What advice would you give a prospective student?

My biggest piece of advice would be to BREATHE. It sounds strange but as a freshman here at Towson University, I remember college applications like they were yesterday. Picking a college where you want to start your future is a heavyweight to put on anyone, so breathe and understand that whatever is supposed to happen, will. All of the stress leads to incredible things, I promise it's worth it!

Why did you choose Towson University?

I applied to 18 schools when I was a senior in high school and Towson was my very last application and I called it my "safety school" in case I did not get into the other schools I was interested in. I ended up getting into all 18 of my schools and after eliminating plenty of schools, Towson ended up in my top 3. The thing that really sold me was the idea of change and differences and what a positive light Towson shines on those two aspects. Here one's differences are celebrated and change is looked at as a scary, but exciting time in one's life.

Favorite Spot on Campus

I would definitely say my favorite place at Towson is the Union. Although the current Union is a little old and is under renovations, it does exactly what you think it would do, unites. People from all years come to the Union, whether they need to study or want to play pool in Paws, it is a place for everyone at Towson.

What do you love most about Towson University?

My favorite thing about Towson is by far the fact that everyone here wants to be here. Never have I ever met anyone who has negatively talked about Towson University. Whether it be the faculty or a student, everyone always has a smile across their face because Towson is simply a wonderful place to be.
