Salisbury University Reviews
I just finished my freshman year at this university. I love everything about the school. The professors are always willing to help in class and at their office hours; most professors also have student aides who have hours throughout the week. The campus is beautiful by itself and very clean. Everyone is welcoming with open arms, especially the staff. The people who help with FAFSA and GULLNET on campus are so caring and understanding. We have a newer library which is beyond beautiful. Salisbury overall is a great school to attend. Go Gulls!
Salisbury University is an excellent university for all students. It is a medium sized school, not too overwhelming for freshmen but also not too small for a transfer student. Student housing is available for everyone but there are also great apartments all over the city. The beach is a huge seller for Salisbury students, with ocean city being only 30 minutes away! It's a small time vibe mixed with city living, the perfect duo!
Salisbury University is an amazing four-year university located in Salisbury, Maryland. They offer many majors and minors, clubs for anything you can think of, athletics, and so much more. Their admissions recruiters for Worcester County are so, so amazing! Very helpful and kind when they visited our high school. Awesome school to attend!
