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.

Troy University has a very diverse student body, which includes a good amount of foreign students who come here to continue their educations. Many of the international students come here for all four years, but Troy also promotes a program where foreign exchange students come to study at the University for a semester. In some of the study abroad programs offered, a foreign student will come here for a semester, and a Troy student will go to that foreign country for a semester.

If you’re interested in going out into the world to experience new cultures, Troy offers several study abroad programs. There are also programs and events on campus that promote diversity and the understanding of other cultures. For example, there is a Chinese festival held annually to inform other students about the Chinese culture.
