I love it here. I am currently a sophomore and this school gets such bad credit from other students from other Maryland schools. The school is great, there are some very influential professors here and the school just keeps improving every year. The academic programs keep getting better every year, and the social scene is great. It's easy to make a lot of friends very quickly. I would highly recommend applying or transferring here, especially if you're out-of-state. It accommodates out-of-state students very well and everybody here wants to meet you. Go gulls!
Review Salisbury University
Salisbury University has an amazing atmosphere! The faculty and administration is wonderful, they have so many classes, and everything is so upbeat and nice there. The athletic department is great as well.
As a freshman at Salisbury University I have had an excellent experience. Every professor cares deeply for the students, the classes are challenging yet not impossible, the atmosphere is very supportive. The brand new library makes studying so much easier with the silent rooms and quiet floors (not to mention the built in coffee shop.) My over all experience so far has been great!
