3 College Senior

Majors: If you can write a check you are in the school. The graduation rate shows what you need to know.

4 College Senior

Majors: If you choose a good major and not some bull crap degree, the department of whatever good major you choose is very helpful with preparation as well as offering opportunities. I enjoy my program because of those reasons.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It was a hassle, they make you verify everything. The past two years experiences has taken me the entire summer to finally receive confirmation of my financial aid. I did get it.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Like I said before, if you are looking for a good time you will find it. Nothing is ever forced upon you. I wouldn't say we have a drug problem of any type on campus.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am an accounting major. We have a very good program with a very good CPA passing rate. There are several CPA firms who recruit directly Troy students. The department is very close with students who really care about your success. The work load and curriculum sucks but it is preparing you best way you could be prepared. Internship opportunities are good.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everybody is either really hot or really not. The gray area people are screwed.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Troy is one of the largest if not largest, international colleges in the world. All international students are required to spend some amount of time at the Troy campus location. Overall I'd say the student body is diverse regarding nationality and beliefs.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Local apartment complexes offer campus bus shuttles.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Troy is just big enough to where if you are looking for a good time you will find it and if you don't want to be bothered that particular night you won't be.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There was one streak of crimes on campus about two years ago where there was a sexual assault off campus and a mugging on campus and break ins on off campus housing. Other than that, it has been relatively safe on campus.

2 College Senior

Facilities: Student athletic facility is very small. Most dorms need to be rebuilt as well as academic buildings.

3 College Senior

Facilities: It is very easy to build relationships with the staff and student body. Family atmosphere.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: We have our typical off the wall restaurants and cheap food chains. About 3 or 4 nice food chain options.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Nothing is really a problem on campus. We did have a breakout of break-ins one time.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If it wasn't for Troy University's campus in Troy there would be nothing in Troy.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge. You don't necessarily have to join a fraternity or sorority to be successful and involved on campus but it helps a great deal. If you aren't greek there's nothing really on campus to keep independents involved or entertained.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There needs to be a clean house in the football department. Everybody in control is complacent of where the program is. The last time Troy went to a bowl game I was a freshman. A good student crowd comes to the games every week but everyone leaves before the game is over because it is usually decided already by halftime who is going to win, and it isn't us.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Going to live off campus next semester

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I actually go to an extension of troy university so I'm not sure about student involvement.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I would have liked to get more help.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It seems really good from the time that I have been in the classes.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I haven't really tried meeting a lot of people.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I plan on doing student teaching. I don't have any concerns on finding a student teaching position.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the program. If I could go back and do it all over again I would. My career goals are teaching elementary education.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I really enjoy troy university and how convenient it is for a working mom.

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!
