This blog may seem a little lazy and unoriginal to our loyal readers, and you’re right, it is. But give us a break it’s finals week. We could have thought of something fun and exciting for you guys but we had a lot of stuff to do and to be honest we don’t have any more ideas (KIDDING). Buckle up and lets take a trip down memory lane. Here are the top 10 Towson Tails blogs from this year, according to us, the writers…
10. Sledding Spots
On March 6, 2013 meteorologists were calling for colossal amounts of snow in the Towson area. But we weren’t scared. If anything we were too prepared. We scouted the campus, we took the pictures, and even created our own highly sophisticated algorithm to determine Towson’s top 10 sledding hills. But the snow never came…
We were all disappointed when Tigerfest got cancelled on that fateful Friday. However, unlike some who wallowed in their own pity, we came up with a plan. We’ll never know what you guys did with that $25, but we like to think at least a few Towson gnomes found new homes because of us.
8. Best Tigers
OPPA TYGA STYLE!!!:^) This blog might have seemed like just fun and games, but in reality there was actually a lot of research done. We had to make a trip to the Baltimore Zoo, spent a couple hours in the library, and watched the Tigger Movie six times (okay that was actually just for fun).
After Kevin Ware’s leg injury, no one ever thought that March Madness and food would be mentioned in the same sentence ever again. But look at us now! This blog was monumental because it ended the age old debate about which diner was the best on campus. Congrats P-Tux! Or should we say Feliz Cumpleanos!
First off, shout out to the Hungry Melonheads for our improbable 4th place finish in Towson’s co-ed softball league. This one was so much fun to write because, well, it was so true. We know from experience. We hope you guys found it as relevant to your team as we did.
No blog has been sillier than this one. Starting with a small idea, the story of Teddy Towson and his many failed attempts to finalize a mascot for our university was utter and complete nonsense; which is why we fell in love with it. We expect a statue of Teddy to be erected on campus somewhere in the near future.
4. Burdick Gym
Aww the first countdown blog EVER for Towson Tails! Isn’t it cute? Not only was this blog a huge success with readers, but it gave us the platform to do more and more funny blogs for SAM. If it weren’t for the Burdick Gym post, you guys would not be sitting here reading this blog today.
We’ve still yet to hear from Towson on which one of these they’ve selected to be the official school slogan, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. In all seriousness, this not-so-serious list is one of our favorites just because it contained all the little, yet loveable idiosyncrasies Towson students enjoy poking fun at.
This is the first blog that we wrote as a team (excuse us while we tear up). This post was the epitome of our blog as we were able to combine pop-culture with student life, and it was something that we think students really were able to identify with.
Have any of these worked yet for you guys? Yeah, didn’t think so… The success of this blog wasn’t in the readership, but what happened afterwards. A few days after the blog was posted, several students started tweeting their own lines using #TowsonPickupLines… and then more students did it. And then out of nowhere #TowsonPickupLines was trending in Baltimore!!! We are most proud of this blog because it represents the potential of not only Student Activities, but the potential that the whole university has to come together and be heard.
