    I think it�s bang for your buck because you get a WHOLE lot. You can ride any of the Towson shuttles for free or the Collgetown shuttle (which takes you to other colleges) you get a nice gym and there are sometimes yoga classes m, boxing classes and more. You get to go to all athletic events for free. And there�s so much more

    Towson has the mall right up the street so you can normally get pretty good deals there. Uptown is awesome if your old enough to get in. Marc train can get you to DC for like $7 dollars.

    I love Towson to death, I've never been as happy as I am at Towson, but being an out of state student, the tuition is very expensive.
