3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Havent started classes yet so i cant really speak from experience

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The students I encountered on my campus tour were very nice and they seemed very welcoming. Even though the surrounding neighborhood isn't the best, I still love my school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Salisbury University is a small university, but it retains some of the best professors I have encountered in my college experience. Having transferred from a community college, the transition was easy and I was welcomed by all that I encountered. Gullfest is one of the most enjoyable experiences and there are constantly events to attend to benefit oneself mentally and physically on our active campus. Since Salisbury is relatively close to the beach it is always beneficial to study or take a weekend away in Ocean City. The counselors and advisors at the university are some of the best and many students are completely fulfilled when they visit either for any form of assistance.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Salisbury University is a place where everything on-campus-related is packed all-in-one. The campus is small enough where you can get from class to class easily, but large enough where you are not running into the same students on a daily basis. The campus is also conveniently located in the heart of various restaurants, grocery stores, shopping experiences, and even our own zoo (which I might add, is completely free to the public.. which also serves as a great location for running/walking trails).

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Loved the staff I met at orientation!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall my first 2 years at Salisbury University have been great. My classes are fairly challenging and when I need it I am able to get the help that I need with the free tutoring that's available and some classes offer SI, a student instructor that schedules times to meet for further help. Salisbury also has a great Social Work program that interested me. I am satisfied with my choice for school

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really love my school. The teachers for the most part really enjoy what they do. I've only had one to two teachers who seemed as if they did not want to be teaching. The work can be challenging but in a good way. The campus offers a lot of activities to participate in, as well as academic programs

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus. I know they do have a variety of options to choose from though. I have heard from different people and different places different things. Some have small availability.. the nice ones anyways.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties range from boring- super fun. They are usually house parties which tend to get annoying quickly. I don't prefer to go usually. I am not sure about bar life, not old enough.

Off-Campus Dining: They have pretty much everything you could think of to eat! It's awesome because you get bored with the on campus options. Also, most places are open later hours because of the University.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food here has it's ups and downs. I feel like it is always the same options. Also, GULLS NEST is delicious however it lacks healthy food options, making that freshman 15 near impossible to avoid. Commons closes early on weekends leaving you to eat unhealthy gulls nest or take out or fast food. It gets expensive, plus the money you already spent on your meal plan.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My mother is a single parent and has been since I was 5 years of age. The Financial aid says that my mother makes too much to receive any aid however, she struggles to help pay for my schooling.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are very nice as though you are living in a hotel. But, I was placed in an upper class man dorm which was an older building. It was nice to have some extra privacy but, It was hard to meet new people and friends because it wasn't class dorm style. It was more like apartments.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Easy to get off the waitlist for the off campus housing

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Fairly easy to get financial aid through the university

3 College Junior

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Need more options that are relatable for students.

Off-Campus Dining: Need more options to be honest.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Lots to do on weekends for parties.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They know we are in college and we like to have fun, but there is still a strict set of rules.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I just wish I could receive more financial aid than I did.

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.
