Founded in 1866 as a teacher-training school, Towson University is a public institution and part of the University System of Maryland. TU graduates more health professionals and teachers than any other university in Maryland. Towson is listed among the “Best Northeastern” colleges according to The Princeton Review. The most popular majors include art and design, business administration, biology, nursing, and elementary education.
Overall, I think Towson University is a wonderful school! I originally was going to go to another university in Philadelphia, however I fell in love with Towson while on a college tour. One thing that I especially love is that because it is a big school, I am always meeting someone new.

Towson is a huge school. They have lots of options, academically and in extracurriculars. They've even got a rock wall and planetarium!
