Salisbury University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
Salisbury University is a great college to go to for many reasons. The professors are passionate and qualified experts. The University has many fresh and healthy eateries to enjoy a meal any time of the day. There are many clubs and committees that work their butt off to make sure everyone on campus feels welcomed. I am a transfer and commuter student from Florida, and I was welcomed by students and professors with open arms. It's also a green campus with water bottle fill stations in every building and solar panels in the parking lots. The curriculum is challenging but prepares you for real-world opportunities. The only problems I have with this university is that the Social work program is very general. There are no specific concentrations like mental health or gerontology. Also, there are no nutrition programs; which is something that I am personally interested in. For the question, "How much did your degree influence your earning potential?" I gave only three stars. I gave only three stars because social workers do not make a lot of money no matter where I go with my degree. I would have to get a Masters and/or Ph.D.
Salisbury University is an excellent mid major school. You can be a big fish in a small pond while also getting a great education. The recent improvements made to campus facilities are a great plus. The campus is also very walkable. The school also has many great D-III sports teams.
Salisbury University is a wonderful university to attend, in the relatively small city of Salisbury, Maryland. Since I have graduated from the university, it has expanded quite a bit, and now inludes a state of the art science building. Many of my same chemistry professors are still teaching at the university, and I know that anyone who goes to SU for a degree in chemistry will get a great education!
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.
