Life at TU

fall 2014 freshman Transition Program To-Do List



Sometimes there are questions that we don't want to ask our advisers-- like, "Is this a really hard course?" or "What happens if I turn in an assignment late for that chemistry professor?" Wouldn't it be easier to get the lowdown from another student-- someone who's already been through it? At Towson, you can do just that with the HELP program, which provides peer advising so that every last person can get every last question answered. Just stop by the Academic Advising Center to talk with a student academic adviser.

    Finding an On-Campus Job

    As a Towson University student, you have access to a diverse range of on-campus employment opportunities. Work as a peer educator in the Counseling Center, a lifeguard in Campus Recreation Services, a Phonathon caller for the Towson Fund, or even a cashier in the University Store. Start your job search using your Hire@TU account, the Career Center’s online job and internship database. It is important to start your search early as on-campus jobs fill fast. The best times to search are August for the fall term and January for the spring term. You may also want to expand your options by exploring local, off-campus jobs in Hire@TU. Both on- and off-campus employers will be at TU to recruit students at the annual Part-Time and On-Campus Job Fair just prior to the start of the fall semester. Remember, student employment is more than the path to a paycheck; it’s a learning experience to help you become more organized, accept greater job responsibilities, and develop transferable job skills that you can apply to future career positions. Please feel free to drop by the Career Center during Express Hours for a resume review, help with Hire@TU and job search tips.
