Tour Guide at Towson University
Class of 2020
Hometown: Bridgewater, NJ
Towson has a small campus feel but has the opportunities of a large university. I loved how the campus is completely walkable, and there is a 17:1 student-faculty ratio, which has since allowed me to get to know each and every one of my professors on a personal level, as well as seeing the same faces in my classes every semester.
Get involved and try new things! College is the best time to branch out and have new experiences. Go to the involvement fairs and sign up for clubs (they always have free swag!). By joining new clubs I have met some of my best friends, and it really helped my adjustment of being away from home for the first time.
Nothing beats going to Freedom Square when the weather is nice! Its the center of campus, so there are students playing instruments, catching up with their friends, eating between classes, watching Netflix on their laptops (there's wifi outdoors too!), getting homework done, and student organizations tabling. It's the hot spot for free t-shirts and food giveaways and I always end up running into all of my friends there.
The resources Towson has to offer. I love having free access to the writing center, the academic achievement center, the career center, and more. It's a huge help and the fact that they have student employees makes the offices a lot less intimidating.
