Fun Facts

  • In 1932, F. Scott Fitzgerald finished Tender is the Night while living at the now-demolished La Paix estate, located just 200 yards south of Towson University. Towson students would frequently see him roaring up York Road in his Stutz Bearcat!
  • In fall 2014, Towson University offered an undergraduate course titled "Blood Lust and the American Dream." Its content focused on representations of vampires in popular media, from literary origins in the late 19th century through to recent incarnations on screen.
