Troy University Reviews
Troy University is a gem. I can't imagine any other school having the charm and community that you will find here. Your professor knows you by name and it is the perfect size to always see a friend on the quad, but always have someone new to meet. The scholarships are unmatched by any other school I've heard of. I have free tuition and a foundation scholarship on top of that to cover housing. The campus has continued to develop over the past few years with the improved football stadium, beautiful lecture halls for School of Business and College of Education, and new fitness center about to open. There's also plans for more updated buildings and dorms coming over the next couple years. The beauty of the campus is undeniable and we're so lucky to have a Chancellor who cares about the environment for students. I chose Troy over several top 10 state schools beause of the affordability and I would do it again if given the change. Go Trojans!
As an online student attending Troy University I can say that their program is amazing! Not only are the professors understanding and do what they can to quickly answer any questions or worries, but the students involved in each online class are extremely helpful and all work together to help obtain a good grade in the class. In addition, there are a wide range of online classes for every major you are looking for.
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.
