'Princeton Review' Names SU Among Nation's Best Colleges for 13th Year

Princeton ReviewSALISBURY, MD---“The professors here are down-to-earth, friendly and just passionate about what they are teaching.”

“Salisbury strives not only to challenge students academically, but to make them well-rounded as possible.”

This is what students are saying about Salisbury University in The Princeton Review’s recently released The Best 376 Colleges. This marks the 13th consecutive year SU has been included in the national guidebook.

Princeton Review editors add that SU provides “stellar academic programs coupled with the benefit of a state school price tag. … Admission to Salisbury is competitive, and admissions officers want to admit students who will not only succeed but also thrive.”

“We are proud that The Princeton Review continues to recognize the quality of faculty and staff at SU, as well as the excellent students we attract,” said Dr. Diane Allen, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs. “To again be named among the nation’s best is a true honor.”

“We work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher. “Our goal is not to crown one college 'best' overall, but to help applicants find and get in to the college best for them.”

Along with the University of Maryland College Park and the University of Maryland Baltimore County, SU is one of three University System of Maryland campuses represented this year. Other colleges also named include the University of Delaware, Villanova University and The Johns Hopkins University.

The Princeton Review’s list is compiled through a combination of statistical analysis, campus visits and student surveys which the authors characterize as “qualitative and anecdotal rather than quantitative and scientific.” Its rankings represent the top 15 percent of colleges and universities, both public and private, in the nation.
