Towson loses a recruitment tool with cancellation of soccer, baseball

March 12, 2013

In keeping with national trends, 60 percent more women than men enroll at Towson University. Graduation rates for women versus men are similar. It wasn't that long ago that universities were tripping over themselves to increase the enrollment and graduation of women.

At a time when universities retain and graduate fewer men, baseball and soccer teams are excellent recruitment opportunities and incentives toward graduation ("Towson president decides to cut baseball, men's soccer," March 8). And let's not forget the state's concerns with "brain drain." How many young men will seek those educational opportunities outside of Towson and Maryland?
