I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Troy University thus far. The admissions department was incredibly helpful, as I was a freshman starting 10 years after graduating from high school and had so many questions and concerns. The flexible class schedule and ability to achieve a degree completely online have been extremely beneficial for myself. I would recommend Troy University to anyone! The broad array of different degree majors, flexible and affordable classes coupled with the hands on professors, knowledgeable and friendly staff make for an amazing experience in higher education.
Review Your College
Being a senior at Troy has given me 4 years to learn more about myself and other people more than I thought possible. As an international university, one of the best parts is meeting the students who come from all over the world. Class sizes are so reasonable and professors quickly learn your name and give undivided attention, leading every one of us to success. The campus is also gorgeous year round and football season always has such a great atmosphere, go Trojans!
Very good university. I study computer science and it has a solid foundation. Not only in computer science, but almost in any other major. There is huge diversity on campus, which is why this university is called "The International University of Alabama." There are 500+ international students on campus from all over the world. Very friendly atmosphere as well! Not many parties however, and the city of Troy is very boring. It's actually a very small town, so there is nothing much to do on the weekends rather than stay home with friends or go to a local bar.
