    The best food you will find is at West Village Commons. The dining hall is packed with a variety of dishes that are exquisit. There is also a mini market on the first floor named Outtakes as well as Panda Express. Other dining halls such as Glenn and Newell are also great. There is Au BonPain on the Hawkins building, i have never eaten there but everyone seems to enjoy it

    at towson university, there are a variety of food and dining places. however, the quality of the food depends on where you go. if you go to the west village, paws, or susquehanna dining halls the food will be very good. the food are prepared by amazing cooks and it is presented well. the workers in these dinning halls are very polite and they love the job that they do. although the prices are higher then others it is completely worth it. on the other hand if you go to the newell, glenn, or cla dining halls you are in for a rude awakening. the food is utterly disgusting and never seems to be fully done or cooked. the workers are kind of rude and they really are not as happy or welcoming as those in other dining halls. however, because their prices are very low, i do not believe that it is worth it. moral of the story, you get what you pay for so just manage your meals and go to the dining halls that are quality food.

    It's college not a home cooked meal every night. The food isn't bad and places like Newell Dining Hall/ The Den, West Village Commons, Au Bon Pain, and the union ( sus, p-tux and paws) are your best choices to survive.

    Unfortunately, I currently live off campus right now for my first semester however; I occasionally eat at the dining Hall and the food is average in my opinion.

    Dining halls aren't all that great, but there are many other great dining options on campus! Au Bon Pain was just put in and is a campus-favorite. Everything is very fresh and there are many healthy options.

    There are over 10 locations to eat at. If you explore through all locations , you will never get tired of Towson's food and dining. And if ever you get tired of campus food, you can always eat out.

    There�s so many options for Greek Life. Sometimes the National PanGellenic Council Greeks team up with Morgan State National Pan Hellenic Council Greeks and they out on block shows and things. It�s very fun!

    As a part of a fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon, I can easily tell this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Greek Life is vastly underrated at Towson and more people need to become involved.
