WHAT I LIKED

As the oldest HBCU in Maryland, it seems to be pretty in what it teaches and offers to students. All the instructors want the best for all their students, so much so they are willing and capable of giving anyone an internship or a job on the campus. All instructors make sure all studies get the material before moving on to something more complicated. As for social life, they have a small campus so it's easy to get around and find something new going on like parties or academic events.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus is almost in the middle of nowhere so it's hard to get around outside the campus. On top of that, there isn't much on campus. Despite that, it's a great place to be and learn/have fun. They offer rides to go to a certain place, so that's a big help.

WHAT I LIKED

What I liked about Bowie State University was the improvement of the campus from a new dorm hall, the student center, and the math and science building. I also like most of the professors I had, their work was challenging but was able to be accomplished.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Expect to have a bit of complication with financial aid help.
