Salisbury University is a school that stresses hard work and a well-rounded student. The large breadth of general education requirements allows students to get a feel for different majors and possible career paths. These requirements also help to ensure that students are knowledgeable about subjects outside of their chosen major, including composition, history, the sciences, humanities, and physical education; these courses may be completed by the middle of sophomore year. For an added challenge, the Honors Program offers courses such as "Contemporary China" and "The Legend of King Arthur" that strengthen critical thinking skills through in-depth discussion and readings.
Help is also always available on campus. Professors are always willing to work with students who need help or just need someone to come to for advice. They have a variety of available office hours, and appointments can be made for extra assistance. The personal relationships built with professors remain strong long after the end of classes, and instructors often become mentors for students during the undergraduate experience and beyond. The University Writing Center and the Center for Student Achievement also help students with college writing and tutoring, respectively. Specifically, the Center of Student Achievement keeps track of at-risk students and approaches them, informing them that there are services available for help. On the whole, SU makes every effort to ensure that their students succeed.
