Reaching new heights

We’re pleased to share this amazing story of Towson students abroad in Peru last summer, not just studying abroad but researching abroad.

During International Education Week here at TU you will have the opportunity to hear from both professor and students on their experience in Peru on Thursday, November 20 at 4:30 p.m. in Burdick Hall 113. Join us tomorrow in this celebration of travel and scholarship!
