Overall Experience: It is a really chill campus. Everyone makes you feel welcomed, and it feels family oriented. The things that makes my school unique are: the chants, people, activities, and the vibes.

Overall Experience: The students are great, the professors can be a handful but for the most part helpful. The campus is not that big, the student to teacher ratio is a great size, for teachers to work with the students personally.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far attending Bowie state university I have had an great experience, the campus is not to big and the student body is great here. There is always educational and fun programs going on and there is always a person you can go to for help for anything you need on campus. Only thing I would like to change about Bowie State is how there is little to no help you can get outside of the college financially and it is too much of a hassle to receive help from financial aid here.

Overall Experience: It is very hard to find funding and assistance with funding unlike other schools i have attended. The business aspect could be a lot better and organized.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Honestly, so far my college experience at Bowie State has only been okay. The financial aid office is not as informative as much as they should be about school finances to the students which makes things difficult sometimes to not worry a lot about if you'll be attending next semester. Some of the rules and regulations for staying on campus are a little too strict for students to get things done without receiving unnecessary fines. You have to be extra careful with what professors you choose for a class, a lot of them can be disorganized and are bad with availability and communication skills

Off-Campus Housing: The school has flyers and posters for off campus living but I think they fail to realize we are college students. Tuition, books and other cost are already digging our pockets deep

Party Scene: The party scene at bowie is bad. The hours are barely enough time to enjoy yourself and the police make it hard to party. They are literally in the party being annoying. Realistically who wants to party in a crowd with cops? Plot parties are great until the police come.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Bowie state campus is very strict about their rules as they should be. All of our campus rules are to serve in the best interest of us, the students so I abide by all rules and respect them.

Campus Food: The campus is ok. Some days its really tasty and some days its not to great. Other than quizznos there aren't many choices to choose from. The cafeteria gets tiring as well as the same options in the pub. Often times I order out.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
