| I attended SU for my freshman year before I transferred to another school. I was drawn to SU for the campus size (about 7,000) and the campus is absolutely beautiful. It seems like the university is always building and doing renovations and the campus is definitely growing. Also, the food at SU is really good for a college. There are plenty of options and accomodate to vegeterians/vegans. There are some downsides though, a lot of the girls I met at SU were snobby and cliquey. You definitely need to join a sports team or club to make friends. Night life is pretty good if you are into the party scene. SU students definitely party hard. If you dont know many upperclassmen you find yourself going to the same frat party every weekend and they definitely get old after awhile and they almost always get busted (the Salisbury cops are pretty strict). A lot of the parties in the zoos are fun but you usually need to know someone to be invited. Also, ALWAYS WALK WITH FRIENDS...the campus is safe but the city of salisbury is not. You learn which streets not to walk on (state named streets) but I also know a couple people who were mugged or assalted walking back from parties on the "safer" streets. I would suggest looking elsewhere but thats just me. |

| Before I write this review, the thing people should know is that this school would work for some people and not for other people and vice versa. It did not work for me. Granted I made the most of my college experience, I made friends, joined a Korean sword fighting club (loved it) and went to all kinds of cultural events hosted by different countries and I even might get to see Ghandi's grandson speak next week. Despite this, I am leaving next semester for a community college, biding my time there till I get to UMBC or UMD. If your aiming for a diversified school, and want to meet all kinds of people this is not the school for you. If you are into large campuses you may not like it. |
My feelings for this campus is that it is not too academically competitive in my classes, a lot of people are just satisfied with aiming to get a C in their courses. Anyhow, Starting out as a freshman the classes were not much harder than honors or AP courses in high school (at least in the lower ranked 100-101 level courses). I actually thought my AP courses were harder. The professors were awesome. At least the ones I had.
As for the student organizations go, for sure you can find stuff, but in my experience the majority who really went to the clubs were upperclassman at least from the other clubs I tried. To give you the heads up, some of the clubs may appear cliquey, but that is everywhere in any college or high school, I'm sure. The largest student organization on this campus is CRU, which is a christian organization.
Dorm life is meh. My floor is noisy with people banging on the walls. Other housing on campus may not be this way. The walls are paper thin, so you hear a lot. Of course this is not anything different for any college. I would recommend doing the living learning communities here since they get nicer dorms, if you apply. I did not during my freshman stay here. The people in general are approachable and what not, but sometimes I feel there is a one mindset thing going on.

| I'm a freshmen at SU and I cold not imagine going to any other school. The classes are challenging but as long as you study and stay on top of your work you'll get A's and B's. There is so much to do during the night and day. The university organizes day trips and the games are also fun to watch. Over the weekend, there is always a party but also other things to do if you're not into the party scene. Salisbury is what you make of it - if you sit in your dorm room all day you're going to hate it but if you put yourself out there and meet new people you will have an awesome time! |
