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

    I'm an out of state student, and I was fortunate enough to get a good amount of financial aid. The complaints I have about cost are standard to every university; the meal plan is way over priced, housing can be costly depending where you choose to live on campus.

    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.
