Towson University requires ALL students to meet with their assigned advisor before they will be able to register for courses for the Fall 2012 semester.   To fulfill these advising requirements, you should follow the steps below:

1.  Schedule and have a meeting with your assigned faculty advisor BEFORE your assigned registration date in April 2012. 

§ The meeting is necessary in order for your advisor to remove the advising flag that will prevent you from registering.  If you do not meet in-person with your faculty advisor, you will not be able to register.

§ Most advisors will meet with students throughout the semester to provide the mandatory advising.  There will also be a more intense advising period in late March, early April 2012.

2.  Before your meeting with your assigned faculty advisor, prepare the advising form associated with your college catalog year.  Advising forms can be obtained and downloaded by going to the College of Business and Economics Advising/Forms web pageNO faculty advisor will meet with you if you do not prepare the advising form before the meeting.

3.  Use PeopleSoft to obtain your transcript and transfer records in order to prepare the advising form for your college catalog year.  

4.  Use your assigned Towson University email in order to access your academic records in PeopleSoft.

Fulbright Scholar in Vietnam - January to August 2004

During the Spring 2004 Semester, I was a Fulbright Scholar in Vietnam.  During my time in Vietnam, I posted descriptive updates and pictures on my experiences in Vietnam.  I found Vietnamese people to be very hospitable, clever, energetic, and hard working.  Da Nang is a great city with many modern amenities, and it offers an interesting experience in driving around on a motorcycle.   If you are interested in my time in Vietnam, you may click on the link below to access the updates and pictures.


Vietnam Fulbright Experience

My Fulbright position was in the Department of Business Administration in the College of Economics and Business Administration at the University of Da Nang.  I taught two courses, one in Business Strategy and the second in Entrepreneurship.  The following links will take you to PowerPoint slides and documents (English and Vietnamese language versions) for the Business Strategy and Entrepreneurship courses that I taught in the Department of Business Administration.
