My Son the Scholar
Several of the people who organize Shore Leave are teachers and have therefore spoken well of Towson University. When Robbie started talking about becoming a teacher, they advised him to check it out.
Last August, we did. It was a week or two before classes began and the Admissions people were unavailable. In fact, no one was willing to help us nor did the people in the Education department get back to Robbie prior to our arrival.
So, we drove around. He liked the look of the campus. It as fine, although Deb and I were concerned it was too large. We read up on the school and decided that he’d be lost there and needed something a bit smaller. But he insisted on applying, making it his “reach” school.
We allowed him this opportunity since, well, you never know.
Now we know. Robbie was accepted to Towson University today.
He’s thrilled and we’re very proud of this accomplishment. He’ll still be attending Central Connecticut State University in the fall (they took him in December so those wheels were set in motion a while ago).
Still, I salute my son!
