What is your overall opinion of this school?

Towson is a very good school, but it does not do a very good job of aiding students in meeting other students' freshman year, and it is a very heavy bar school, so parties happen but you need to know the right people. It is also a very beautiful campus and if you stay on campus everything is within a 15min walk. Lots of free swag opportunities. Football games are fun and draw a crowd, there is always a tailgate, but the team is not that great. Still a good time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Towson University is a very safe, diverse, and politically active school. The class sizes aren't too big or too small and the people in the classes respect the professor and the purpose of it. I have to say that the gym is my favorite part of campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, if you are looking for a decent school to get a degree at, Towson University is fine. It's a teacher's school, so they're very focused on the educational degrees. Personally, I think their facilities are too small for how many students they admit every year, and the surrounding area isn't the nicest, however, they do have good options for disability services and they are extremely inclusive in their curriculum and conversations. It isn't the school for me, but I have a lot of friends who really like TU. Instate it's inexpensive and accessible, but I would not go for it if you're an out of state student. Also, do not depend on the advising staff unless you are in a smaller department. Their advising segment is not great. I had to pull my own weight for a lot of decision making and figuring out how I was going to finish my classes in four years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is great place for students to learn in a diverse environment with multiple opportunities . The faculty members are friendly and approachable. I feel that Towson University provides a safe and secure environment for students on campus. I enjoy the additional transportation services available to assist students with secure rides to and from Baltimore Penn Station. I am proud to be a student at Towson University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! The dorm rooms are huge with air and heat allowing for students to be comfortable year round. The food choices are endless and are all so good. There is so much todo around campus, between the mall, food places, and other activities the possibilities are endless!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have learned to love my school. Involvement is a big thing here, and people care about others a lot. Mental awareness is well spread around campus, so never feel afraid to share your issues or seek for help. We are not the biggest sports school, in fact, people rarely stay for a full game of football, but we do have spirit when it comes to wear Towson gear and attend to the tailgates. Towson is a safe campus with such a different vibe comparing weekdays to weekends. With about 3000 affiliated Greek Life students Towson is also known to be a bar school. We have a lot of fun at those but don't expect to have a lot of house parties at TU. Also, all bars are 21+ with some Friday 18+ nights. Overall Towson is a great school, with very reliable and well-prepared professors that will care about you and your grades, class sizes are ideal to get to know your professor and classmates, is not the biggest campus but it isn't either small at all. They could do much better with the food since there are not a lot of options, but from what I've heard they are working a lot on that, including opening new cafeterias and restaurants. Dorms are well equipped, and even though you will hear some people complaining, the accommodations are pretty reasonable for the price we pay. There are plenty of student organizations, clubs, intramurals, and the best gym I've ever workout at, so no excuse to not get involved at TU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Towson has many aspects that are both large in your face but also subtle and I think the balance Towson maintains is why I like it here. Addressing academics first, Towson is unique because it is well known for offering majors that are near impossible to find. All the professors are very well versed in their subject and are competent at teaching material which I know isnt something that many people encounter. The professors also all have different teaching styles and it is encouraged that if your professor isnt the best for you finding another to assist you is easy since all the professors make themselves available and encourage students to get help from them. Even the worst rated professors are not horrible. In terms of class size there are MANY students at Towson but the classes doesn't feel monstrously huge and most professors know every student. I have lived on campus the whole time but all my closest friends are commuters. Towson does a good job at keeping facilities secure while also not feeling like peoples ability to house guests are impeded. The parking from what my friends tell me is predictable if entirely nightmarish in the beginning and Towson has very understandable parking rules. The food on campus is meh and personally it is something the average person would be completely fine with but I am an athlete and eat different than the majority. That being said I wouldn't starve because campus still has a great variety of places and Towson is very diligent with maintaining their websites so information stays available and accessible and the majority of campus has good WiFi.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Towson University is my dream school, and I cannot imagine attending another! For one, the campus is beautiful. I have seen many college campuses, and TU blows every other institution out of the water. The buildings, landscaping, and even the sidewalks are alluring, meticulous, and pristine–whether I am walking to class or work it is one of my favorite things to do simply because campus is always so visually appealing, especially in the midst of the seasons. It is the perfect size too, neither too big nor too small. It is very walkable, although the number of hills and stairs can be bothersome. 23,000 students frequent Towson University, but it is a big school with that small-school feel. Class sizes are manageable, even introductory and 100-level courses, and the university boasts an average student to faculty ratio of 17:1. There is no shortage of places to eat around campus either: TU has three all-you-can-eat dining halls, several restaurant vendors in the University Union, Starbucks conveniently located in the library, and cafes and other small eateries in the gym and various academic buildings. Towson University is situated in the suburbs and is only a few blocks from the heart of the city, York Road all the way to the Towson Town Center. There are enough recreational activities in a one-mile radius to keep everyone busy and satisfied between eating, working out, going to the library or seeing a movie, and even shopping at our four-story mall. This feature enhances the social atmosphere of the university, allowing TU’s students to have fun both on and off-campus. Towson University and the Towson area itself can pride themselves on the level of safety promoted at all times; not once have I ever felt threatened or fearful of my safety, even being alone and a young woman. There is constant construction on campus and throughout the city but it is not generally an inconvenience, although parking has been known to cause trouble since the population of the university and the city are growing so quickly. Towson University provides ample on-campus housing opportunities in 18 residence halls, ranging from traditional two-person rooms with community bathrooms on each floor to suite- and apartment-style accommodations for the upperclassmen that elect to live on campus. Quite a few students go home for the weekend, but the many sports, clubs, and organizations that TU has (not to mention everything that the city has, too) will surely keep everyone occupied. The study abroad opportunities that are offered are plentiful and the academics as a whole are stellar. Towson University is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s top 100 public universities, and it is evident why.
