What do you love most about Towson University?

Towson is big enough that you will meet new people in every class but small enough that you are more than just your ID number.

What is your favorite TU tradition or event on campus?

Going to see the Goats in the Glen! Every year, goats from Harmony Church Farm in Harford County, Maryland come to Towson University and spend time eating invasive types of plants off of trees in the Glen. They are usually on campus for about 1-2 days and students are able to get a close look, take pictures, and observe the goats as they do our landscaping in order to preserve the Glen Woods!

What advice would you give to an incoming new student?

Every semester, take at least one walk around campus and put your phone away. This campus is beautiful, but it's easy to forget when the only times you walk it are going to/from classes and meetings.

What advice would you give a prospective student?

College is a very personal and individual thing. What works for someone else may not work for you. But don't worry, It takes time to adjust. Make sure to try and put yourself out there, and you will do great!
