I love Troy University! I have been blessed with great professors who seem to truly care about me and go the extra mile to help me succeed. I love the personal attention I am able to receive because of the size of the classes. I appreciate the fact that the size of the beautiful campus encourages me to walk everywhere. I have enjoyed getting involved on campus. I believe getting involved in an organization or club is important and beneficial. While at Troy, I have made some amazing friendships that I hope will last a lifetime! I have been very pleased with my experience thus far. I am looking forward to the years ahead!

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!
I am a junior here at Troy University. This school makes me feel completely at home. My professors are super helpful, understanding, and even funny. The campus is beautiful. I've met tons of wonderful people here at Troy, while also obtaining my degree. I would highly recommend Troy University to any high school senior! One Troy Forever!
