Towson University ready for Homecoming week with events for students, faculty, staff,
alumni and community members!
There are many different aspects to the Towson University experience: signing up for
the Big Event, eating at Susquehanna, hanging out at the Beach, and dancing the night
away at TigerFest.
“TU Road Trip” is the theme for Towson University’s 2016 Homecoming festivities, combining
two of the best experiences of college: homecoming and road trips.
Homecoming Week 2016 lasts from Oct. 16 until Oct. 22, and the great events planned
make it easy to remember, no matter where life may take a Tiger, all roads lead back
to Towson University.
“I’m excited to welcome the TU community back home to our beautiful campus for my
first Towson University Homecoming,” said university President Kim Schatzel. “We have
a lot of exciting events planned for the week that will allow Towson University to
truly show off our Tiger Pride!”
