Have you seen our newest TU music video, the TU Anthem?! We’re so proud of Ambassador Stephen and the entire Ambassador video crew who created this masterpiece! If this video doesn’t get you excited about Towson, we don’t know what will! #RepresentForTigerTown
MEET THE AMBASSADORS
Name: Adam Mease
Major: Computer Science
Hometown: Elkridge, MD
Favorite place to study: Paws because it has plenty of space where students can hang out between classes
Favorite Towson fact: Towson offers kayaking lessons on the pool…not sure why but that seems awesome
Best thing to eat on campus: Anything from Susquehanna, because they have everything you could ever want to eat
On his transition to Towson as a transfer student: “Towson made the process very simple and easy. They went through step by step what needed to be done with an easy to follow to-do list. Having the two transfer sessions at the start of the year also helped in the process of making Towson feel like home.”
Why did you choose to come to Towson? “I came from a big school, and knew that I wanted to go somewhere that had a bit smaller feel. Towson was able to offer that, on top of having many different fields I could go into once I decided on a major. The location was also a plus, as it was close to home, which allowed me to commute to school while I got my feet back under me from changing schools.”
Towson student group Active Minds hosted its annual event “Send Silence Packing” on campus today. Hundreds of bags were scattered on the Beach in front of Cook Library to commemorate the 1,100 college students whose lives are claimed by suicide each year in the U.S. Active Minds encourages students to share stories of loved ones who have committed suicide, giving a “face” to those lost each year. Those messages can be written on a piece of paper and placed on top of the bags.

UPTOWN TOWSON: Towson Town Center
The Towson Town Center, a beautiful four floor shopping mall, is just a short walk up York Road from campus. The mall is the perfect place to find a new outfit for a Friday night, pick up a last-minute birthday present for your grandma, or just hang out with friends. The mall features about 300 stores including Anthropologie, Vera Bradley, and Yankee Candle, and plenty of great places to eat like PF Chang’s, Bahama Breeze, and Chick-Fil-A. Towson students love how convenient the mall’s location is relative to campus and its selection of offerings. Whether you love to shop or simply want to get what you need quickly, the Towson Town Center is the place to go!
Here’s what the ambassadors have to say about this uptown favorite:
“The mall is a collection of every store you’ve ever been to in your life!”
“Gotta go every weekend! I mean, it has everything from Cheesecake Factory to Bulid-A-Bear.” –Shelby B.
“Towson Town Center is so much fun to go to and it is so close to campus! My favorite place to shop is Forever 21 and Nordstrom Rack, but I also love the Nordstrom café! I love going there with friends, but sometimes I also go there to pick up lunch because the food is so good!!” –Lauren L.
“The best thing about the mall is the 2nd floor—Forever 21 and H&M right across from each other!” –Monique C.
“It’s awesome. Best mall around.” –Eric S. and Taylor S.
