Salisbury University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
Salisbury creates some great teachers, but they create teachers who read out of the textbook. The curriculum encourages no growth in the educational fields and no deviation from the current ways of teaching. As we've seen in recent years, history is not being learned effectively by today's students, and I believe that this is because of how it is taught. When I tried to address this to my instructors at Salisbury, I was asked to leave the program. While Salisbury creates great instructors, they really do more to instruct to the test, a fatal downfall in our current educational system. If Salisbury was to teach more to individualism and was more open to alternative teaching styles, they would create much more effective teachers.
Salisbury has a wonderful Theatre Program. The professors are hardworking, creative caring individuals who's teaching will impact your life for years after college. The class size is small which is great for acting courses. Two professors are the head directors and hold auditions for their shows throughout the year. These auditions let you use what you learn in class in a real life situation. I know my experience has greatly improved how I view acting.
Overall, Salisbury was a great program the small class sizes and really getting to know my classmates as well as professors really helped me get through my degree. The only drawback was the internship process. Being from Montgomery County I wanted to intern in MCPS because that is where I was planning on getting a job. I wasn't able to and was at a huge disadvantage for my teaching career. That's why I'm back in school now.
I love it . Public school with a private school setting . Academics is great and great campus
I love that Salisbury University is a university but is still a small school. The campus is a beautiful short walk from one end to another. However, I did not like the parking situation because there was not enough and paying for a parking permit was expensive. I did off street parking and rode my bike to the campus. The professors at the school are all very knowledgable and passionate about their subjects. All of the professors encourage your success so if you;re struggling they are more than happy to help you. I now go to the University of the Arts and am amazed at how many students cannot draw well. I am grateful for my rigorous drawing training I received at Salisbury University under J.K., C.G. and EB.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at SU! I met a lot of great people, both students and professors. My professors prepared me for the "real world," as well as the next level of my education. I'm still in touch with many of them. The campus is beautiful and the student-life is a lot of fun. I had a great experience at Salisbury University.
Overall, Salisbury was an excellent choice for a BA program. The professors were down to earth and provided a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to their subjects. I spent most of my time in the Sociology, Anthropology, and History departments and was pleased with most of my classes. I also found the school to be very easy to navigate and the registrar, financial aid office, and cashier's office were all run smoothly and were able to adequately advise me on my options. My only two complaints are 1) that my degree has not increased my earning potential that much (but that is just the way the economy is right now and does not reflect the school itself) and 2) the school does not have enough Graduate programs.
Was a great experience. I was also ran track and cross country for the school. Being so involved make school more fun. Great teachers willing to work with your schedule.
The campus is very well kept but that's where it ends. Financial aid people don't assist students with helping to find scholarships or other funding options, in fact, they are very quick to take students to collections. The instruction in the nursing program is a mix bag of former students, nurses in the field who have never taught before, and inexperienced non-instructional personnel. The instructors are not interested in the students within the programs, only the numbers enrolled. Maybe I am an exception because of my unique situation but I was treated poorly and not assisted even after asking multiple times of my instructors and my advisor.
