SALISBURY, MD---The Princeton Review, in partnership with USA Today, has named Salisbury University among its Top 80 “Best Value” Public Colleges in the nation for 2014.
The accolade comes on the heels of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s recently naming SU among its Top 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges.”
The Princeton Review lauds SU’s “stellar academic programs coupled with the benefit of a state school price tag.”
“To be named a best value in either of these publications would be impressive, but to be ranked among the nation’s best in both in a single year is a high honor,” said SU Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs Diane Allen. “This is a testament to the ongoing efforts of our faculty and staff, who diligently work to provide our students with a high-quality education at a reasonable cost. This combination allows SU to stand out as A Maryland University of National Distinction.”
Salisbury is one of three University System of Maryland campuses to make this year’s Princeton Review “Best Value” list, which also includes the University of Maryland, College Park; and University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Other Maryland campuses include St. Mary’s College of Maryland and the U.S. Naval Academy.
The Princeton Review rankings are based on surveys from some 2,000 colleges and universities nationwide. Some 30 factors related to academics, costs of attendance and financial aid were considered.
The Kiplinger’s rankings are based on “a combination of outstanding academic quality and an affordable price tag.” Lists in both publications were topped by such schools as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Virginia.
