What do you love most about Towson University?

Towson University is a very diverse school. What I love the most about it is how welcoming everyone is. I came from a very small all-girls' high school in New Jersey and so you would think that coming to Towson was a major change for me. From the first day of the new student programs, I felt that I (personally) mattered and fit in. It's very refreshing to be walking to class and have a bunch of people stop you to say hi or ask how your day is going.

What advice would you give a prospective student?

The best advice that I could give a prospective student would be open to new possibilities!! I came into Towson my freshman year as a Pre-Medical student and remained very set on staying in the program. At that time I never imagined going on to switching my major the following summer. This being said, my advice to a prospective student is to go beyond your comfort zone and fully explore the things that you are passionate about, as this will lead you to find a path that is right for you.

Why did you choose Towson University?

I thought that Towson would be a good fit for me because it was a rather large school, but most of the classes were fairly small. I also liked the widespread community engagement, in regards to extracurriculars and student organizations. I was very big with community service in high school and found a plethora of opportunities to continue this at Towson. The proximity to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. is also a major plus. (The ultimate deciding factor for me was the campus tour I went on during my senior year of high school. It was during this time that I truly felt like I belonged at this school and could see myself in the shoes of the students who were walking by.)

Where is your favorite place on campus?

I'm not sure if I have one specific favorite place on campus, but I spend a great deal of time at Starbucks (and the library) and West Village!
