requirements or want to check on your progress toward graduation.

Advisers are available to answer those questions and help you
prepare to meet with your faculty adviser. Just stop by the Academic
Advising Center in the Lecture Hall to talk with a Student Academic
Adviser—no appointment necessary.

Smoke-Free Campus Policy
Towson University is the first four-year university in Maryland to
be entirely smoke-free. All buildings and exterior grounds owned
or operated by Towson University are designated as smoke-free,
including athletic stadiums and practice fields, parking garages
and open spaces.
Towson’s smoke-free policy aims to reduce the health risks
associated with exposure to second-hand smoke and ensure that
all members of the campus community have access to clean air.
For those who wish to quit, the Dowell Health Center provides
free smoking assessments and smoking cessation and education
classes in partnership with the Baltimore County Department of
Health. Free nicotine replacement therapies are also available
through the Dowell Health Center.
