Towson University sophomore Tyler Green is a physics major and one of two recipients of the Jess Fisher Pre-Engineering Scholarship in the class of 2019. He has a passion for EDM and DJing, and hopes to one day bridge the two worlds of physics and music in his career. See more in the video below, and read more about Tyler here.
In December 2015, 18-year-old Towson freshman Tyler Green waited with his brother, Eric, at the 9:30 Club in Philadelphia to catch a glimpse of electronic dance music producer and DJ Marshmello.
Having followed Marshmello since the beginning of his career in early 2015, the two brothers were excited to finally see him play.
“To see him play a huge concert at a well-known venue was just awesome,” Green said. “Me and my brother just had the best brotherly moment in disbelief that we were watching it.”
One year later, Green, a sophomore physics major from Cecil County, still has a large interest in the culture surrounding EDM and DJing, and credits his brother for influencing him.
“My brother took up an interest in that probably like four years ago, and then I’d say I caught on around three years ago once he just kind of started blasting the music around the house,” Green said. “I couldn’t avoid it.”
Following the recent election of President-Elect Donald Trump, colleges have seen a rise in the discussion of safe spaces on their campuses.

18-year-old high school senior Jenna Kahn sealed the fold on a white envelope and put it on her desk. She slowly reached for a black Sharpie marker, writing “Mom” in large letters on the front, before placing it in a pile with similarly marked envelopes.
Dressing for the day, Kahn opened her jewelry box, looking for her favorite earrings and necklace. They were not there – she had given her jewelry away, along with many other possessions.
Kahn was preparing to end her life.
“I didn’t want to die,” Kahn said. “No one who is suicidal wants to die. They just want the pain to stop.”
