My number is 5262011 meaning 5/26/2011. That is the day that I graduated from Towson University. I had some good times and a few rough times but that day by far trumped all the rough ones.

My number is 5262011 meaning 5/26/2011. That is the day that I graduated from Towson University. I had some good times and a few rough times but that day by far trumped all the rough ones. I worked for 7 years to graduate from college after going to a community college and while working full-time as a plumber realized that I wanted to go back to school and get a degree in History. Professor Koot was by far the best professor I had. I loved his way of teaching and how he made his point to his students.

I consider 332011 to be my number because March 3, 2011, is an important date for me. In the Fall of 2010, I advanced from being a senator on the Student Government Association (SGA), and president of the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) my sophomore year to becoming the Director of Diversity Outreach for the SGA in my junior year... Needless to say I was very busy between various meetings, events, and campus involvement. As the 2011 spring semester got rolling, I was honored to be the first student recipient of the President's Diversity Award for my efforts in making Towson University a more inclusive and welcoming campus. It is something I am very proud of and will remember forever when I look back on my years as a Towson Tiger.

11» The story of 11

My TU number is 11. This number has a lot of significance. When I played sports in high school my number was always 11. I graduated in 2011 from high school and begin my first year of college. When I moved in first semester, I lived on the 11th floor of the Towers. 11 is probably also the number of times I wanted to change my major from Accounting! I think there are many more ways that the number 11 will impact my life in the future!

2006, 2011 » What a long strange trip its been

After I received my GED at the age of 17 I enrolled in the local community college. I worked full time and went to school part time. I traveled around going to different community colleges in Virginia, Maine, and Maryland. By the time I had received my associate’s degree I knew I couldn’t end my journey towards receiving a higher education. I finally enrolled in the undergraduate English ...

2006, 2011 » What a long strange trip its been

After I received my GED at the age of 17 I enrolled in the local community college. I worked full time and went to school part time. I traveled around going to different community colleges in Virginia, Maine, and Maryland. By the time I had received my associate’s degree I knew I couldn’t end my journey towards receiving a higher education. I finally enrolled in the undergraduate English Studies program at Towson University. I enrolled too late to get into the fall semester and was worried I would delay finishing college even further. I went to Stevenson University for a semester but knew Towson was the place for me. I started classes that spring and fell in love with the program. I worked as hard as I could and in a year and a half I received a BS in English Studies with a minor in Literature. What a long strange trip it has been but it was all worth it.

111111» Back To Basics

While I earned my degree, I also spent 4.5 years with the University Residence Government (URG). The URG office was my home and the members were my family. My involvement in the organization allowed me to travel around the country and represent the Towson University Resident population in the largest student run organization in the world (National Association for College and University Residence Halls - NACURH). I was given the opportunity to serve as the Central Atlantic Regional (CAACURH) Conference Chair in 2011 and brought the Regional Conference to Towson. With the help of my co-chair, adviser, and conference team, I hosted 425 delegates on 11/11/11 at Back to Basics: CAACURH 2011 Boot Camp. This event is my biggest accomplishment at Towson and defined my career as an Event's Manager.

828 » There's a God after All

The number 828 represents August 2, 2008. On this date I was rushed to the ER for dyspnea. At the hospital I found out my lung had a hole in it. Also, doctors thought I had leukemia because there was an abnormal rise in my white blood cells. After numerous tests and hours of isolation, the results for leukemia were negative (just allergies). Sadly, my lung was still malfunctioning. Long ...

828 » There's a God after All

The number 828 represents August 2, 2008. On this date I was rushed to the ER for dyspnea. At the hospital I found out my lung had a hole in it. Also, doctors thought I had leukemia because there was an abnormal rise in my white blood cells. After numerous tests and hours of isolation, the results for leukemia were negative (just allergies). Sadly, my lung was still malfunctioning. Long story short, because of my health issue, I was set back a year in college. Despite all the disappointments, I was able to walk for graduation on January 7, 2012. Earning my Bachelor’s degree in Cell and Molecular Biology at Towson University was the best thing that ever happened to me. Despite the pain, cries, disappointment, doubts, etc. it was worth it all, because I still had hope. I always told myself there's light at the end of the tunnel and every disappointment is a blessing.
