Why did you choose Towson University?

I chose Towson because it was close to home, and I was an affordable option for me. It wasn't my first choice, but I cannot imagine myself feeling this safe, appreciated, and at home at any other school.

What do you love most about Towson University?

The focus on progressive change and always striving to know more and be better as a University and a community. I feel that all of my intersecting identities are not only acknowledged but understood, and celebrated. Towson is my home, and I feel safe and loved despite what I may see happening in the rest of the world.

Where is your favorite place on campus?

Glen Woods. Life can get stressful, and I love being able to sit outside and get some fresh air/ de-stress. Glen woods is like our own little park, and it's nice to not have to drive off campus to have a space to reconnect with nature.

What advice would you give a prospective student?

Open your mind. This is your first experience out of your hometown, with the same people, rules, and expectations as always. People are coming from all over the place to be at Towson, and you have to be open to new ideas and mindsets that will challenge what you may believe. It can be difficult to do this, but opening your mind will only help you in understanding yourself and others.
