Princeton Review Again Names SU Among Nation's 'Best 385 Colleges'

Holloway HallSALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University has a “stellar reputation … [of] challenging courses” and provides “everything a student needs to succeed.”

These are some of the student comments about Salisbury University in The Princeton Review’s new 2020 edition of The Best 385 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 once again be included among The Princeton Review’s ‘Best Colleges’ list,” said Dr. Karen Olmstead, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs. “Such rankings are a reflection of the hard work of our students, faculty and staff. We are grateful their efforts are being recognized as among the best in the nation.”

Spotlighted in the University’s two-page review are the academic experience, the diversity of the student body, faculty commitment to students and scholarship, SU’s dedication to student success, and the variety of student life activities available. Students applauded the campus as a place where their peers are “academically driven and focused,” cultivating a cooperative environment.

SU also provides many multicultural resources, contributing to an atmosphere in which diverse students “feel very comfortable and involved,” 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 recently was ranked among Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s “Best Value Public Colleges” for 2019. For more than 20 consecutive years, SU has been one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Regional Universities in the North.
