Towson University Reviews
Review Towson University
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!
I'm a huge fan of Towson University. The environment is great with a not-too-big campus and plenty of students. While their greek life could be improved in size, the student involvement is definitely present and alive. The professors overall are nice and helpful and the advisors are a huge help for signing up for classes and making sure you graduate on time. Towson's website is easy to navigate as well as their campus! There's always friendly faces to help you if you need it. Towson also has nice buildings that are recently updated as well as new improvements in process. Overall, I'm glad I've chosen Towson University to guide me to adulthood.
What I love about Towson is the overall atmosphere. I love being so close to the city but not quite in it. The Towson University community is small enough to see a lot of familiar faces everyday but still big enough to meet new people whenever I want. One thing I think Towson could improve on is its involvement with clubs and greek life. They exist, but I think if more people were to get involved in them and they were more emphasized on, it would get students more involved with the school and would make Towson a better place!
