What Students Are Saying

4.01 Average Rating
A lot of students drink in the dorms but most real partying takes place off campus.
If your parents let you, bring a car! It's not the safest area in the world. On campus is safe but off campus is not. You can easily walk to the CVS for basic needs like prescriptions, toiletries, and food that you can't find in the campus bookstore. A shuttle runs between the campus, the mall, WalMart, and Target on Saturdays. Yes, only saturdays. Every other day if you want to get to any of these places you're out of luck though WalMart I believe is within walking distance.

Try to get your work done. I know its liberating to be out of your parents house and be able to do whatever you want but that will all change quickly if you get put on academic probation because you went out with friends more than you studied.

Do not stay in your dorm, you will get bored and will make no friends. Explore and open yourself up! Try your best to get along with your roommate and the people you share a bathroom with. Me and my first roommate hardly spoke and I got tired of trying to involve her in things so we ended up not speaking to each other. At the end of the semester I got a new roommate and we hit it off so much better! It might have been because she came from a bad situation and this new one was much better, but either way we were both happy and are close. If you're having problems with someone, it's a very smart idea to talk to your RA or RD as soon as possible before things get out of control. One last thing, GO TO CLASS!!! It will make things so much easier for you and you won't be panicking with your tests and work at the last minute.

Stay focused and enjoy your time. The campus and people are great, so take advantage of that and have fun.
Paige from Elkton, MD
We have some amazing faculty, but there are still some bad teaches so use rate my professor before signing up for classes. You can make friends for life by starting early and reaching out to people in your dorm, I lived with my roommates from freshman year to senior year. It's okay to change your major, talk to your advisors, they're readily available.

Participating in extra-curricular activities is a great way to get the best out of Salisbury University and will help build your resume.
Mariam from Columbia, MD
Salisbury is somewhat of a party school, so be careful when getting involved in off campus buzz and fun.
Meya from Baltimore, MD
Worth every bit of the money spent. It all go towards a very nice and clean campus. It's not an expensive college. The food provided in our commons is AMAZING! We have days such as Lobster day, make your own pizza day, different culture cuisine days, etc. Worth every penny. Looking throughout the campus and academic buildings, it shows that the money wasn't put to waste.

Don't be afraid to be outgoing and make new friends. In high school I was interested in Habitat for Humanity but never went to the meetings. During the fall semester, the club had a meeting, and I decided to go, on my own, without knowing anyone. It was one of the best decisions I made at Salisbury, I met some amazing people, and get to hang out with them while helping others. I also pledged a sorority in the spring which was amazing. I never thought I'd see myself in a sorority, but after attending interest meetings, and seeing how close the girls are, and how they actually act like sisters, I knew that was the kind of relationship I needed at Salisbury to feel at home.
Lauren from Egg Harbor City, NJ
Go to the club fair... there is something for everyone and is a great way to meet people with common interests.
