Most Helpful Review for Towson University

When I first walked on campus, I fell in love with it. Take a tour! It's wonderful! Enjoy the grass knolls and talk brick buildings before you decide Towson University is your home. Then if you do decide that you're home, Towson University makes you home with carnivals and other events on a day to day basis the first whole month you're on campus, so Freshmen fear not, this school is outgoing and introverted, studious, active and fun.

    Towson is a good sized school for anyone. There is a lot of delicious food and informative teachers. I rate Towson University a 8 out of 10; students love Towson but Towson could develop a little more sophisticated technology wise.

    The facilities, faculty, and students are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. The dorms in West Village are so nice, it feels like I am living in a hotel. There are tons of clubs and activities as well.

    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 offers many degree programs that other public universities do not, like Deaf Studies and Graphic Design. The campus is very diverse and there is always an event going on. It is right next to baltimore so there are plenty of great opportunities to explore and work with professionals. I love this school. It is great for any type of student.

    The atmosphere on campus is so homey and the people here make it that much easier to make that transition from high school to college. There is always someone around that can assist you in both your academic life and social life. With that being said, there are many great opportunities to open social circles and network so you can gain connections for the future.
