Towson University has a beautiful campus year round and a fun night life. Although it has a reputation for being a big party school with some of the top girls in the country, this is only partially true. Towson does have greek life but most people go to the bars on York Road. It is also just 8 miles outside of baltimore which means easy access to the inner harbor, fells point (more bars), and Oriole and Raven games. The girls are very pretty but my feelings are there are pretty girls where ever you go. I would choose this college again if I was searching.
If you plan to attend keep in mind,at Towson University you are a number not a person. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. I would not go to this school again. The pro's.... none the con's everything. If you are a woman you are not safe at Towson University.
I would recommend Towson University because the academics are good and the social atmosphere is good as well. It is a college of very many different majors so you will meet a verity of people from all over. It is located just north of Baltimore and if a fairly safe campus and is easily commuted to or live at a dorm. If I had to do it over again I would still have gone to Towson, there are many good teachers and it is underrated as a academic university. One pro is the location of where it is, nothing is very far and you can easily access the north or the south, so there is a big mix of people there. One con is that it has to many kids and not enough dorms, they have been trying to get money from the state and are building a nice new complex of really nice dorms. So hopefully lack of space wont be a problem in the future. One thing that people should know that have never heard of Towson is that when you go you go to a school with 10k-15k other kids from all over the world, so you will meet many other people like you and many that are very different.
When P.T. Barnum donated money to Tufts University, he did so on the condition that the school's mascot be named after his beloved elephant. The Tufts University mascot has been the "Jumbos" ever since.
