What do you love most about Towson University?

Towson has helped me grow not only academically but also personally. Now, I'm not as shy as I was as a freshman and have built long-lasting friendships with people I've met. My experiences have pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to gain life-changing opportunities.

Where is your favorite place on campus?

Definitely my room! I decorated it nicely so that after a long day of classes and work, I can relax.

What advice would you give to an incoming new student?

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. It’s the only way you’ll experience college to the fullest!

What is your favorite TU tradition or event on campus?

My favorite TU tradition is surprisingly going to the football games. I have no idea what’s happening on the field, but the energy everyone has is contagious. There are even games that we sometimes receive free t-shirts!
