585» PO Box 585

My number is my old post office box at TSU. Back in 1984, I was one of only a few out of state students, being from NJ. So, I would always rush to my mailbox to see if I had letters and packages from my family and boyfriend back in New Jersey.

5» The Towerlight: Ken Fey

I chose five, because it took me five years to graduate from TSU with a degree in mass comm. This was mainly due to the fact that I spent 30 plus hours a week, working for the best college newspaper in the world. I usually took 12-13 units a semester, so I could invest quality time at the paper. It was a great place to work and learn. The friendships formed were priceless. It is difficult to put into words about the bond that I formed with my co-workers from 1988-1993. I enjoyed various roles over those five years, from sports editor to photo editor to circulation manager to various reporter positions. Mike Raymond, Sean Brohawn, Mark Goetz, John Stefancik, Jonathan Oleisky, Lorraine Myers, Dan Richter, Lisa Goldberg, Gail, Lisa, Jen, Marybeth, Loren Harris..just to name a few...Gunga Din!!! Great, great college memories that I can usually recall with ease. In that office, I learned more about life, friendships, teamwork, and successes/failures than anywhere else. Thanks. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

8» The Lady In Red

"The Lady In Red" (to which Oriole great Rick Dempsey fondly refers) is the since-razed Memorial Stadium. When I left Chicago and arrived at Towson State's campus on August 26, 1983, I didn't know a soul. I did, however, know that the No. 8 bus would take me down York Rd. to 34th and Greenmount, where the Stadium Lounge was just a quick pre-game stop before Orioles baseball. They won, 9-0 that night. I still have my ticket stub. It was the start of a telling chapter in which I became forever hooked on Baltimore and its every element. I am proud to live here today and I am never leaving. Ever.

5589 » My Outstanding Experience

I graduated from Annapolis High School in 1951, but could not get into Towson State because I was not in the top 1/3 of my class. My dad was the Director of Admission at Johns Hopkins, so he found me a girl’s junior college in NJ, Centenary. After my freshman year there, I was able to transfer to Towson.

I graduated from Annapolis High School in 1951, but could not get into Towson State because I was not in the top 1/3 of my class. My dad was the Director of Admission at Johns Hopkins, so he found me a girl’s junior college in NJ, Centenary. After my freshman year there, I was able to transfer to Towson. I really wanted to be a teacher. My graduation class was 1955, but I got married in 1954 and moved away. In 1988, I returned to Towson part-time to finish my degree. I spent the spring of 1989 student teaching in England. My two assignments were in New Malden, Surrey and Cumner Oxford. I loved every minute of it and I also made the Dean’s List before my Dad died that fall!! What an outstanding experience Towson afforded me!!
