    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.

    It depends...I'm an out of state student, so Towson is a little expensive, however, they had an amazing speech pathology program and lots of clubs and activities, so for me it was worth the extra money.

    Because I already live within the state of Maryland, I use the train to go home. Instead of taking the more expensive trains, I use the Marc train. Tickets cost $5 for students and they have several stops that go all throughout Maryland to Washington D.C.

    For in state students, it is very fairly priced. If you look for enough scholarships the whole thing will be paid for. Right now in state is about $18,000 and out of state is around $35,000.

    average in state tuition for Towson is around 23,000. Out of state tuition is around 34,000. It's a shame we have to pay so much to further our education.
