I am out of state and love the school.Quite BrightKinesiology
I am out of state and love the school. It was a wonderful campus along with the people in it. Scheduled classes is a joke, i can still not get classes in my junior year and have to transfer because they are under staffed and only care about money. The school is not worth my out of state tuition of $33,000. i have not started my major yet due to terrible scheduling and all the classes get filled way before you can sign up for them. Overall staff is rude, and there is no help. Most people commute therefore it is dead on weekends unless you are over 21.

From the moment I've been at Towson myQuite BrightComputer Science
From the moment I've been at Towson my experience has been excellent. The atmosphere is amazing, the campus is wonderful, and it has everything one could possibly want in a University. Friends are extremely easy to find especially since everyone on campus is extremely friendly. If you need something to do there are also plenty of active clubs to join within Towson that are bound to keep you entertained. There hasn't been a moment where I haven't felt safe at the school but I do hear about incidents around campus usually through the school text alert system because Towson is really good about letting students know of any problems occurring in or around the Towson area. The area of Towson is also beautiful, I love how Towson is 10 minutes from the city while also been 10 minutes away from some really cool parks. The town of Towson also has an abundance of things to do to keep you entertained and if you can't find something to do in Towson you can always find something to do in Baltimore. TU definitely is the place to go if you want a medium sized school that offers a great education and more importantly a great experience.

Coming from Montgomery County, Maryland I earned oneQuite BrightCommunications
Coming from Montgomery County, Maryland I earned one of the best educations a kid could dream of. Being a transfer student from Montgomery County College in Rockville, MD I was excited to move to a big school farther away from home. Don't get me wrong I love Towson and have made many life-lasting friendships here, but the quality of the education here is horrifying. I had to switch majors just because as an Economics major none of my professors spoke any english. Basically if you're not a Nursing major or Education major this school is a waste of your time, money, and energy.
