SALISBURY, MD---For the ninth consecutive year Salisbury University is ranked as one of the nation’s best colleges in The 366 Best Colleges by The Princeton Review.
The Princeton Review’s list is compiled through a combination of statistical analysis, campus visits and student surveys which the authors characterize as “qualitative and anecdotal rather than quantitative and scientific.” Its rankings represent the top 15 percent of colleges and universities, both public and private, in the nation.
In the 2007 rankings, SU also was named one of Princeton Review’s Best in the Northeast universities and America’s Best Value Colleges.
Newsweek Kaplan's 2008 How to Get Into College guide also named SU one of "America's 372 Most Interesting Schools." Salisbury has earned the honor from Newsweek Kaplan since it began publishing college guides four years ago. The “Most Interesting” schools are based on criteria including academic strengths, student body profile and specialty programs.
Dr. Ellen Neufeldt, vice president of student affairs at SU, was interviewed in the most recent Newsweek Kaplan guide on the growing trend of schools making standardized test scores optional for admission. This year, SU became the first institution in the University System of Maryland to institute a five-year test-optional pilot study.
These honors come on the heels of last week’s rank as No. 7 in the Top Public Universities—Master’s (North) category of U.S. News & World Report’s 2008 America’s Best Colleges guide.
