SU Selected as a 2015-16 College of Distinction

Colleges of DistinctionSALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University has been selected as a 2015-16 College of Distinction.

Salisbury was chosen for its “continued commitment” to the four distinctions, said founder Wes Creel.  These include:  engaged students, outstanding teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. 

Started over a decade ago, the Colleges of Distinction website helps young people, and their families and counselors, find campuses that are right for them. According to Creel, the institutions that are included “are the best places (for students) to learn, grow and succeed.”

SU is one of three Maryland campuses recognized this year. Recently, Consumers Digest named the University one of the nation’s Top 100 College Values.

For the 17th consecutive year, SU also is among The Princeton Review’s Best 379 Colleges. In addition, the campus is consistently one of Kiplinger’s Top 100 “Best Values” in public colleges.  Last fall, for the 18th consecutive year, SU was named one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Public Regional Universities in the North.

This year’s Colleges of Distinction e-Guidebook will be available to the public through Over 52,000 counselors nationwide also will receive an electronic copy.
