Towerlight Archive

The Towerlight Archive is a time line of the LGBTQA's history at Towson University. It exposes old clubs, past discrimination, and exciting change that has made Towson into the open, accepting, and influential college that it has become. The time line is made up of Towerlight articles that have been scanned by the Cook Library Archive and belong to the Archives. Use of these articles without the Archives permission is not condoned.
