The best attribute Towson has to give is their family style environment. Anyone you could pass by on a normal day is always smiling and very friendly. I went into Towson knowing no one and within the first few hours of my first class I immediately felt welcome. The students and staff of this campus and community are not only your friends but they become your family.

The best thing I consider at my school is the diverstiy of students, how the dorms in the Towers are set up, the number of options you have to eat, how big the school is, and the new buildings that were just built last year, or are being built this year.

The location is the best thing about my school. There is so much to do, you can never get bored. It's a big campus, but not too big. Right down the street is Towson Town Mall, which is 4 floors! The movie theater is also located right down the street. There's a bunch of places to eat and hang out.

I always found it to be a safe haven tucked in the middle of a metropolitan area. Baltimore City and it's amenities and fun are close by. More than 10 other universities are in the area, and now an interuniversity connector bus runs throughout the city area, allowing a student to get all over. There were always things for the asking on campus, and now years later, many, many more. I do know this, because my daughter did attend here.

Donald

The best thing about my school is its location. It is very close to a number of local attractions, it is not far from the highway and it is a only thirty minutes away from my house. Towson also has a wide variety of majors. Half way through my academic career there I decided to add a major and it should only take me one extra semester to receive a degree in criminal justice and psychology. Teachers are just okay. Towson University has the habit of letting foreign teachers(with poor english) teach classes of significance.

Jessica

One of the best things about Towson University is its stable balance between school work and a social life. The university is friendly in a sense of emphaizing the importance of chasing after your career while maintaining a healthy relationship with keeping yourself sane with the help of close friends and other relationships. Towson promotes the balance of the two with the help of providing tutors and study facilities, as well as having social events to allow students to have a small break from the stresses of school. It is one of the best things about Towson.

Rabiah

Although I have not fully attended Towson, I have attended several evetns on campus. I would consider the best thing about Towson is the different affinity groups established for students. Not just for different ethnic and religious groups, but also groups for commuters and new students as well. All of the groups are widely promoted and has very high participation from the student body. I've attended different events held by the affinity groups and was very pleased with my experience.

The best thing about Towson University is that they offer such a wide array of different fields of study. Currently I am studying Speech Pathology. I know that if I should change my mind, there are many other fields of study at Towson that I can get into without having to transfer out of Towson. Although I don't plan on leaving Speech Pathology, its good to know that 62 other undergraduate majors, and 44 masters programs are available for me at Towson.

The opportunities that it presents its students. The quality of faculty and mentors that are available.

Gloria

The best thing about Towson is the serene educational environment supported by faculty and administrators. I worked full-time and studied full-time as an undergrad to help support my family. My professors were incredibly passionate about their subjects and the classes were small enough to receive personal attention and feedback. Having a group of caring professors really motivated me to fall in love with British and American literature. I was never once overstressed by administrative errors, and was always given clear service. This personalized attention facilitated my journey as an undergraduate with a lot on her plate.

Jenna

The best thing about the school is the size because it is a mix between small and large and has the benefits of both.

Kelly

The cost compared to the level of education students receive. It is fairly inexpensive to go to Towson (at least for in-state) and I think that students leave Towson with much more than just a degree. Most students work at least part time, so they know what the "real world" is like before they graduate from college.

Katey

It's a good sized school in a small town outside of a big city. The campus is just the right size and doesn't seem overwhelming.

Linsey

The best thing about my school is that it gives me exposure to the new culture of Baltimore and allows me to learns about new areas of the world.
