Towson University seniors have the option of taking the Tiger Commencement Pledge when they graduate:
For current Towson University students:
Take responsibility for myself and the choices I make.
Imagine success and work hard every day to achieve my academic goals.
Give my best in showing respect for myself and others.
Engage in my community to make a difference in the lives of others.
Remember to be active in building a welcoming community.
Towson University students take the Tiger Pledge upon entering Towson University during New Student Convocation and are challenged to live up to the ideals of the pledge throughout their academic careers. Learn more about the Tiger Pledge:
Take responsibility for the social and environmental consequences of my decisions. Inspire others by my example. Grow personally, professionally, ethically, and intellectually. Embrace opportunities for community involvement. Represent TU proudly.
All graduating seniors are invited to take the Tiger Commencement Pledge and wear a symbolic black and gold ribbon on Graduation Day. Pledge cards, ribbons and materials are passed out during cap and gown pick up periods for both winter and spring commencement ceremonies. Tiger Commencement Pledge scrolls are available for graduating students to sign at various locations during fall and spring semesters.
