Senior Editorial: Finding friends, unexpected home

By: Ashley Beall, Staff Videographer

I won’t lie to you, I never actually wanted to come to Towson. High-school me was against the university for whatever reason I don’t remember. Four years later, I am so glad I did.

In my experience at The Towerlight alone, I’ve gained skills, friends and a ridiculous collection of ponies that I will have for a lifetime.

I’ve taken on many roles here, including every aspect of the video section you can imagine, to being a proofreader.

I even had my own column for a while.

I’ve never thought of myself as much of a writer, but I’m so glad I had the opportunity here to try it out.
From my first experience in the office until 5 a.m. to some hilarious office pranks, I honestly cannot imagine my Towson experience without this place.

I’ve met some interesting people throughout my time here.

Shamus has been my bearded sage guiding me to the final boss — graduation.

Devorah is the tag-team partner I can summon whenever I need a break.

Not to mention the countless others that have made this journey so memorable.

Cliché yearbook-esque writing aside, I’m going to miss this place. It was exciting and terrifying and incredible and yet somehow so perfect.

And because I couldn’t end on any other note but with the amazing lyrics of Darren Criss, “This must be how it feels to have a home.”
