| I'm an instate student, first year student, but i would gone to George Mason if it wasn't so expensive.|
Positive: As far as the classes i take, they are not to hard, or too difficult. If you take the effort to learn, you will learn a lot. Especially if you show interest. during the week, there are usually school sponsored events, but most students would probably find these things boring(like myself). You can always hang out with the friends that you make during the week and on weekends. Professors seem interested and are willing to help if you seek help. The girls are beautiful for the most part, and seem to be pretty easy, in honesty, if you get to know them well enough. The mall is close to walk to.
Neutral: Unless you make it known to your friends that you want to do things other than party, you will wind up partying every Friday and Saturday. Unless you are a girl or in a frat, its pretty hard to get in depending on the time of the semester. The food isn't bad, but after a while, you get tired of it. The frat guys aren't all too bad, but the Sorority girls all look the same...Leggings, boots, and jackets. They seem to be b***** too. Since Towson is a D1 AA school, sports aren't as big as they are at schools like MD, but nonetheless, football games/ basketball games are always enjoyable.
Negative: School repair is going on currently so it looks kind of bad. You have to really try to find something else besides parties. A lot of people go home on the weekend because the campus can be boring at times.(All people want to do is party!) The crime around the mall area is pretty bad.
People seem to think Towson is the back up for UMD but it's a pretty nice school. Nothing too exciting, but if Towson would get the construction out of the way, and the student body would do more than JUST party, Towson could be way better.

| Towson has the potential of being a really great school. It has the potential to serve as a great 4-year college experience. It is a really good size school, coursework is very challenging and the school will give you a good degree, and it's also in an area with several things to do. |
HOWEVER, to be completely honest,the bad outweighs the good here at Towson.
For starters, the people that go here are just plain weird. Really, really, extremely weird. If they are from Maryland, everyone pretty much knows everyone already, but if they don't, it doesn't matter because everyone just sticks to who they know.
I'm from a town pretty much in the middle of nowhere in PA, and I'm sorry, but I have to say that the coolest, most down to earth people that I have met at Towson are from NJ or NY. From what I have noticed (this is all just my opinion), people from MD think they're somebody special...when the reality is you're most likely a loser/weirdo with no personality or style that comes from a boring dry town somewhere in the state of MD.
I know this may sound a little mean and biaseed, but it's just the truth & its what I have noticed. And I know this isn't really important but people from MD do NOT know how to party! Any party that I've gone to with people from NJ/NY were the best time. But if I go to a party with any of my friends from MD...all I meet is WEIRD people doing WEIRD things but think they are sooooo cool.
Did I mention the amount of CRIME around the campus of Towson? Or how about the whole state of MD?? It's horrific.
I could go on and on, but to sum it up, if you are from MD (and you're actually reading this still and not offended) this is honestly the school for you.However if you're from NJ/NY/PA, I HIGHLY ADVISE YOU to go elsewhere. You might get a good education at this school, but the ONLY WAY you're going to make friends here is if you join a frat or sorority...and even then, your friendships are most likely going to be all fake.

| Overall, I like our school a lot. The staff has been very helpful and appears to want to help each student grow in every way. The social atmosphere is also very diverse which what I love. We have every kind of person here. On the contrary, people can remain to stick to their own group. However, you have to kind of put yourself out there and find your niche. The academics are pretty good There is a wide array of classes offered. Prof. could be a little better but hey, you'll find that everywhere. So far, I've have found Towson to be a great new experience in which I think everyone should experience. Some people are overly critical of the school, but I believe is the perfect medium between being a huge university where you feel like just a number and a small college where everyone knows everyone. |
