1» I Survived Statistics

The number of times I had to take Behavioral Statistics. So many people had to take this course more than once. I was glad that I took this course with Dr. James Furakawa. I passed this class with an A. It was a blessing for some if they earned a C in this class. I wasn't too enthused that after finishing Stats I had to apply this knowledge in Research Methods, that is a whole other number and story, to be continued...............

1 » First Generation

As a first generation college student, applying and choosing a school was a difficult task for me. I originally decided to go to Syracuse University and quickly realized that it was not the right fit for me. I transferred to Towson in 2008 and knew right away that it was the right move. The small class sizes and great professors drew me in right away. One not so great choice lead me to a ...

As a first generation college student, applying and choosing a school was a difficult task for me. I originally decided to go to Syracuse University and quickly realized that it was not the right fit for me. I transferred to Towson in 2008 and knew right away that it was the right move. The small class sizes and great professors drew me in right away. One not so great choice lead me to a great decision. I was a political science major and had the pleasure of taking several classes with Professor Cates who pushed me in my studies and developed my interest in public policy and law. As my time went on at Towson I was able to work on the Journal of International Affairs and intern with the Maryland General Assembly. I am now attending the University of Maryland School of Law and Towson made that possible for me. I went into Towson wanting certain things out of my education and came out with so much more.

During my time studying for my MFA, I was fortunate enough to travel with “Jago’s Plot” to perform in the Egyptian National Theatre in Cairo with wonderful members of our cast and great faculty members! My two sons, Ralph, Jr. and Rance are now alumni and my wife Nancy attended theatre classes, also. Because of her schedule as an RN, she was unable to attend to completion, but still does ...

My two sons, Ralph, Jr. and Rance are now alumni and my wife Nancy attended theatre classes, also. Because of her schedule as an RN, she was unable to attend to completion, but still does much community theatre. Bob (Ralph, Jr.) is the Technical Director for Milburn Stone Theatre at Cecil Community College. Rance is completing his MA in English at Towson and has published papers and stories. 95- Cairo/ 3-TU grads/ 1-attended

An excerpt from an article by Mr. Don Vetter, Goalie for Team 1 in Men’s Lacrosse: “The story of the 1958 Towson State Lacrosse Club team began in 1956 when a few students convinced Doc Minnegan, the athletic director, to permit them to play lacrosse once a week in the gym… A huge problem was obtaining goal cages and equipment. Doc said the college didn’t have the money to buy goals, ...

An excerpt from an article by Mr. Don Vetter, Goalie for Team 1 in Men’s Lacrosse: “The story of the 1958 Towson State Lacrosse Club team began in 1956 when a few students convinced Doc Minnegan, the athletic director, to permit them to play lacrosse once a week in the gym… A huge problem was obtaining goal cages and equipment. Doc said the college didn’t have the money to buy goals, helmets, or pads. As luck would have it, Don Sudbrink was able to locate some surplus pipe. He and Dieti von Schwerdtner (son of Dietrich von Schwerdtner who was chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and the wresting team coach) knew an accomplished plumber who volunteered his time, skill and the necessary parts to turn the pipe into two regulation goals. Once we had the frames, Doc found the money to buy nets. Bob Scott, lacrosse coach at Johns Hopkins University, made a major contribution to the equipment problem. Hopkins graciously donated a large selection of used helmets, arm and shoulder pads, and practice balls. Jerseys were still a problem. The school purchased some yellow T-shirts to use for scrimmages and games. However, they had no numbers. Someone broke out a black marker and, voila, the problem was solved. The ’58 lax program was ready to roll.”

Though our names were spelled differently, they were pronounced the same. My roommate Lori became #1, because alphabetically her name came before mine. We remained roommates until we each got single rooms senior year. Our last names were rarely used--instead Lori #1 or Lorrie #2. ...
