3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing has its perks, but can get annoying too. For example living off-campus can be good because you don't have to worry about making too much noise, you can eat whatever you want, and go wherever you want and you can come and go to the campus as you please. The struggle with off-campus housing is you have to wake up early in order to be on time for your classes. If you drive you have to pay for a parking pass. If you take public transportation it can get exhausting.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is great. You can catch the bus to Bowie town center and they have restaurants and a food court there where there are different varieties to choose from. The costs of the food is reasonable as well. There aren't any student discounts for the food there, that should be considered though.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties at my school are somewhat okay. We may have a party here and there but the parties aren't as hype as parties at other college campuses.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus strictness at my school is effective. With the strictness our school wouldn't be one of the best schools now. We need rules and regulations to follow in order to have a fun, SAFE campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid process went smoothly. I accepted my awards and when it was time for them to be disbursed I received them on time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is okay. It could be way better. For example we should get more of a variety instead of what we have now. Other campuses have good things to choose. A lot of varieties to choose from. The dining halls are fine they are always clean, there is always enough room for everyone. Meal plan and flex dollars come in handy especially for people whole like snacks. The only thing with the meal plan is you can only use it with certain things. There shouldn't be restrictions on our own money. For example you cant use your meal plan to purchase quiznos. We should be able to use our meal plans to get everything.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its perks. For example, you get to have later classes where you can fully prepare yourself in the morning. Also you can arrange your classes to be different times so you can take naps, or spend time with friends. The bad parts about campus life is the space. Most people need or require a lot of space, and sometimes having a roommate may make you feel crowded.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't really been through the off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Better off campus dining, easily accessible

2 College Freshman

Administration: Visitation is horrible for freshmen. The school focuses more on that and parking.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not many on campus parties an when there are, they are weak.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Quiznos is the only good thing about it. Can't use the meal plan on Quiznos though

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Resident Hall I stay in now is the worst. A lot of either old or broken things.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not very exciting but overall a great experience.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Don't know much about it

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Big part of college life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Variety of places to choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not many parities on campus, most are off campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Not a big variety, high cost, nasty food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's decent. Smaller and easier to maneuver to classes.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Now that no one can live in goodloe apartments the only off-campus living arrangement is your home. You either live on campus or you commute.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are no student discounts

Cost effective


1 College Junior

Administration: Visitation hours

5pm is too late for visitors to be signed in

12 am is too early for visitors to be signed out

we are young adults and should be treated as such

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties are not frequent on campus which is why when parties are thrown their is always a lot of anxiety and excitement about the party.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid always seem to be "out of funds."

Getting financial aid is always a hassle because the school is never willing to help unless you absolutely beg them for help and even then its like puling teeth.

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.
