The area of Towson has it all. It is the ideal college town with everything to offer, aside from school spirit—it is obvious that there is a lack thereof of that. Students love the fact that Towson has a selection of many bars, restaurants, a great mall, movie theaters, and a bookstore, all within walking distance of the University. The local community is, for the most part, friendly toward the students, but the interaction among students and locals is not that frequent. Another great aspect of Towson’s location is that it is not in the busy city of Baltimore but right outside of it, which is what students find most convenient. There is a vast variety of places to go to within 10 minutes of the school, including downtown Baltimore or Fells Point, which is most popular on Halloween.
Although there are many students from multiple schools that surround Towson and Baltimore, the schools do not interact that often. Furthermore, even with the presence of many local bars closer to campus, many students still prefer the downtown Baltimore bars instead.
