So I’n choosing between Towson, UMD, and the University of Richmond. Towson is most affordable by far, costing about 7K a year while UR is the second cheapest, costing about 23K.
I haven’t heard great things about Towson online. People are saying on the forums that it’s a joke school for people who just want to party. I would be in the honors program and majoring in either molecular biology or physics. So I would probably be around more academicly minded individuals. I went to TU4U and met some professors and department chairs. They were all super cool and nice.
I’m kind of stuck. Are there smart and serious people at Towson? What is the honors college like? I love hanging around nerds at my high school and I’m afraid I won’t be able to find a nerdy crowd. I’m also afraid that the classes for the first two years won’t be challenging enough. Any thoughts?
