Why did you choose Towson University?

I chose Towson University because it had everything I wanted in a school and it truly felt like the right school for me! I wanted to go to a school that has big school aspects (big sports games, Greek life, etc.) but I did not want to go to a school where all of my classes were in giant lecture halls. Towson has the best of both worlds with big school aspects, but small class sizes. I also just had a feeling that Towson was the best school for me, it just felt right!

What advice would you give to an incoming new student?

Fully embrace the college experience, meet new people, get involved, go to class, go to events on campus and step out of your comfort zone!

What is your favorite TU tradition or event on campus?

One of my favorite events on campus is Dance the Madness (DTM)! Fraternities and sororities pair up, pick a theme, choreograph a dance and perform for a huge audience in SECU arena! I participated in DTM this past year with my sorority and a fraterntiy and we came in first place! It was such a fun way to meet new people, get involved and make memories!

What advice would you give a prospective student?

Keep an open mind! You could be surprised at how much you like a school that you never expected to like. Also, when you are visiting schools try to think if you could picture yourself there or not. Try to imagine yourself just walking around the campus on a normal day, try to imagine yourself eating in the dining halls, try to imagine if this could be your new home!
