What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
I loved being an asset at Towson University, because college has provided me with a well-rounded education on integrity and artistic sensibilities. My college curriculum provided me with complementary skills to use after graduating, as well as expanding my opportunities for personal growth. My professors at Towson taught me to embody a professional attitude which emphasizes motivation, determination, respect, civility, communication, maturity, commitment, and staying organized by: being prepared for class, on time for class, and respecting each teacher's requirements, and being attentive.

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.
