The Towson University Honors College is committed to enhancing the relationship between the college and its former students. The Honors College works to keep alumni, parents and friends informed, interested, and active through a variety of programs and activities throughout the year.

The Honors College is committed to identifying meaningful ways to enrich the lives of Honors alumni by providing resources and opportunities that include:

  • Assistance with preparing prestigious scholarship and award applications
  • Cultural and professional programs that foster intellectual growth and lifelong learning
  • Events that strengthen relationships between similarly-motivated peers

Alumni are active in the life of the college by giving through their time, talents and treasure. There are many opportunities to get involved in the TU Honors community such as:

  • Sharing your TU story and success with current Honors students
  • Mentoring current Honors students with similar career aspirations
  • Leadership roles in fundraising
  • Recognition of alumni achievement

The Honors College did so much to truly enhance my opportunities for success after graduation, in addition to building relationships with so many students and staff at Towson. Aside from the superficial benefits of a student lounge and early class registration dates, the Honors College is a dynamic community I'll forever be grateful to be a part of. ”
