Towson University Reviews
Towson University was the only college I applied to when I decided I wanted to transfer from my community college. Not only was I looking for the right school to pursue my major to the fullest, I was also craving the campus experience. I am happy to say that Towson has exceeded my expectations in both fields and I am proud to be a Towson tiger! Everything from the quality of education, the accessibility of academic resources, and the diversity and atmosphere found throughout the campus are everything I expected and more from this institution.
I have loved my experience at Towson! There are so many opportunities to get involved! Towson has become a comfortable place for me to get out of my comfort zone. At first, the campus seems huge, but after getting involved in a wide range of different organizations on campus, I feel like I can't go anywhere without seeing someone I know! There is always so much to do on campus and so much going on in the Towson area. It is truly such a great college town!
