Area Attractions

Orioles Baseball If you're visiting CSU during baseball season, it's a perfect time to see the "Birds!" Leave a little early and visit Sports Legends Museum and Geppi's Entertainment Museum, seconds away from the yard, and 20 minutes away from CSU!

Baltimore's Inner Harbor The Inner Harbor is one of the most visited attractions in the city! The Inner Harbor and surrounding neighborhoods offer a variety of shopping experiences, night light, museums and dining options. The Inner Harbor is just 15 minutes from the university or a quick trip on metro.

Maryland Zoo in Baltimore Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is the third oldest zoo in the United States, behind Philadelphia (1873) and Cincinnati (1874). Just a 10 minute ride from the University it's a great outing for your seminar or corporate meeting participants.

Superbowl Champions, Baltimore Ravens A football game can be a great team building exercise while visiting CSU! M&T Bank Stadium is 20 minutes away from the campus and to avoid traffic the metro is walking distance from our campus!


  • I just wanted to let the both of you know that my husband's 50th birthday party turned out wonderful. Everyone had a really good time. The room setup, the food, the servers all were excellent. The servers were very friendly and attentive to whatever we needed. I will definitely recommend The Tawes Center and use your facility again for any future parties. Thanks again for helping make this party a night to remember for my husband.

  • I want to thank you so much for your outstanding service! I truly appreciated your suggestions and expertise, without being pushy. You did so, with professionalism, patience, kindness and care, as if you were planning the event for one of your family members; and I appreciate it so very much. From suggesting having the shower at Coppin, to the slideshow, the music, the candelabras; your touch put the event over the top. I don’t know what I would have done without you. When I tell you my daughter, her husband, our family and friends were just ecstatic about the venue, they were in awe. We had such an amazing time! I must admit, I would have never thought about having an event here (not sure why) but from now on Coppin’s Events & Conference services will be my first choice for an event. Demetrius did his thing as well. I wish you could have heard the comments; this is so nice, I didn’t know Coppin was like this, I want to have something here. This day was so special for me and my family, you knew that and you ensured that it was; for that I’m so grateful. You are definitely where you need to be; event planning. Again Dawnica, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for me and my family. Until my next event, take care!
