Overall Experience: Bowie State University is a great HBCU. I love my school, even though it can be frustrating at times. Bowie State is filled with a lot of different people with great ideas that can and will be heard. The determination that bowie state drives into their students and faculty is what makes it very unique, not only do they want you to succeed but they make sure that your professors are doing everything they can possibly do to achieve that goal. If I had the option to do it again, I would choose bowie state. Because of the diversity here makes it a more "at home" feeling.

Overall Experience: From my course adviser, to my Professors, they put in their best to know every student in person and see to it that you understand the course offered. I am offering Computer Science at Masters level and the learning experience is really great. With weekly assignments and up-to-date Computer systems(Hardware and Software), i am rest assured that if i can keep up with the tuition fees, i will definitely graduate knowing how to implement, develop and execute everything i have been taught and exposed to during the learning period.

Athletics: When it comes to the sports at Bowie State, it brings a lot of people together. For example some people go to our football games and football practices to meet new people and to get out of their dorm. Our team performance has been really good this year, our football team went to the CIAA championship and our basketball team is doing really good right now. If you were to go to one of our games you can see that a lot of people come to the games and support the teams.

Overall Experience: My school experience has been great so far. Your experience is what you make it. When teachers see you engaged they become more supportive in making your dreams come true. Our school uniqueness lies within our family environment. As with most families you have challenge moments. But our department really tries to work towards the common goal of success
