4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at Salisbury University so far as been one to remember

1 person found this useful Report
1 College Junior

Campus Housing: For university park it was my only option. it was too expensive and i was bullied out of my own appertment to the point where i moved out.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority and I am treated just the same if i was in one. Theyre basically just another club. Again, it were a bigger school it'd be a bigger deal.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We're a division 3 school, so sports arent that big a deal. I wish they were though.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wish it was a bigger campus with more students enrolled (engineering programs bring in more students)

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Salisbury has honestly changed my life for the better and has taught me so much. The courses are challenging but easy enough to get an A in. The professors are amazing and really care about their students. They have many office hours and as long as you put in effort and show that you want to succeed, they will do everything in their power to help you and get you that A that you want. The class sizes are quite reasonable and even decrease as you go more into your profession. There are soooo many classes to choose from in a big variety so you can always try to do something new. Salisbury University is a great place for students that want to have a big campus feel with a smaller campus.

Health & Safety: The surrounding area around Salisbury's campus is not the best, a couple of my friends have gotten beat up/jumped while waking alone in the sketchy part of town. On the other hand, on campus I feel very safe and have walked across campus in the middle of the night by myself many times. As long as you are aware of your surroundings and keep headphones out of your ears, you are able to watch what is happening around you. The EMERGENCY pillars are everywhere and make my feel secure and that i know there is someone that can help if I need it. The campus police and Salisbury police are about 5 min away walking distance and can get to campus quickly. Also, if there is a medical problem, the hospital is also 5 minutes away.

Campus Housing: My personal forming experience was amazing. I got the roommate that I requested, just like a lot of my friends did. Every floor in my building was like a family, where almost everyone got along, besides the usual drama. One problem i noticed was that the floors kind of stuck to themselves because they were so close so the floors didn't really socialize. When everyone did socialize, everyone got along great, especially at the RA thrown parties and hangouts in the cool lobby downstairs. The Quad was honestly my best friend when I wanted to get away and study because it is so quiet and it's a comfortable feeling, being surrounded by fellow students just having a good time. The laundry rooms kinda sucked because there are 200+ people sharing about 9 washers and dryers but once you figure out the best times to go down there, it runs smoothly. All of the dorms are in great shape and recently updated, except Severn, even though there are rumors of it being upgraded soon.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life greatly affects the social atmosphere, with almost always something happening on campus to support a great cause. The fraternities are great and mostly known for throwing great parties. The sororities aren't really as prevalent on campus and usually overshadowed by the frats. The greek life and non-greek life get along just fine. There is no formal greek housing on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Even though our school is D3 in athletics, Salisbury has a very big fans and AMAZING school spirit! We love our sporting events and every game is a ton of fun to go to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every time I leave to go home, I catch myself just counting down the days until i'm back to my home away from home. Salisbury University is a very tight knit community, where almost everyone gets along with one another. Everyone there is so friendly and respectable, with amazing professors that really care about their students. Make sure that you get involved on campus as much as you can and you will most definitely find lifetime friends, I know that I did.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am confident that I will have little problem getting hired in my chosen field.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at Salisbury University is a year I will remember fondly.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus facilities for both mental and physical health are well supplied and excellently staffed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The bathrooms are cleaned twice a week, and there is plenty of space for almost anything a student might want to bring with them to college.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not have any personal experience with Greek Life on my campus. I focus much of my time on studying.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not an athletic person, and so don't have much personal experience with the athletic facilities. However, our facilities are well maintained, and we even recently got a new and improved sporting events field.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was apprehensive, as attending University was my first time away from home for an extended period. However, the campus culture and people are both very welcoming, and the courses were interesting and enlightening.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's great because I love the environment and my roommate is awesome and we get along really well. My professor are also very approachable as well and want to help the students learn

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am about to start my third year of school at Salisbury University and I cannot wait to go back. The people, atmosphere, the spirit, and the athletics all play a huge part in making all of the students that attend Salisbury proud to go there.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The low cost of the school compared to the high ratings and competition that this school provides makes the value of my education tremendous.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are no problems at the school itself health and safety wise, its the surrounding area of the school that is the cause of most of the worries if there are any at all.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although it is sometimes difficult to get certain college housing that only because they are so popular to live in, because of their cleanliness and modern up keep.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek community doesn't do much for the school in any way other than allowing students to find friends in a social group setting.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports teams have tremendous support from the rest of our school, and allow us to have great appreciation and pride for all the work they put forth.

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.
