Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    Although there isn't much to do around the campus, there is a bowling alley that is about 5 minutes away and a mall in the opposite direction that's about 10 minutes away. The campus does things on campus to keep the students occupied, like speakers, comedians, a spring concert, SU Idol and movies on the weekend. I thought that when winter break came I wouldn't miss Salisbury, but I was clearly mistaken. You will end up missing the school because of the friends and memories that you have made. It was a pleasant surprise to me.

    The campus is great and so are the people. It's very easy to make friends and it's a very laid back campus. The dorms are not the highest quality, but it comes down to what you make of the situation.
