Why Choose TU?
“TU is in the perfect location. Within walking distance from the campus is the mall, an amazing movie theater, and plenty of fun restaurants. As a student, I would try a new restaurant each month. TU is also near the Inner Harbor which is full of exciting things to do but also home to plenty of internship and job opportunities.”Meet Our Admissions Team
