'U.S. News' Again Names SU Among 'Best Colleges'

U.S. News & World ReportSALISBURY, MD---U.S. News & World Report today named Salisbury University one of its Best Colleges for 2014.

“Rankings like these reflect the hard work of our award-winning faculty and dedicated staff. They help attract, teach and support outstanding students,” said Dr. Diane Allen, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs.

The 573 universities in the Best Regional Universities category are split among four geographic areas — North, South, Midwest and West. In the northern region, SU ranked 65th in the top tier among 181 publics and privates. It also was named among the “Best Colleges for Vets” and “A-plus Schools for B Students.”

U.S. News uses several criteria to measure academic quality including academic reputation, graduation and retention rates, financial resources, faculty resources, student selectivity and alumni giving.

Last month, The Princeton Review named SU one of its Best 379 Colleges for the 16th consecutive year.

The Princeton Review’s list is compiled through a combination of statistical analysis, campus visits and student surveys. Its rankings represent the top 15 percent of colleges and universities, both public and private, in the nation. In partnership with USA Today, The Princeton Review also named SU one of the Top 80 “Best Value Public Colleges.”

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has named SU among its Top 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges” for the sixth consecutive year, as well as one of “25 Best College Values Under $30,000 a Year.”

Other publications also have taken note of what SU has to offer. In the past two months, SU has been named among “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes, “The Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money and “America’s Best Bang-for-the-Buck Colleges” by Washington Monthly.
