Student Activities is the central hub for special events, services and resources devoted to enriching the student experience. Located in the University Union, we are the place to go for students looking to get involved outside of the classroom.

We are committed to preparing our students to become well-rounded and actively engaged graduates of Towson University. Our department offers a wide array of educational, cultural, social, and recreational programming. We offer experiences and opportunities within the areas of campus programming, leadership development, and student organization support. We focus our efforts to foster academic success and personal growth, provide new and diverse opportunities, connect students with supportive role models and create positive, fun-filled memories.
