   Towson University is where the Jacksons work, study and
play hard.
   Shelia Jackson, the accounts payable supervisor for the
American Institute of Physics, serves as secretary of the TU
Parent’s Association. Her husband, Aaron, is retired from the
Army. Their son, Trevan, is a junior majoring in graphic art and
a member of TU’s basketball team.
   Sheila values Towson University for its ability to prepare
Trevan for his future endeavors. “I’m pleased that my youngest
child is having positive experiences in Towson’s structured
environment,” she says. “At Towson, Trevan is growing as an
individual, gaining valuable experiences and learning to
communicate in a more mature, adult manner.
   “I truly believe he will be ready to deal with tomorrow’s
world a few steps ahead of the average person because of his
experiences there.”
   Sheila notes that the main reason she joined the TU Parents
Association was to find an outlet that would help her stay
connected to Trevan during his college years. “I want to make
sure that he knows that he can count on his parents during

his life, including college.
   “We know that it’s important for us to give him space to
grow, but being a PA member allows me to familiarize myself

about what's going on in his life,” Sheila adds. “I try to give him
a little insight on things, along with my motherly advice, without coming off too strong or uninformed.
   “Trevan used to be amazed that I could tell him about things going on around campus that he didn't
even know about!” Sheila says with a smile. “But you know how the saying goes–‘knowledge is power.’”
   “I've found that getting involved with the Parents Association has been a great way for me to stay involved in my
student’s life.”

The Art of the Nag
By Carol Vellucci, director, Towson University, The Career Center

Does this conversation seem naggingly familiar?
        Parent: So…how are classes this term?
        Student: Good.
        Parent: How are you doing in your classes?
        Student: OK.
        Parent: Have you decided on a major/internship/career yet?
                                                                                                 Carol J. Vellucci
        Student: Not really.
        Parent: Well, what do you want to do with your life?
        Student: Not sure.
   Getting information from a student may be a struggle, but it’s not easy for a student to provide specific answers to ques-
tions that are too general. Students may wonder how much detail is enough for parents. Do you really want to hear about
the late essay incident or how they finagled a grade change at the last minute by completing an extra-credit project? Or do
you just want to know if they passed the course?
   Parents who arm themselves with a little more information about their student’s college experience can ask more specific
questions and offer more specific help. One key to more meaningful conversations between you and your student is your
ability to be a good “sleuth.” You don’t have to put on your Columbo overcoat and go outside to be a detective—simply travel
as far as your computer and enter the online world of a Towson student. For a start, log on to the sites described below.

www.towson.edu is Towson University’s main Web site. Here you will find newsworthy and timely notices about
campus events. There’s even a webcam outside of Cook Library so you can see what the weather looks like or count how
many students go into the library.

onestop.towson.edu is familiar to all Towson students. Take a quick trip around this site to view class schedules and
see what courses are offered each term—you might discover some surprising and innovative options!

www.towsontigers.com can help you keep up with the Towson athletic teams. Even if you’re not a sports fan, you
can at least sprinkle your conversation with a few athletic references. It’s an impressive parent who knows the score!

http://store.yahoo.com/ustore/ leads to the university store’s online catalog. Purchase Johnny Unitas
sweatshirts, Towson University apparel and gifts, and have them shipped directly to your student—or yourself!

By going where your student goes, you’ll be better equipped to understand the challenges and opportunities of university
life and offer relevant suggestions.

Wouldn’t a conversation like the following surprise your student?
    Parent: Have you decided on a major/career/internship yet?
    Student: Not really.
    Parent: I was just surfing onestop.towson.edu and noticed that six sections of the Personal Life and Career Planning class
            are offered next term. Do you think a class like that might help you make some decisions?
    Student: That might help. I’ll check it out.
    Parent: By the way, I went online and bought us matching sweatshirts from the University Store so we could wear them
            to the rock concert on campus this weekend.
    Student: Now, Mom, that’s going too far!

Developing Students Physically and Professionally:
Benefits of Campus Recreation Programs

  C
           ampus recreation programs nationwide are being recognized not only for their efforts in engaging students in
           recreation and fitness type activities, but also for developing habits and skills necessary for a successful life after
           college. Campus recreation programs are best known for their fitness offerings, wellness classes and facilities,
organized recreational sport teams and leagues, adventure pursuits, informal play, and organized club sport activities. Some
may not know that campus recreation programs also offer opportunities that assist students in developing critical and
analytical thinking, job-related skills, effective interaction with others, and a deepened sense of self. Campus Recreation
Services is committed to educating individuals to lead healthy, fulfilling lives by providing quality experiences and varied
opportunities for participation.

Top 10 Reasons to Get Involved with CRS
   On-campus activities have been proven to help students
learn and feel more connected to academic and student life.
These benefits are often associated with students’ likelihood
to continue working toward their degree. The following are
what students say are the top 10 benefits of participating in
campus recreation programs:
10. It’s an important part of their learning experience.
9. Teaches team-building skills.
8. It’s an important part of college social life.
7. Improves interaction with diverse sets of people.

THE STUDENT AMBASSADOR ASSOCIATION
By Stephanie Michael, treasurer, Student Ambassador Association

  If you’ve ever visited Towson University for a leisurely tour, informative open house, or Destination Towson, then
you’ve encountered one of Towson University’s Student Ambassadors. Student ambassadors present a real view of
Towson University to the community at large.
  Ambassadors provide tours and other informational events to prospective students and their families, taking visitors
on 90-minute tours three times daily Monday through Thursday and twice daily on Fridays and Saturdays. Last year,
approximately 14,000 prospective students and their families toured Towson University.
  “I think the tour promotes TU like a movie trailer promotes a movie,” says Soroush Memarsadeghi, Student
Ambassador Association (SAA) president. “We give students a preview so that they’ll want to come back and watch the
whole thing.”
   The SAA, a division of the Towson
University Undergraduate Marketing
Department, has 80 members, including a
student-run executive board.
   Being an ambassador has its responsibilities.
After being accepted into the program, new and
experienced ambassadors must complete




                                                         10 £
training sessions each term. Student ambas-
sadors are chosen for their candor, knowledge
of the campus and desire to work with other
students.
   There are many benefits to being part of
SAA. It’s a wonderful way to meet TU students,
show off social skills, and improve public-
speaking abilities, and it looks impressive on a
résumé. In addition, ambassadors who are
active and fulfill their requirements are
compensated through a grant at the end of each
term. Ambassadors must possess and maintain
a cumulative 2.5 GPA.
  Senior ambassador Dave Pepose says, “I love
meeting people who tell me that my tour
convinced them to come to Towson. Having                Student Ambassador’s participate in community service efforts. Ambassadors
that kind of an impact on my university and             made over 350 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a local soup kitchen.

people’s lives is awesome.”
  Towson University students passionate about Towson and interested in sharing their college experience with others
are encouraged to apply for an ambassador position.
