Towson is a great school. Its wonderful environment gives off academics, and a school that is about their student's needs. Its a great place to leave home for because it becomes your home.
Olivia from Upper Marlboro, MD
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.
