Towson University Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.

Samantha

My classmates are very diverse; most with the drive to learn and succeed, but a good amount who are in college for the wrong reasons.

alpha

Honestly, I have a great classmates who are willing to learn.

Parrish

The student body is pretty diverse. All cultures are welcome and expressed evenly. Many people are quite nice and helpful.

Tiara

The dress code is so random. A lot of students like me don't care about impressing anyone and can wear hoodies and sweat pants, but some care too much and dress up or even try to make their hoodies and sweats look good. A lot of students like to get involved in something, but you can easily slide by without doing anything. But, doing something motivates you to work hard and the people you meet are perks.

Benjamin

My classmates are a very diverse crowd of people from different backgronuds who have had a wide range of personal expierences, but key students standout from the rest of the student body because they are either more knowledgeable & have a greater understand of course concepts and others take greater roles as leaders in seperate groups & organizations on campus.

JaShaun

My classmates are friendly and eager to help one another.

Jennifer

The teacher preperation program at Towson University included cohorts of aspiring teachers. The classmates in my cohort became a family. We as a ‘family’ of future teachers held on to each other as we battled waves of assignments, teaching observations, and the usual ups and downs of being student teachers. We went through a lot of struggles and shared many successes. The challenges and the experiences we underwent as a cohort continue to be the glue that connects us all to this day. As a group of teachers, we continue to rally around each other on good and bad days.

Baynham

They are somewhat conservative and keep to themselves if they dont know you.

Jared

My classmates are very helpful and encouraging.

Ashley

Students are fun-loving but hard-working.

Danielle

We have a very diverse campus. We have international students from all over, on top of people from all over the US. Even though we have a lot of students from all over we do have a major part of the student body coming from Maryland, New York, and New Jersey. We also have students from different economic backgrounds. Three of my friends are here on scholarships and federal work study, a guy on my floor has his parents paying for all his college expenses and there is a girl on my floor who goes home to work on the weekends so that she can help her family pay for bills. I myself have met people who are different religions than me, who have different race, political views, and sexual-orientation than I am and I can call many of them my friends. They have taught my a lot about different cultures and religious views and I have grown as a person because of it. An interesting aspect about my school is how people dress. We are just as mixed as we were back in high school. You still have the people who dress to impress, wearing khakis/dress pants and button ups/collared shirts to class or a skirt and nice top, the people who look like they just rolled out of bed (bed hair and pj bottoms) and the in-between. My classes alone are diversely dressed. Everyone wears what ever they want but the majority still sport something Towson related, be it a sweater or zip up, or a Greek t-shirt or Towson hat. Either way I always just dress however I feel comfortable in that day.

Allison

There are all kinds of groups on campus and they care very much about what they stand for. Ive attended some events by groups and feel that they are very friendly people for the most part and just want to get the word of their group out to others. Students who would feel very out of place would probably be the super genius kind. As for dress I have seen everything from sweats and hair pulled up to high heels skirts and a nice blouse. Students wear whatever their mood feels. Different types of students certainly do interact. Personally I have a wide variety of friends here. In the dinning hall you might have a group from one of the sports teams, the really artsy kids, the random group of friends who just rolled out of bed and the single person trying to get some work done while eating. Most of the students here are from Maryland, New York and New Jersey. I would say that the middle class is the most prevalent financial background. Students here are all over the map with politics. We have clubs for both republicans and democrats and they try to educate students on the importance of voting. Students usually dont talk about future salaries.

Brittney

My classmates are usually typical American teenagers stuck in their own silly little worlds of music, alcohol and entertainment.

Maxi

There is an outlet at Towson for any and every social group. Everything from LGBT to Hillel, to out of state or out of country students. If there is not an already existing outlet, one can easily be created. Towson is extremely diverse, and there is a place for every kind of student. Students wear any and everything they want to class. There is plenty of space for free expression. Different types of students do interact, many clubs colaborate, and a lot of the time people make friends in class. Most students are from Maryland, or New York/New Jersey. Financial backgrounds tend to vary at Towson. I have met many wealthy out of state people, there are a lot of people who went to community college for 2 years to save money, and of course the in between people. Finances do not really affect social groups. This is not a very political campus, there is a mix of political backgrounds, mostly left leaning though. However, there are not many people participating in the occupy movement. I hear more emphasis on people finding the job they want, rather than the pay they want (namely education majors)

Bethany

A lot of students are from New York and New Jersey, as well as Maryland, Pennsylvania. Students wear anything from t-shirts and sweats, to dressy clothes to class. It really depends on your plans for the day. There are a lot of jocks, and sorority and fraternity members.

