College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not part nor will I ever be a part of the Greek life at my school.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: This school is mostly concerned with academics instead of sports. We do not have the best football team, but some of the teams are really good even though the school does not revolve around sports.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most places are in walking distance, but are mostly fast-food restaurants. If you want something else, you will have to drive.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school administration is very serious about drug and alcohol, but the major concern seems to be the parking and noise violations.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not participate in the party scene at my school on a regular basis and do not have enough experience to give it a rating.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It took forever to straighten out my financial aid. After I finally did sort it out, I did not receive as much as I had expected and was not told why I did not get that extra money.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: While there is an adequate amount of food choices, the commons does not always provide the best quality of the food.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced off campus housing yet but I do know there are a lot of options and they do offer a lot of assistance.

Scholarships: I personally didn't receive any scholarships from the school, but they do automatically review you for them and it's pretty easy to arrange financial aid through the school. I never had a problem.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's definitely easy to find parties as a freshman, most are within walking distance of campus. You sorta need to know somebody to get in and get the addresses though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I find I got really bored of Commons really quickly. The satellite dining locations and Gull's Nest are pretty nice where you can use the dining dollars that come with your meal plan but again, it all gets old eventually. You'll find yourself walking to Chipotle regularly.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are pretty nice, most of them have been newly renovated and they're all very close to anywhere you need to go.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The University sets up fairs where students can visit and meet landlords, rental companies, etc to visit the possibility of living off-campus. Off-campus living is sometimes pricey but worth it because of the freedom you have and it helps make you more of an adult.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Salisbury has an abundant of choices for late night cravings, early birds and everyone in-between.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The resident officers make sure that all dorm rules are followed to ensure student safety.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly, my application was picked for review and in the end, without much assistance, I was denied the pell grant I had received from the Federal Government. After being denied, I owed the school almost $500, I am a full time student as well as a full time employee and it was quite difficult and honestly disappointing.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I personally do not party because I am from this area and have no want or need to for these activities.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options to enjoy good food on campus. The university has made efforts to include places that are not only just the Commons. Salisbury has Cool Beans cafe which serves Starbucks coffee, as well as a Starbucks on the north side of campus, the Gulls Nest is exceptional and one of the favorites for students and staff. On top of these choices, each building has a food cart or food court available with assortments of foods, healthy or satisfying.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of Salisbury is not overwhelming, the education that you acquire is amazing. The university is constantly expanding in ways that benefit the students, facility and staff and still manages to maintain its beautiful and easy atmosphere. As a commuter, sometimes it is difficult to get the attention that the on-campus students receive, for example parking is sometimes disastrous because there is never enough for the student residency and commuters. All in all, the university does make an effort to include all students, faculty and staff in productions, opinions, expansions etc because they do understand that it will affect not just the university but them and the surrounding areas.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I rarely eat off campus except Cook Out which is cheap and great and open til 4am

3 College Freshman

Administration: The parking officers are assholes and absolutely ridiculous. The price of tickets is more than parking on the sidewalk

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't apply for financial aid

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I could and will eat it every day for 4 years

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are wonderful and make freshman year a wonderful experience! You meet new people daily and have an abundance of friends. I absolutely love living here! My dorm has become home and I have made a family here.

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.
