What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Always be opened to going to the events happening around campus because it is the best way to make new fríends especially with Towson students.Walking around campus can take a while but if you are ever in a hurry you can take a shuttle. West Village Commons is worth the distance for the best food on campus.
Rai from Montgomery Village, MD
Definitely check out the campus and talk to current students and faculty. That will help make your decision right on the spot.
Felicia from Ridgefield Park, NJ
I would suggest taking a tour or visiting the campus before enrolling, that will really tell you if you belong. Also i would suggest going to the on campus events, at least for the first month. In September they have a month with things to do everyday. Freshman are given a carnival which is fun to go to for at least a little while. And although many freshman don't want to take part in the planned activities on their Dorm Floor i would suggest going. I had a lot of fun on my floor and is how i made my first friends.
Kristin from Waldorf, MD
For any future students, I would first tell them to live on campus for freshman year. By doing this, you are more likely to meet new friends who are also freshman. It is also more convenient than commuting.
Carly from Maryland
Don't bring a car unless you absolutely have to. Towson doesn't normally give out freshman parking passes, and it's seriously a waster of money if you manage to get one. You can walk everywhere, and there's a bus system, so why pay for gas?
Melissa from North Beach, MD
Have fun, stay safe, and make sure to show up to class on time! College can be a breeze as long as you balance fun with serious academic effort. Do as much as possible while on campus; participate in extra curricular activities and take classes that you will enjoy. Do not be afraid to meet new people and always remember to be yourself! If you do these things, you'll find that college with blow by and you will have grown into a better person for it! P.S. Remember to sign up for classes early, they fill up quick!
Benjamin from Aberdeen, MD
Take a tour and make sure you know what you want, especially for housing. As of Fall'10 they're finishing up a lot of construction on teaching buildings, but moving onto reconstructing a lot of the residence halls. Living on campus is always an option and tends to be cheaper, plus no RAs and there is a shuttle if you don't have a car.

Also, buy points. The meal plan is a scam unless you like/live close to a dining hall (Glen complex or Newell). It'll probably aid in keeping you from the freshman 15 too.
Ruth from Phoenixville, PA
GET INVOLVED. The more you get involved on campus, the more people you'll meet and the better your college experience will be. Towson has a club/society for everything out there and if they dont you can always create one. I highly recommend greek life! Going greek isn't only for rich snobby kids but for everyone. There's an amazing mix of people in fraternities and sororities and they enhance who you are through philanthropy, group study sessions, and greek socials. You'll meet alot of people and truly learn about yourself as a person.
