Campus Housing: There is no campus housing.

Scholarships: The financial aid process usually is not an issue however if students do not receive enough financial aid to cover the year, they should be offered work study. They should also be informed of scholarships not suggested to just take out private loans.

Guys & Girls: Our campus has a diverse student body. From styles to nationalities to interests.

College Senior

Greek Life: I have not seen very many Greek students on campus nor do I see forums or activities hosted by them. There is no housing on the Montgomery campus. I don't think Greek life affects the social atmosphere on campus and I don't believe they're viewed any different than non-Greek students.

Health & Safety: Campus police are always patrolling our campus on carts, in cars and bikes. I think for the most part our campus is safe. They will even escort you to your car if requested.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: My school is located downtown Montgomery. There are a few different restaurants but not very many. The cost is not too bad but could get expensive if dinning in daily. They are walking distance from the school. Overall quality is okay.

5 College Senior

Majors: It is great being in the Nursing program here at Troy University. Yes I enjoy it because I know I am working toward my passion and once I complete the program I will have a great career. Troy University's nursing program because they not only offer book work to be completed but hands on training to better equip students once they enter the hospital etc. I'm excited.

College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship yet. I plan to do clinical settings in the practicum this fall semester.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Troy University Montgomery campus is very student friendly especially when it comes to studying and researching. The library has study rooms you can check into if working on a group project and the Rosa Parks museum is located on the first floor. The student union is also great for leisure time.

College Senior

Campus Dining: I have not experienced campus dining.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Overall Montgomery Alabama is okay. As far as attractions and events, they are about average. Occasionally there are concerts, comedy shows and plays. Depending where you live safety is average. Shopping is not so great being there's only one indoor mall and one outdoor. There is a minor league baseball team and also college sports near to enjoy. Local attitude towards students is average.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: A bit crowded here and there. The fitness center should be bigger, I go off campus because of that. Don't hear of many campus activities and events. The campus itself is beautiful though.

Off-Campus Dining: If you need a quick snack or are too late to eat at the dining hall..then off campus dining is your best bet! I don't eat anything at fast food restaurants because that is just my preference. I do go with my friends to get their food sometimes and it is convenient, easy to eat, just not the best choice.

Off-Campus Housing: There are not many things available off campus. Sure there are plenty of different complexes. However, if they are cheap, they are usually lesser quality. We are college students, our last concern should be having to worry about whether we can pay the next months rent or not. They should provide reasonable prices and build a bunch of complexes that will give us what we need.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: i really like how diverse our campus is! I grew up in europe so I have been all over the place. I have visited many countries and learned something new about each culture I have encountered. It's nice to see an international student on campus and be able to speak to them about their country. I like how not everyone is the same, so I don't feel so different for the majority.

Campus Dining: I usually just get a salad when I go to the dining hall, maybe a pasta dish every once in a while. However, there are just too many 'unhealthy' options for us. If I need the brain power to study and to go to class all day, I want an option that will give me that energy, not make me want to crash in the middle of class. The cleanliness of the dining hall dishes need to be taken into consideration, I am even afraid to use the cups.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have no yet had a internship

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet applied for my specific program, only 1 year to go!

Overall Experience: I really do like my school. It's small enough for me, but not too small. The people I have met so far are nice, and I haven't had any trouble yet. However, I do wish I went to a school that had more to do around the city area!

Health & Safety: I have heard of a few break ins, shootings, and drug deals throughout the last year. That makes me a little more concerned about the safety of my belongings. However, I do feel fairly safe on campus!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I extremely disliked the dorm I was living in last year! It was dirty, the rooms were tiny, and the cost was just overly priced. Some people had no respect for the fact that they had other people living in the hallways, but it did give me an opportunity to meet new people whom I found to be great!

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I grew up in Europe, of course to me nothing else can compare! However, even in Troy I still go to different cities to enjoy a night out because there really aren't many places to go and enjoy some drinks, otherwise it's just overcrowded.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I noticed that many students like to wear athletic clothes and sandals! Most typical southern guys I see wear the jeans with boots, and girls wear the baggy shirts and shorts. But whatever makes them most comfortable I guess that's okay! I grew up always looking approachable. You never know when someone important is visiting the school and wants to talk to you…would they think different whether you were wearing baggy clothes or semi-professional attire?

Athletics: I don't hear enough talk about the upcoming games and performances. There isn't enough "school spirit" that goes around before a game that makes me interested enough to want to go to them. I usually go to a few, football the most, but I feel like the other sports are just "there" when football isn't.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I really enjoyed all the classes I've had so far! The professors taught well, followed the curriculum, and I actually learned something from going to their class. I haven't had one so far that has been rude or a bad professor in general. The registration process is a bit hectic, having to go all the way to your advisor just so they can take a look at your paper for 2 minutes is a pain, especially when so many people need to sign up. I feel like there should be other "quiet" areas to study other than that library or the occasional classroom being empty. All in all, the academic atmosphere is great at this school!

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The overall experience at Troy is wonderful. There is not much to during the spring semester because football season is over, but the local cities have activities for students. Montgomery has several sit-down restaurants, malls, and cultural activities, and Dothan has its annual Peanut Festival and a large selection of shops to choose from, including a mall. There are also activities that take place on campus, also such as comedy shows, recitals, and theater performances.

The University does a lot to help its students succeed academically, as well. Professors are always willing to help whenever possible, and many students even develop relationships with their professors that later help with references and jobs. Overall, Troy is a great school, and anyone would enjoy their experience here!
