Favorite Class/Professor at TU

My favorite professor at TU is Michael Elliott of the Sociology department. He is one of the most caring professors, and so passionate about what he teaches. I have taken 4 courses with him, and always fight for a spot in any course he teaches.

Something on my Towson University bucket list is....

Being a senior, I have crossed a lot of activities off of my TU bucket list, but my favorite thing that I have crossed off is going to Burdick and climbing the 3-story rock climbing wall!

Favorite Local Shop or Restaurant

My favorite local restaurant is Gino's! On Tuesdays they give a student discount if you show your OneCard, so I go more often than I'd like to admit.

What is your favorite TU tradition or event on campus?

I'll give one of each! My favorite TU tradition is to rub Doc the Tiger's ears before each semester! There are 3 or 4 Doc the Tiger statues around campus, and the legend goes that if you rub Doc's ears before classes begin, he'll give you good luck! My favorite events on campus are without a doubt the football games! I might be bias as I was in the Towson University Marching Band for 3 years, but the energy and atmosphere at the games are hard to compare to anything else. They are so much fun, and being surrounded by the student body is amazing.
