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.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I’m a first generation college student!

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!

Why did you choose Towson University?

I chose Towson University because the campus is not too big but also not too small. It’s far away enough away from home that I can experience independence but can also go home when I’m craving a home-cooked meal from my mom. The people at Towson are also super welcoming, which has created a pleasant campus atmosphere.
