It is a fun beautiful and safe campus with great diversity in the student body. The clubs and organizations are welcoming and always have a project going--which non-members are always welcome to participate in. Football is big in the south so game day is always a must. One of personal favorite experiences of my time at Troy was watching the band (we have an AMAZING band). My housing (Trojan Village) was fantastic! As with any college, it has its share of issues--parking is a big one--sometimes you will hear uncomfortable stories about the older dorms and every once an a while someone would get something gross at the dining hall but these few slips are to be expected anywhere. As far as academics my classes are small, personal, and most of my teachers are beyond great.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Troy. The teachers were amazing and very well educated. Troy is near downtown which is a prime spot for the cutest boutiques, the best pizza, and the coolest concerts. Troy takes pride in their campus and it shows from the landscaping to the cultural park. There are so many types of students at Troy and it is something special to see when we all come together at the greatest university on Earth!
The experience of Troy University is awesome! The teachers are wonderful, helpful, and understanding. I have heard a lot of great things about Troy and they are true. The student life is awesome and the diversity is great. No one is out of place including the students international and online students. I'm ecstatic to have my Bachelors of Science in ASL. I'm glad I made the right choice!
