Salisbury University Among Princeton Review's Best Colleges

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - "The professors here are down-to-earth, friendly, and just passionate about what they are teaching."

This is just one student's comment about Salisbury University in The Princeton Review's new 2015 edition of The Best 379 Colleges. The university is among the nation's top 15 percent in undergraduate education, according to the Review's flagship college guide.

"SU offers outstanding academics, which is the chief reason we selected it for the book," says Rob Franek, the guide's author and Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher. He says colleges are chosen for the book based on data obtained from annual surveys. Princeton Review's 27-member National College Counselor Advisory Board and students have a say in the decision-making process, as well.

“We also work to maintain a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character,” Franek says. 

Spotlighted in Salisbury University's two-page review were the academic experience, the diversity in the student body, students' commitment to their fields of study and the variety of student life activities available.

Other area colleges and universities included in the guidebook are: the University of Maryland Baltimore County, the University of Maryland College Park, the University of Delaware, the U.S. Naval Academy and St. John's College of Maryland.

SU was also named among the publisher's Best Northeastern Colleges for 2015.
