4 College Junior

Nightlife: A lot of off campus house parties and stuff, not sure of the local bars though. Having grown up in Maryland I've been going to DTA and Fed Hill for the vast majority of my nights out and I'll probably keep it that way.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife Uptown is great if your 21+... If not you must know people (or follow) to get to the house parties. The party scene that I have experienced so far is very positive and makes the week go by faster!

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are plenty of places to go if you are looking for a party. Many students have off campus houses or apartments that parties are hosted at. You could also go uptown on York Road where there are plenty of bars.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: My first year I drove back home every weekend to work so I wouldn't know much about the party scene.

College Senior

Nightlife: I'm really just there for my education. I have a young child and work full time so I do not currently have time to experience the night life. It seems like it's great for those who have the opportunity, it's just not the lifestyle I lead right now.

Towson is, without a doubt, a bar school with a great nightlife. If a student wants, he or she can find something to do just about every single night of the week. In fact, around campus, you will see promotions for clubs or bars just about every day of the week. Students have their favorite bars, whether it is uptown or downtown. What makes Towson’s nightlife so great is that there are so many different bars to choose from that the scene does not get old too soon, as it does at many other colleges. You can easily get away with pre-gaming with friends in your room, and the uptown bars are within walking distance from campus.

Students agree that the nightlife in Towson is outstanding. There is so much to do and somewhere to go every night. There are tremendous parties, but they tend to be held more often when the weather is nice. Since Towson’s weather lacks many warm nights, the bar scene happens to be more frequented than the house-party scene.
