2 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: in dier need of new food choices

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is a small campus with great potential

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: If you are not from the area than living in the regular dorms is worth the money. Living off campus is expensive in this area if you don't want to be in the hood. CMRC is the most expensive (where I live now) at $4450 per semester. It has some perks but its small perks don't outweigh its cost. The other dorms are reasonably priced and my friends say they are decent.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus so idk.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I don't go to any of the parties but I have friends that do and they always say they were okay.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants at the Bowie Town Center and further down the road. It is on the metro bus route which is convenient.

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.
