|Not so bright|
| Towson is a good school to get an education. Depending on your major, you will most likely end up with a great job. Classes are challenging and it is getting harder and harder to get in. I believe right now we have an acceptance rate around 40%-45%.|
That being said, there are some MAJOR MORONS at this school, and I don't know how they got in, or how they can possibly be passing. Not only are they idiots but they party ALL THE TIME and I really don't understand it.
While the school is a good one, some of the professors are ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. This is my third (and last) time transferring and I have to say these teachers are the worst. You can ask other students here...but its as if these professors literally WANT you to fail their class..I'm not kidding.
As for having a social life....well if you don't die walking around campus (seriously the crime is getting really bad) than you might have fun (bars, parties, the harbor) but you have to be EXTREMELY outgoing to make friends here, because not a soul is going to go out of their way to talk to you. TRUST ME. Not one. I suggest maybe joining a frat/sorority.
Out-of-state students reading this and thinking about coming here - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!! This school is full of Marylanders who hate people from out-of-state, and honestly I think it's a jealousy thing, I really don't know but I'm serious. There are so many people here from NJ/NY and guess what, they all stick together just like all the people from MD who went to high school together...always together. No one breaks away from their "groups" and its stupid.
Thus, if you're a bright person and from MD, this school might be the school for you. Out-of-state people....if all you want is a good education, come here....but if you're looking for a good time as well, TRUST ME when I say you will think this school/the people here are sooo lame, and you can EASILY find a better school than Towson.

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.
