U.S. News & World Report Again Names SU Among Nation’s ‘Best Colleges’


SALISBURY, MD – U.S. News & World Report again has named Salisbury University among the nation’s “Best Colleges.”

The 596 institutions in U.S. News’ “Best Regional Universities” category are split among four geographic areas — North, South, Midwest and West. In the northern region, SU ranked 62nd in the top tier among 175 publics and privates, 33rd among the north’s “Best Value Schools” and 14th among the region’s “Top Public Schools.”

SU also once again made the publication’s list of “Best Colleges for Veterans” and was ranked one of the “Top Performers on Social Mobility.”

U.S. News uses several criteria to measure academic quality including student outcomes, faculty resources, financial resources, student excellence, standardized test scores, high school class standing among first-year students, alumni giving, and assessments from peer institutions and high school counselors.

Other publications also have taken note of what SU has to offer. Earlier this semester, SU was again named among The Best 387 Colleges by The Princeton Review and a “Best Bang for the Buck” college by Washington Monthly.
