Where is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus would have to be Burdick. Being an Exercise Science major, majority of my classes are held there, but the atmosphere is always friendly. In addition it includes some really cool stuff such as a rock wall and a ninja warrior course!

What do you love most about Towson University?

I love the small class sizes. I came from a small school and was used to small classes, so to be able to come to college and have similar class sizes was awesome. At Towson most professors get to know you by name, you're not just a number!!

Why did you choose Towson University?

There were many reasons I chose Towson University but the 2 reasons weighed most heavily were the small class sizes, and my major. My freshman year, my smallest class had 13 students in it which was awesome, and most stayed within the 20-30 range. I knew I wanted to do Exercise Science, and that is not a common major offered. I didn't want to go to a larger school or a school farther away.

What advice would you give a prospective student?

My best advice is to go wherever makes you feel at home.
