Funnywoman Amy Schumer may have graced the halls of Towson University, but to the 18,000 undergraduates and nearly 3,500 graduate students that call it home, getting the most out of this public institution, located in the quaint Maryland town of the same name, is serious business. Towson has a long-standing reputation for producing the brightest and most prepared teachers in the state; since its founding in 1866, it has also expanded to incorporate quality educational programs via colleges in business and economics, fine arts, health, liberal arts, and science and mathematics. Feeling green? Become a part of Towson’s environmental responsibility initiatives, including the dining program’s “Trayless Tuesdays.” Needing exercise? Burdick Hall is undergoing an extensive expansion that will provide the Towson Tigers with increased space and modern recreational facilities. Finally, Towson proves its commitment to a well-rounded collegiate experience with every commencement: its African-American student athletes hold the distinction of highest graduation rate among all Division I public universities in the country. Come to Maryland for the culture, stay to root for the black and gold!
