WHAT I LIKED

Towson has many opportunities for students and the classes are really not that big. The professors at Towson will most likely know your name because of the relatively small class size. In my opinion, this has helped me a lot.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a lack of communication sometimes, but overall I think it is still a good and safe school.
