Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Salisbury University is best known for the parties and drinking. However, that is not all the school is about. Salisbury University is rich in tradition and educational values. Although I did have my share of fun nights and wild days, the degree I obtained from the University will forever succeed any party I have attended.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Entering college can be a scary experience for the new student as well as the parents of the student. However, this does not have to be the case. College is a chance to experience new surroundings, people, and activities that you may have never imagined yourself doing. Therefore, I feel that going into college with this ideation will help a new student not only adjust quicker, but to embrace the idea of beginning their college career. When selecting a college, students as well as parents should think realisticly. Not everyone will adjust to the big city life such as new york city. On the other hand the small town life such as Salisbury University may not fit the bill either. Attending college is about getting involved. Encouraging your college student to become involved in campus activities is the key to their success. Yes, academics should always come first, but truthfully you will tire yourself out quick if everyday is about class, class, and more class. Gain your education, fulfill your dreams, but remember your college years will always be remembered. You will make mistakes, you will feel defeated, but if you are aware of this you will do fine.

Salisbury University is a well rounded college that wants their students to succeed in life and with that said the professors as well as the staff do everything they can to make sure that happens.

Salisbury is only a half hour from the beach. Salisbury is close to home but far enough to not be home. Salisbury also reminds me alot like home but again it isnt home and thats whats different.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students need to make the decision on there own with parent input because they are the ones going there. Look at everything not just at the academic part of the college, but the extra activities that are available to you, for ex. sports and clubs. Know what kind of learning you like, whether its hands on or not because that helps you know whether a small class size is good or a larger class size is good for you. Know where you ultimately want to go in life and make sure that college will help you get there in some sort of way. Make sure you also look at the surroundings; beach, city, etc. Make sure you are comfortable about the surroundings and nothing is too overwhelming. Parents make sure you support your children and help them get to the college that they really want no matter what needs to be done to get there. Parents and Students do not let the little stuff matter, money is only an object and you want the best for yourself and child so do whatever it takes to get them there. Students embrace college with everything it has to offer and have fun.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We're only a half an hour from Maryland's (and one of the east coasts) resort destinations, Ocean City. This offers a ton of summer jobs for students and the ability to live at the beach! We're also known for our undergraduate research and the emphasis placed on that by faculty. We're a really inviting campus and we're known to be friendly. Also, Salisbury is a fun place to go to school because there is simply so much to do on and off campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I can give would simply to take the tours of campuses and actually "take-in" the tours. Ask the questions that you want the answers to. Campus hosts will talk for an hour and fifteen minutes about why they love the university. They should also tell you why you or your student WILL love the university. Sure, you want to know about financial aid or how to schedule for classes. But, don't you also want to know what that group in the library could possibly be working on? Don't you want to know what your host does for fun on the weekends? Don't you want to know what the professors are really like? Campus hosts typically do their jobs because they love their school and are proud to attend, they won't lie to you and that's how you figure out what college is the best fit. To get the most out of the college experience, LIVE ON CAMPUS ... for atleast a year! Become active in clubs, talk to professors, play intramural sports like dodgeball or lacrosse. Build your character by building your resume. There's no better way to enjoy college.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The relationship wit the community isn't the best. Sometimes students feel targeted by community members and the local city police for simply having fun. However, the school is working with community and campus leaders to reconcile our differences.

Classmates are very friendly and usually eager to help out.

My advice to students is to find a school that is recognized for the career you are choosing. This way the material you learn will have a strong and positive influence on your career. Also, choose a school you feel comfortable in. Make sure the size and environment is inviting to you. Visit the school and look at the students to see if they seem like they have similar interests to you. Finally, choose a school that has extracurricular activites that you enjoy doing. This way you can participate in something you love to do and meet new people at the same time. In order to have a great college experience you want to make sure you get the most out of the college career wise but are able to fit in with your surroundings as well as the other students.

Visit your choices overnight to get a good representation of the people and life other than classes. Also sit in on some lectures and meet professors. Finally be yourself and try toget involved with clubs you think you will like and do what makes you happy.
