Towson University Reviews
Towson University is an amazing school with a diverse campus. There are so many clubs to join and a club for just about any social, religious or ethnic group. The SGA and CAB come up with the best activities on campus that everyone can enjoy. Academically, Towson has writing centers and even tutors that can help with just about anything. Professors always update grades in a timely fashion and are easy to reach. Towson students work very hard but also know how to have fun and enjoy life, its a balance of study and party. The dining halls and food at Towson are probably the best in the state of Maryland, there are plenty of options to choose from, even for those with dietary restrictions. Dorms on campus are really nice and spacious. I honestly could not go to a better school. CHOOSE TOWSON U!
It's a very diverse campus with people from all over the country, each having their own story to tell. The University offers a large range of majors/minors and is also a community hub for major events, both recreational and professional. There are plenty of opportunities year round for job searching and many good available resources for resume/essay building. The campus food is very affordable and diverse, and the nearby local area is always buzzing with activities for afters school fun!
I absolutely love Towson University. I was accepted to both University of Maryland and Towson. I chose Towson because the size is absolutely perfect. Students are able to personally connect with professors and make new friends without getting lost in a sea of people like at UMD. There are also tons of events, volunteering opportunities, career development and student organizations that can help a student become well rounded and more ready for the career life!
