Towson Tigers Take The Odyssey

Digital publishing through The Odyssey is coming to Towson.

Towson Tigers Take The Odyssey

Towson University offers endless opportunities for campus involvement, with a great Honors College, a thriving Greek community, award-winning athletics and performing arts, SGA and a club or group for every interest.

Now, we're taking it one step further! We've created a campus team with The Odyssey, giving Tigers the opportunity to be creative, get involved and publish ideas about college, sports, news, lifestyle and everything in between.

As the new editor in chief, I am so excited and thankful for the opportunity to work with talented Towson students who are just as dedicated to launching The Odyssey as I am. Editor in chief is a hectic job, and launching our team in one week hasn't been easy, but it has been rewarding. Even with such short time frame, the Towson Odyssey team has pulled it off, but here's how the week went from the Editor in Chief perspective.

Getting to work with other writers who are passionate about writing and our school? Yes, please. I am excited, motivated,and maybe a little too confident. This should be easy, and I CAN DO ANYTHING.

It's all starting to sink in. Recruit a team of writers? Hire and interview? Edit the first set of articles and digitally publish them in one week? I'm overwhelmed just thinking about it.

Time to stop talking about doing this, and actually start doing it. Applications are rolling in with hilarious, smart and insightful writing samples, and we're actually getting started!

If you're the editor in chief, people will most likely ask you questions, and sometimes, you just won't know the answer. Starting The Odyssey at Towson has been a learning process for all of us, but I'm still a little (or more) confused. Why did I ever think I knew everything?

In just four short days, things are coming together! We have a fantastic team of writers, a great contributing editor and an amazing multimedia director and social media director. These people are the best. These people are the BEST.


Editing. All the editing. My eyes hurt from looking at the computer. My fingers are numb from typing. T-minus one day until publishing, and we couldn't be more excited.

The first week of any job can be rough, but the writers at Towson have put together their own hilarious, smart and original articles in just a week. I am incredibly thankful to be working with such great people, and I am so proud of how much we've accomplished in seven days.

This is only the beginning, and I can't wait to see what we can accomplish over the next year!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
