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

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

“I have met so many amazing, captivating professors while at Salisbury. They make the classes interesting and real.”

This is what students are saying about Salisbury University in The Princeton Review’s recently released The Best 377 Colleges. This marks the 14th 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.”

The Princeton Review’s consistent ranking of Salisbury as one of the nation’s best schools speaks highly of the dedication and expertise of our faculty, staff and students,” said Dr. Diane Allen, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs. “We are proud to have received this honor for the 14th year.”

“Each of our 377 best colleges offers outstanding academics," said Robert Franek, the book's author, and Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher. "We don't rank them 1 to 377 because they differ widely in their program offerings and campus culture, and that is their strength. 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 named include the University of Delaware, Bucknell University and 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.
