Pizza is the prime food for any college student. It is friendly to vegetarians (even vegans when it’s purchased at the right location), can be delivered right to your room and is sharable with your friends. There is always a discussion over who in Towson has the best pizza for anyone to order, which is why The Towerlight held a pizza showdown, to find out who has the best pie. We brought in a panel of five judges: Skyler Jenkins, a student and captain of the TU Kronum Club, Provost Timothy Chandler, Vice President for Student Affairs Deb Moriarty, Assistant Vice President for Student Diversity Victor Collins […]

It’s safe to say West stood out at the rain-soaked Pro Day, where 27 NFL scouts from 22 teams came out to watch him and other former Tigers at Johnny Unitas Stadium. His wardrobe made sure all eyes would be on him, if they weren’t already. And that’s exactly what the past three months have been about for the leading rushing in Towson history: Getting attention.

Competitive jump rope has been a passion for sophomore Kristen Bork but she didn’t know that she would be able to use her talent to enrich the lives of other young children in Baltimore. “When I was little I immediately fell in love with jump roping,”  integrated elementary and special education major Bork said. “It was definitely my favorite thing to do and then the coolest part about teaching jump rope is seeing that look that I had when I was little and when I am teaching kids a lot of times they get the same one.
