Princeton Review Places SU's Guerrieri Academic Commons Among Nation's Top 10 College Libraries

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University “students from all over come together to create a safe and inclusive environment for those from many different backgrounds.”

“Everyone here is very welcoming.”

“Every semester I reevaluate how I see the world because of my fellow classmates’ opinions and perspectives.”

These are just a few of the student comments lauding Salisbury University in The Princeton Review’s 2024 edition of The Best 389 Colleges. The University is among the nation’s top 15 percent of four-year colleges, according to the Review’s flagship guide.

“For the 25th year, The Princeton Review has recognized Salisbury as one of the preeminent universities in the nation,” said SU President Carolyn Ringer-Lepre. “It is not an honor we take lightly. Every semester, our dedicated faculty and staff work to ensure our students are receiving not only the highest quality education, but the very best college experience we can give them. Rankings like these provide external validation that we are meeting — and exceeding — those goals.”

For the third time, the publication also ranked SU’s Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Commons as a “Best College Library.” This year’s ranking places the facility among the top 10 in the nation.

Spotlighted in the University’s 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 they felt equally supported inside the classroom and out.

“I know that if I’m struggling with something, even if it’s not related to school, or if I just want to talk to someone, my professor are always there, and they offer the best conversations and advice that I’ve ever had,” said one student in response to the publication’s survey.

Athletics and extra-curricular events also ranked high among students’ interests.

“We have a lot of spirit,” said one student. “A lot of people show up to the sporting events, and they are … so fun.”

“Every class I’ve taken and every club I’ve been a part of has been filled with people who have a deep love for whatever their major is,” another added. “Not only are they passionate, but they’re also incredibly intelligent.”

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.
