I would advise all prospective students to be aware of the amount of personal and intellectual growth you will experience at a school like TU. Not only will you learn and earn a degree, but you will also learn about yourself by learning about others, which for me is an invaluable opportunity.
When I was applying to schools, I applied based on what I wanted to major in. Once I decided on Secondary Education, Towson was the first choice. It's close enough to home where I can return if need be, but far enough to the point that it's a different environment from what I grew up in. Towson itself and Baltimore as a whole have a large amount of opportunity for exploring and finding fun things to do when I'm not giving tours or doing academic work.
The number of opportunities there are to be involved outside of academic work including soccer and other organizations are a big part of what makes TU the perfect place for me.
The Liberal Arts building sometimes seems like a second home to me because that's where I choose to spend most of my study time. I usually find a quiet space or an empty classroom and get a lot of my work done there. The cafe is a nice perk too!
