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

Holloway HallSALISBURY, MD---U.S. News & World Report has named Salisbury University one of its Best Colleges for 2016.

“We are proud of our continued presence among U.S. News & World Report’s top regional universities and excited to be in such good company,” said Dr. Diane Allen, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs. “These rankings reflect the accomplishments and hard work of our dedicated faculty and staff, as well as our outstanding students, all of whom help make SU A Maryland University of National Distinction.”

The 577 universities in the Best Regional Universities category are split among four geographic areas — North, South, Midwest and West. In the northern region, SU ranked 71st in the top tier among 183 publics and privates. It also was named among the “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 380 Colleges for the 17th 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.

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has named SU among its Top 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges” for the seventh consecutive year, as well as one of “24 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.
