3» Third Time's A Charm

I have just transferred to Towson University, and I already love it here. Towson is the third college I have attended since graduating from high school in 2010, and I plan on staying here until I finish my degree. Towson's beautiful campus, its excellent Psychology program, and its proximity to Baltimore were the main reasons why I transferred. Since starting in the fall I have found dozens of other reasons to stay. After two schools that were lackluster, I think the third time really is a charm.

3» Expanded Triple

My freshman year here at Towson I was put into an expanded triple in tower B. That's right, there were three people living in a room designed for only two. I was pretty nervous to be living with one new person, let alone two, but I couldn't have had a better freshman experience. I realized that having two roommates wasn't as bad as I thought. While room may have been a little tight, it really just brought us closer and I felt like I had my own little family back at my dorm (suite mates included). While 3 people living in a space may have seemed scary in my head, it was so amazing in reality and I am still close friends with all of those guys today.

3» 3 Towson Activities

I am a person who enjoys leisure, but I also like to keep myself busy with a few activities that I love. By engaging in three on-campus activities, I have learned to make the most out of my stay here at Towson University. This is a new initiative that I have come up with to keep myself active and meet new people. As a sophomore this year, I have joined Towson's Rock Climbing Club and the Towson Music Society. I have yet to take any climbing trips with the RCC, but I can often be found singing and playing guitar in Freedom Square or at Towson Music Society's open-mic nights. The third activity I occupy myself with is an on-campus job. I just started training as a Student Caller for the Towson Fund Phonathon. Working will be a great way to gain experience and a little extra spending money.

3» Making the Connection

As a transfer and commuter student, I was not as connected to TU as I would have liked during my college years. That is why it was such a great opportunity to reconnect with the university later as a member of the Alumni Board of Directors. In fact, my most fulfilling times with TU were the 3 years I served as President of this Board. These years and those since have given me the privilege of being an ambassador for this great institution during some of the most exciting times in its history. They also gave me the joy of connecting with friends old and new who share a love for TU!

3 » Third times the charm

I attended two colleges before settling in at Towson. First I was a student at Northeastern University in Boston for a year before transferring to the University of Maine in Orono where I grew up. There I learned about the National Student Exchange Program. I chose and attended TU with that program and I liked the school so much I transferred! I think I was the only student from Maine in ...

3 » Roommates Forever

I walked into my new dorm room apprehensively. What would my roommates be like; where would they be from? I needn't have worried! We were all from the Eastern Shore. Judy from Princess Anne, Carol from Crisfield, and I was from Easton. We hit it off from the start. Carol married after our sophomore year, but still hung out in our room in our junior year.

In today's tough fiscal environment, we hear countless stories of bright college graduates unable to find jobs. We had a much happier story.

3» Finding my Passion

Shifting from major to major isn't the most cost or time efficient, but when it comes to future happiness and fulfillment of your passion, it does matter. I was very indecisive on which major to pursue. Throughout my career at TU, I always studied under the Kinesiology Department. During my stay with the Athletic Training (1st major) and Physical Education (2nd major) programs, I always found myself taking some extra time roaming around the University Store in the Exercise Science book aisle. Then one day it became clear to me that I was meant to be an Exercise Science Major! Count it… Major # 3!!

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 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.
