I love everything about SU. The professors are very personal, almost all my professors know the entire class by name. They're very organized, and helpful. The campus is a perfect size, you can walk from one side to the other in less than 20 minutes. The students are all very friendly and its easy to get to know them.

Attending Salisbury University was the best decision I made! It is the perfect size for me because it's not overwhelmingly big but it's not small either. I like being able to walk around campus and see people I know but at the same time, it's big enough so that I don't feel like I know everyone at my school. Salisbury is definitely on the rise. They have been adding a lot of new things to the University such as the AMAZING library and the brand new stadium for sports! There's a lot to do here and I love the school to death.
