4 College Junior

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

4 College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I wouldn't say that it's an extremely "unique" school. I think it's a perfect sized school with fantastic academics.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: It's a beautiful school with plenty of trees. The buildings are also beautiful and well-kept. The library is currently decent but needs to be bigger. They are in the process of building an "academic center" which will include a bigger nicer library as well to help remedy that problem. There are plenty of clubs on campus and cool stuff going on all the time.

Salisbury University certainly strives to provide adequate academic and recreational facilities for its students. Each of the University's academic buildings is kept neat, and the maintenance staff is quick to respond to any work orders that may arise. Furthermore, there are a dozen computer labs for student use. The Teacher Education and Technology Center contains recording studios, study rooms, and telecommunication studios. The only negative aspect to the academic facilities is the library. Blackwell Library is poorly stocked, and it is not unusual for students to request books from other University of Maryland libraries. However, in an effort to further improve these facilities, the University is beginning renovations to update space and technology.

In regards to athletic facilities, the Maggs Fitness Complex houses a large gymnasium that can seat 2,300 people and has the latest scoreboard and sound equipment. The complex also has a weight room, dance studio, three racquetball courts, a six-lane pool, auxiliary gym, and a fitness center. In addition to the gym, the University constructed a fitness center across the street from campus. There are also 12 outdoor tennis courts on Camden Avenue, with six meant for day and evening use, as well as three indoor courts. Finally, the athletic fields, located across Route 13, accommodate soccer, football, baseball, softball, track and field, lacrosse, football, and field hockey with Sea Gull stadium holding up to 2,500 people. All in all, there is more than enough space for recreation and learning.

"Green" Initiatives
As of late, environmental impact has come to the forefront of University policy. To make the campus "green," the first low-energy building, the Teacher Technology and Education Center, was built. Also, composting has been instituted and a wildlife garden was planted with plans to plant a vegetable garden in the near future. The dining hall has increased food waste awareness, asking students to take only what they can eat to reduce the amount of food wasted daily. Finally, various classes, from business to philosophy to environmental issues, continue to investigate alternate energy sources and other sustainability issues.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
Salisbury has a club or organization for any interest. From bowling to video games to community service, students participate in a variety of activities on and off campus. A great place to start is the student activities Web site:
http://www.salisbury.edu/saol/orgs/. The page lists every registered organization, usually with contact information included. If students wish to create a club, all that is needed is five people and a faculty advisor for the club to be officially registered.