Aryelle

A lot of the students stay in their own click, but when you get to know the students it's another story; many of the students are down to earth and nice. The diversity amongst Tiwson's students is vast; there are many different ethnicities and cultures. I find that a majority of students commute and lots of students are from out of state. When students come to class it is often rare to see more than five students wearing sweatpants or sleepwear. Mostly everyone wears jeans, pretty casual.

Ashley

nice

Kelly

Motivated.

Aiyana

They are very diverse and generally friendly people.

Carolyn

I was surprised to see so many students from New York and New Jersey. I'm from Maryland and expected to see a lot of in state students so it was a pleasant surprise that many of the students are from out of state. Most students stick with their group of friends but it is easy to make friends in your classes since you have many group projects requiring interaction between group members.

Michelle

I do not know much about these groups, however, I do know that they are popular and effective groups. I hear about these groups on campus due to their engagement in various activities and events. These groups seem to be goal oriented and fun to be apart of. I think that most people would not feel at of place if they found people they are comfortable with. It doesn't matter what you look like to fit in, a long as you feel comfortable with friends or classmates then that's all that matters. Some dress up for class but a majority just wears casual clothes but mostly comfy clothes.

Michelle

The student body at towson is very culturally diverse with more and more acceptance of students uniqueness!

Jessica

Most people are very nice. It is such a large school so there is a large diversity of students which makes it nice for everyone to find a group of friends they fit in with.

Zachary

We have a very diverse group of students here at Towson. There are tons of student groups supporting all different kinds of people. Due to this I feel that no student would feel out place at Towson university. I would just have to say that Towson a school with every different walk of life and culture represented.

Jessica

My classmates are easy to get along with and are goal oriented, they are very similar to me in most aspects.

Alyssa

My classmates are really nice, helpful, and all together interested in making a difference in the world as heath professionals.

Towson University is the perfect blend of diversity, culture, talent, and creativity; the crayon box with ALL the colors cherished and loved by all.

Amanda

They seeem to care more about their grades then about learning the information, but I've had good experiences with them in group work this far.

Michelle

My classmates are all very considerate and polite of each other and their surroundings.

Jacquelyn

For the most part they keep to themselves and can be difficult to socialize with, but they all seem willing to put effort into their studies.

There is an overpopulation of female, wealthy, snobbish students from New York.

Kristen

From general studies to a specific major, classmates were always warm and welcoming. Once you join Towson's academic membership you become a part of a family!

Allison

Most are friendly, easy-going and helpful. Somethink they know it all.

Angela

The classmates that I have had so far at Towson are mostly nice and easy to get along with after that first week where no one knows any one else in class. Most people at Towson will help you when you need help and everyone want s to succeed, so in a way they also want you to succeed.

Kelsey

My classmates are great because our classroom size is so small, we are able to get to know each other, where as most universities have classroom sizes of 100+ so you are not able to get to know them very well, as well as your professor.

Emma

My classmates are each unique individuals who come from different walks of life. Each person has different experiences, values and interests which they bring to both class discussions and campus life. Because of the variety of different students and cultures, my school has a well rounded atmosphere.

Gerald

My classmates are professionals, most have families and they want the optimal educational experience presented in a rubric, ( no surprises), and they will go out of the way to challenge themselves and to show the professors that they are scholars.

Rebecca

Lots of students from New Jersey and New York.

Donald

Majority are white females, from affluent families. Most are friendly. Usually other students in class already have their own set of friends (usually living on campus) so sometimes it is hard to build friendships in class because of this.

Jordan

My classmates are fun loving, yet hard working students.

Jensy

Most of my classmates are superficial; they tend to spend more time conversating about selfish and trival matters rather than global issues that impact not only them but everybody else.

Trudymae

my classmates at towson university are people that are very studious and strive for their grades. They are always concerned about their grades and take schooling seriously. Some of my classmates and i form study groups each time we have a test to make studying more effectively. Overall my classmates are nice and determined.

Chelsea

Most of the students at Towson are there to learn and get an education which makes it a good environment to learn in.

Sergio

The class mates at this school for classes not surrounding my major are usually faceless individuals that I'll never seen again and even when I've tried to make an attempt to create a student or friendly relationship it ends up being pointless since I'll never see them again. Students in classes that deal with my major, I sometimes run into again and have an excuse to become friends. Theses students are usually intelligent, sarcastic and creative.

Kimberly

My classmates usually keep to themselves.

Brittany

My classmates are easy to talk to and get to know personally.

Marissa

Even though I may not like all of them, my classmates are very smart and I learn from them as well as my professors by working in groups and communicating well.

Reliable individuals who are "no-nonsense" when it comes to projects and work study groups.
