"The school is ok when you want a family feel. You meet so many different people. Very sociable school and plus its a hbcu. Most professors are knowledgeable and want you to succeed.Then you have others that are the opposite. The overall process of getting into the school is draining. You get very discourage and may want to reconsider going here because the administrative staff was highly disorganized (incompetent). Hardly could get in touch with anyone and when you would was given the run around. No one in the office had the same information or even on the same page. You could never get the proper instructions especially with financial aid/counselors and the student accounts office. Needs better improvement before it deteriorates people from coming to the school! The schools website itself, information in each departments, syllabus, rules/policies, students bull dog connection, etc needs to be all updated.Oh There needs to be straight point of contacts to talk to actual person instead of back and forth through emails. Sometimes making an appointment can delay a student in trying to start classes."

"Bowie is a great school, I learned a lot from going there. You gain some what of a family when you attend the school. I am so happy I went. I gained a lot of friends and knowledge. The location is great, nested right in between DC and Baltimore. There is a train right on campus to get you to either...enjoy!!!"

"I love the bachelor program at Bowie State university offered. The communication program has plenty of options, for people that want to do it all. Emerging Media is the concentration that I choose at Bowie State University. This concentration provides you with the skills required to pursue careers in content programming, sales, advertising, and administration within both traditional and emerging technology industries."

"Bowie State University was a wonderful surprise for me. Many students attend Bowie State for convenience and I can't say my reason for attending was much different. Most professors will work with students and clearly outline course expectations early on. Various activities, many ways to be involved on campus. I would recommend to any student interested in pursuing nursing, professional studies or communications."

"Bowie State University is a great school if you want to become an educator. The education program requires that you complete a year long internship with 128 credits to complete the program. The history department also has great, insightful professors who are very helpful and qualified in their fields. Downside: the administration office is unorganized and careless at times. Paperwork will easily be lost and it is hard to get the desired assistance when trying to settle financial matters."

"I would describe Bowie State University as small knit family and a campus that progressively advancing everyday. My experience here is a one to remember because you'll meet excellent faculty, staff and peers that will be great connection in the future. This university has great programs from computer technology, business, nursing, social work and more. Also, the student life on campus is awesome, there are several different organizations and events that goes on during the semester."
