8» Why is 6 afraid of 7?

8 has always been a significant number to me. It's the age I decided what I was going to study. I graduated high school in 2008. This year, it's the floor number of my first apartment, which is .8 miles away from the Towson campus.

5 » We 5

There are so many numbers that do come to mind. 0328 was my post office box at Towson State University. I had dorm rooms in Newell and I had phone numbers for friends and centrex numbers to visit different people. The number 8 bus took me from Towson to downtown, where I could get the Greyhound bus to go see my grandparents in Washington, DC. But #5 wins. I became involved with the ...

There are so many numbers that do come to mind. 0328 was my post office box at Towson State University. I had dorm rooms in Newell and I had phone numbers for friends and centrex numbers to visit different people. The number 8 bus took me from Towson to downtown, where I could get the Greyhound bus to go see my grandparents in Washington, DC. But #5 wins. I became involved with the Jewish Students Association at Towson and remain close friends with that little group of 5 of us. Thanks, Karen Feldman

511 » My 511 Family

In 1993 I lived in Newell Hall with my roommate Wendy Cloughen. We were suite mates with Allyson and Colleen and across the hall lived Teresa, Jill, Jen and Jen. We all got along great and decided to rent an apartment in Towson Run. The 8 of us ended up living in apartment 511 and we have remained close friends until this day. We have amazing memories of living in 511...and we were al ...

511 » My 511 Family

In 1993 I lived in Newell Hall with my roommate Wendy Cloughen. We were suite mates with Allyson and Colleen and across the hall lived Teresa, Jill, Jen and Jen. We all got along great and decided to rent an apartment in Towson Run. The 8 of us ended up living in apartment 511 and we have remained close friends until this day. We have amazing memories of living in 511...and we were always proud of the diversity of the apartment (Wendy and I were Kappa Deltas, Teresa, Jen and Allyson were Zeta Mus, Jen was a Alpha Phi and the other Jen was a gymnast). We got along so well that Allyson ended up marrying my brother. :)

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.

8 » Studio 8

My Towson number is 8, as in Studio 8, the epicenter of the theatre student's world when I attended Towson. It was a big room under the Stephens Hall Auditorium, which served as scene shop and general hang-up. Most of us pretty much lived there. It was a great time to be in theatre at Towson. Theatre was a new program and much smaller than it is now and we were all super-excited abou ...

My Towson number is 8, as in Studio 8, the epicenter of the theatre student's world when I attended Towson. It was a big room under the Stephens Hall Auditorium, which served as scene shop and general hang-up. Most of us pretty much lived there. It was a great time to be in theatre at Towson. Theatre was a new program and much smaller than it is now and we were all super-excited about what we were doing. Many of us went on to long careers in theatre and film. And one, an acting student named Maravene has distinguished herself in university administration.
