It took me 11 years to get a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Management. I was a part-time student working full-time, raising a family, and joined the army to attend basic training and advanced training. I lost a year to a tour in Afghanistan, had a child (born in 2005), and experienced many other life-changing events. All the while, I was taking 1-2 classes at a time. 11- That’s the number I ...

It took me 11 years to get a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Management. I was a part-time student working full-time, raising a family, and joined the army to attend basic training and advanced training. I lost a year to a tour in Afghanistan, had a child (born in 2005), and experienced many other life-changing events. All the while, I was taking 1-2 classes at a time. 11- That’s the number I will remember. Additionally, I support the Veteran’s Center in the Union. I wish it was there when I was a student.

401» Change of Trajectory

There was an episode on the show Community that dealt with parallel universes – the remedial chaos theory. That hilarious (and nerdy) episode made me realize I probably like sci-fi more than I let myself indulge; it comes to mind when I think about what my life would be without 401. Tower D, room 401. I entered college after a high school career of over-committed extracurricular involvement. I was going to reward myself with a year off ... slowly getting involved in student organizations. My RA, Jerry Jones III, would not hear any of it and told me I had to run for building council president. He convinced me, and I got more and more involved in school ... building my confidence levels and guiding me down a path that would cap as SGA president. I love Towson University because I was given an ownership stake; the support system came right alongside to guide me to a sizeable return on my investment. Because of my involvement there, I have stayed connected with the university and now sit on the Alumni Association. I credit a great deal of my post-collegiate success to my school and the experiences and people there. 401 changed my trajectory.
