                        Salisbury University, a member of the University System of Maryland, is truly a Maryland University of National Distinction. A four-year comprehensive
                     university offering 55 distinct undergraduate and graduate degree programs, SU is one of those rare places where individual talents are celebrated while big
ideas are encouraged and nurtured. Located in the heart of Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore, a mostly rural region flavored by the salty air of the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake
Bay, we are just 30 minutes from the beaches of Ocean City, MD, and two hours from the urban excitement of Baltimore, MD, and Washington, D.C.
