10» Learning To Keep Up with TU Student

This is my 10th year as a faculty member at TU. During the last decade I have learned so much from my students - teaching them has made me a better mathematician and a better citizen. Students help keep me current, and challenge me every year to work harder to bridge the gap. Society is changing in a fundamental way - IM, txting, FB, tweeting and google groups have fast-forwarded our society into an age of super-fast communication capabilities. Online library holdings, Wikipedia, Project Gutenberg and the WWW in general have provided all of us with virtually unlimited data access. TU students come with more experience and ideas every year. I am in awe of the possibilities. Teaching at TU enables me to continue learning -- not just to keep up, but to think ahead in anticipation of the next generation. This is exciting on every level.

10 » The Number Ten

I have worked at TU for ten years. I have been blessed to work in several departments. In the Sociology/ /Anthropology/Criminal Justice department I was fortunate to touch the lives of at least 10 times that number of students. Working in the library I was able to be part of moving 10 times that number of books (BHI collection), of shelving (expansion of Special Collection and Archives ...

I have worked at TU for ten years. I have been blessed to work in several departments. In the Sociology/ /Anthropology/Criminal Justice department I was fortunate to touch the lives of at least 10 times that number of students. Working in the library I was able to be part of moving 10 times that number of books (BHI collection), of shelving (expansion of Special Collection and Archives) and of great programs the library has had. I am now going to begin working in the Center for Student Diversity and I hope to be part of 10 more years of wonderful things at TU.

10» Making a Mark

When I was a Junior I became a Resident Assistant. I was assigned to Residence Tower and was placed on the 10th floor. My junior year was my favorite year at Towson, and being an RA really made my experience worth it. I learned so much, met so many great people, and it was the first time I felt like I truly made my mark on Towson. I went on to be an RA during my senior year as well. This experience was different but equally as remarkable. I loved being a part of the Housing and Residence Life community and the experiences I had there will carry on far into my future.

10 » A Dream Fulfilled

After making my high school lacrosse team I had a dream to play division I lacrosse. I was recruited by Towson and began my career as a student athlete with Towson State University in 1995. My jersey number was #10. This was extra special because I was able to have the same number through high school and college. I was proud to be #10 and play for the Tigers! ...

10 » A Ten O'Clock Scholar

In 1930's Towson State College did not have dormitories for Baltimore City students. We city students commuted daily on the York Road trolley. When it reached the city line @ Anneslie Road an additional county fare was charged to continue the ride to TSC campus--a mile or two. To avoid the extra cost we city students often chose to walk the rest of the way to school, 15 or 20 minutes. ...

10 » A Ten O'Clock Scholar

In 1930's Towson State College did not have dormitories for Baltimore City students. We city students commuted daily on the York Road trolley. When it reached the city line @ Anneslie Road an additional county fare was charged to continue the ride to TSC campus--a mile or two. To avoid the extra cost we city students often chose to walk the rest of the way to school, 15 or 20 minutes. My Freshman year schedule included an early morning History class led by Miss Lena Van Bibber. Try as I might to be on time for the class, I was often a late arrival. A hundred pairs of eyes followed me in my quest for an empty seat in the large classroom, accompanied by Miss Van Bibber's squeaky voice reciting "A Diller, A Dollar, A Ten O'Clock Scholar; What makes you come so soon? You used to come at ten o'clock, Now you come at noon!" To this day, 76 years later, I can still hear dear Miss Van Bibber's tremulous voice chanting "A Dillar, A Dollar..." to the delight of my punctual classmates. I played clarinet in the school orchestra led by Miss Alma Prickett, who also taught a Music Appreciation class. One beautiful, balmy spring day, I decided that my musical training allowed me to skip music class and spend some time reading (a textbook assignment) on the pleasant, inviting lawn in front of Stephens Hall. Later that day Miss Prickett remarked on my absence from her earlier class. She chuckled at my explanation that the pleasant outdoors won out over the indoor classroom. Her gentle smile told me that she forgave me. I cherish those memories and memories of my classmates: Leslie Dunbar, Harry Russell, Lee McCarriar, John Sheck, Charles Gross, Mary Reindollar, Helen Picek, Josephine Hubbard, Catherine Gray, and the most beautiful girls you ever could see--Marie Parr, Helen Tribull, Helena Townsend, Margaret Well, Betty Stewart. Many may be gone, but none are forgotten.

When I came to Towson State Teachers College in 1951, I was a nervous young girl from the small town of Mountain Lake Park in the western mountains. My assigned roommate on the 6th floor (a walk-up) was also scared. She is Pat Skirven from the small town of Rock Hall on the Eastern Shore. We lived about as far as you could from each other to still be in Maryland. Pat had never seen a mou ...

When I came to Towson State Teachers College in 1951, I was a nervous young girl from the small town of Mountain Lake Park in the western mountains. My assigned roommate on the 6th floor (a walk-up) was also scared. She is Pat Skirven from the small town of Rock Hall on the Eastern Shore. We lived about as far as you could from each other to still be in Maryland. Pat had never seen a mountain, and I had never seen the ocean or a blue crab. We learned a lot from each other and our four 6th floor buddies. Study time in rooms was from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. We had a half hour of REC time and then it was back in our cells. It took us a while to figure out why some other girls went to the library to study. We just thought they were studious, not that they escaped the confines and met BOYS! We moved from the second floor our last two years and into a two room, (three to a room) with a connecting bath. That was 6 girls for one sink, one tub, and one toilet--What Fun. We were in heaven. The six of us are still good friends. We communicate often and get together whenever possible. It was a wonderful and educational experience.
