship no longer applies to you for any reason, you cannot reapply for other scholarships. I applied to the school as an Early Childhood Education major because, honestly, I had no idea what I was doing. As soon as I was accepted, I switched to an Undecided major, but they already matched me with a scholarship specifically for Education majors. They gave it to me for my freshman year, but now I am a psychology major and they have to take away the scholarship. I am an excellent student with a 4.0 gpa but there's no way to reapply for scholarships. I intend to call the financial aid office to see if there's anything they can do for me but I'm not expecting fantastic results.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school. It's the perfect size, the professors are great, the people are great, and it's gorgeous here. The only downside being housing is difficult for non-freshman and quite expensive.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived in the off-campus housing yet as I am only entering my Sophomore year. Many students choose to live off campus and the university highly encourages it, offering plenty of help for finding off-campus housing. I do know that more often than not the off-campus non-affiliated housing is much cheaper than the university-affiliated housing.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is very limited. They are involved in the campus community, but they aren't really noticed.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: For the first two years, students are required to live on campus, after that, it is your personal choice. There are many houses and apartment complexes around the campus so its easy to find a place off campus if you want to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although the school is on the small side, it is still large enough were you can get lost in a crowd of people. Sometimes you can see a ton of people you know when walking to class and other times, you just see stangers. Close kit community.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you have a car and can drive, there is a lot of places you can go that are within a half an hour. Ocean city is very popular spot for students to go to the beach.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: In school has built an entire building dedicated to education majors. They focus on getting students into classrooms early and working to accomplish there goals.

Majors: I have been placed in an education intern. Although the process my be a little difficult, the experience in the school is great insight.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It rarely snows in the winter, and the fall and spring are so baeutiful.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I really enjoy all of the options to eat on campus. My favorite are the special nights they have in Bistro for certain holidays, and Gullsnest.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation isn't an big issue because most things are in walking distance, but if you don't have a car, friends who do have cars are always willing to give rides.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It is really fun when you go out with people you have common interests with, like to formals for clubs or teammates' houses to hang out.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Salisbury is a great school to attend because the professors are welcoming, the food is delicious, the people are friendly, the weather is pretty nice, and bordem is rare.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is always a club, group, or organization on campus that is hosting an event, whether it be chalking up the school, a show, or a game night, there is never a dull moment on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Eveerything is really welll maintained. The buildings are clean. There are beautiful plants and statues all around campus as well.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being an athlete on a club team, I can say that some of the fields and the track need to be updated, but the gyms are great.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Those who choose to drink, do not drink on campus, and a very large majority take part responsibly.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not recieve the financial aid that I applied for.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have any comments to make because I am not a member of the Greek life on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: There are always computers to access and the amount of pages we are allowed to use to print per week is very generous.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I don't bring a car to school, so I don't really have any comments to make, but the parking situations seem to be efficient.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It keeps everyone safe and on the right track.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are reallt up to date and are close to everything else on campus, such as classrooms, the dining hall, and the book store.

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.
