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 Troy University
Troy University provides great education for its students. The campus is very diverse and well rounded. The experience is one like no other. With all of the activities to get involved with, it's hard to avoid becoming a better person and student. Majority of classes are small and allows students to connect with their professors more. Troy University is a great college to attend!
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!
