5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Bowie State is located amongst a community which makes the place very humble and quiet but not too quite where it's boring. we have a town center located not far from the school where a lot of the students can partake in weekend activities or even getting a job.

Bowie State University is a close-knit community within a small community. Being the first historically black college and university in the state of Maryland, Bowie offers more than just an educational experience: It offers a reputation surrounded by history and tradition.

The people are also what make BSU a special experience. From the Greek life to the professors and faculty that are eager and willing to help students succeed, Bowie State University is not just an educational institution: It's a family supporting each other through a process of undergrad and graduate studies.
