Princeton Review Again Names SU Among Nation's 'Best Colleges'

Princeton ReviewSALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University encourages “active participation in things that are bigger than yourself,” “a main priority of campus life is to give back to the community,” and “going to class is a joy.”

These are some of the student comments about Salisbury University in The Princeton Review’s new 2018 edition of The Best 382 Colleges. The University is among the nation’s top 15 percent of four-year colleges, according to the Review’s flagship guide.

“We are thrilled to be recognized once again as one of the nation’s top campuses by The Princeton Review,” said Dr. Karen Olmstead, SU interim provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Accolades such as these highlight our students’ commitment to excellence, as well as the hard work and dedication of our supportive faculty and staff.”

Spotlighted in the University’s two-page review were the academic experience, the diversity in the student body, their commitment to their fields of study, SU’s dedication to civic engagement, and the variety of student life activities available. Students applauded the campus as “a diverse and unique place where everyone around you is friendly and willing to help.”

SU provides a “small university feel with big university resources,” the guide added.

In addition, The Princeton Review again named SU one of its “Best Northeastern Colleges” and among the nation’s “Green Colleges.” The sustainable accolade is an honor SU has earned each year since The Princeton Review first offered it in 2010.

SU is one of three University System of Maryland campuses in the guidebook, with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County; and the University of Maryland, College Park. Other area colleges include the University of Delaware and the U.S. Naval Academy.

SU also has been ranked among “America’s Top Colleges” and “America’s Best Value Colleges” by Forbes and “The Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money. For 20 consecutive years, SU has been one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Regional Universities in the North.
