Bowie State is a great HBCU, that offers a variety of majors to include all. Students and Staff are all genuinely promotive of your goals. I would definitely recommend this school to family and friends.

Bowie State University is a small school with about 6,000 students. While mostly commuter, it serves those in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area and is easily accessible by public transportation. Most importantly, the campus is a tight-knit community where students and instructors alike feel like they are apart of an academic family.
