Brian J. DeFilippis

Recently, I had the pleasure of welcoming a number of our new students and their families at orientation. That opportunity allowed me to reflect on my first six months at Towson University and to look forward to the start of a new academic year.

I offered the following advice to the newest members of our university community: fully immerse yourself in the Towson University experience. I also had the opportunity to highlight the many ways in which private philanthropy enhances this terrific institution and provides support for our many academic, co-curricular, athletic and cultural programs.

Thank you to all of the alumni and friends who support Towson University. Everyone in our community feels the impact of your philanthropy.

“Everyone in our community feels the impact of your philanthropy.”

During the coming year, I hope that you, our alumni and friends, will also take advantage of the myriad ways to reconnect with the university. Support our Tigers at athletic competitions; enjoy the artistic and cultural talents of our faculty, staff and students; mentor a student or attend an alumni event. We look forward to seeing many more alumni and friends return to Towson University in the coming months.
