Tour Guide at Towson University

Class of 2019

Hometown: Towson, MD

Major: Speech Language Pathology

Minor: Deaf Studies


What advice would you give a prospective student?

Don't worry if you come to college with an undecided major. I came to TU not knowing what I wanted to do yet, but I used the Career Center and tried out different many classes until I fell in love with speech-language pathology.

Why did you choose Towson University?

I went to a Fall Open House and when I got there the campus felt like home. During one of the student sessions, I won a TU lanyard and I use it to this day because it reminds me of how far I've come since becoming a Towson Tiger. I love it so much here that Towson is my top choice for grad schools.

What do you love most about Towson University?

I love the Deaf Studies program because it immerses you completely into Deaf culture. Before coming to Towson, sign language seemed cool, but I never really thought about learning it. Now I have taken 6 Deaf Studies classes and, to use ASL for the rest of my life!

Where is your favorite place on campus?

The Van Bokkelen speech path lounge. It's a small room where a lot of people from my cohort hang out between classes. I eat lunch, study, work on group projects, and most importantly relax in the lounge all the time.
