Towson University is in a great location.Not so brightFinance
Towson University is in a great location. I feel as though any type of person can find friends and activities to do at this school. However as far as education goes, it is definitely lacking (Speaking about the Business School). The professors are generally underqualified compared to other universities. Many do not speak english well and are often not interested in learning or helping students. Often, it feels like teaching is a secondary job for them (especially at the lower levels of the business department). They also have a MAJOR problem with accepting too many students into the business school and not having the required classes open for them to take. Most of the time you have to plead with the administration department to get into certain classes, and they can be very rude, unhelpful, and uninterested in helping you.This problem is extremely frustrating and can end up costing you extra time and money due to staying in school longer (Seriously, it's that bad).Overall, I feel like they are behind in education and are progressing slower than competing universities.

I was very excited to go to TowsonBrightArt & Design Department
I was very excited to go to Towson at first. The campus is gorgeous and the school seemed to be awesome, but when I started, all I encountered were issues. I am a transfer student from a great community college, and I found that comparably Towson is extremely disorganized and teachers seemed to lack enthusiasm or helpfulness that I was used to. I have encountered rude or unhelpful staff and advisers on more than a couple occasions, teachers that don't seem to care about anything but a paycheck, and the education (art and design) commonly lacked any room for creativity and growth as an individual. I am extremely dissapointed with the art department and recommend that if you are an art or design major that you don't have Towson as a first choice in schools.
