415 » Off-Campus Housing

I could not get into a dorm in my Freshman year, so I lived off-campus at 415 Register Ave. I roomed with Judy Cordery (now Diver). We ate most of our meals in the college cafeteria, and I actually liked the food. We had the best time riding the bus to school, hanging out in the little off-campus room in the basement of Newell Hall, shopping at Hussler's and Stewart's, and sometimes c ...

We ate most of our meals in the college cafeteria, and I actually liked the food. We had the best time riding the bus to school, hanging out in the little off-campus room in the basement of Newell Hall, shopping at Hussler's and Stewart's, and sometimes carpooling in "The Heap" with Gloria Grundman (Hess). It was my best year at Towson.

1965 » my kids are the best

I graduated Towson in 1978 and immediately opened Clearlight Surf and Sport in Fenwick Island, Delaware. I expanded into Ocean City, Maryland, next to the Green Turtle. Later, I opened 3 additional locations in Reisterstown, Parkville and Fells Point. Eventually, I sold the business to actually use my teaching degree and taught for Baltimore City Schools at Lemmel Middle School. In the ...

Eventually, I sold the business to actually use my teaching degree and taught for Baltimore City Schools at Lemmel Middle School. In the past few years, I have substituted at Mervo High School and Booker T. Washington Middle School. As you can see, I love kids. I have 3 great children of my own, including 2 grandchildren. I am a classic car nut and still race cars and motorcycles.

313 » Newell 313

I loved living on the hall in Newell in my sophomore year with 2 great roommates – Carolyn Hendrix and Cindy Teater. We had great times and many adventures together. That year, I started working in the cafeteria taking numbers for breakfast. My roommates would stay up late and I had to roll out of bed each morning to get to work by 6:30 AM. Oh, Boy!! What a challenge!! I loved the colleg ...

What a challenge!! I loved the college dorm experience with the diversity and many opportunities for friendly interactions.

210 » The phone never stops ringing

When I was a freshman many, many years ago, my first dorm was Newell Hall. Ward and West Halls were for the guys. When you entered the main door of Newell Hall you saw a beautiful staircase leading to the second floor. If you turned right you came to the first dorm room on your right and the telephone booth on your left. That dorm room #210 was mine. As freshman we took turns being ...

210 » The phone never stops ringing

When I was a freshman many, many years ago, my first dorm was Newell Hall. Ward and West Halls were for the guys. When you entered the main door of Newell Hall you saw a beautiful staircase leading to the second floor. If you turned right you came to the first dorm room on your right and the telephone booth on your left. That dorm room #210 was mine. As freshman we took turns being on "phone duty", but every time the phone rang, I heard it. When no one was on duty I usually answered it. At the time it was a pain, but now I think about it fondly. We had curfews, also, and if you weren't at least in the lobby (the one that led into the cafeteria) when midnight came you were in big trouble. Things change but memories only get better.
