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.”
