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.

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.

There is a variety of wonderful facilities for students to use on Troy's campus. The academic facilities include the Eldridge Center for Learning and the Lurleen B. Wallace Library. Eldridge has a writing center to assist students with their writing, and the Natural Science Center offers tutoring for students in math and science-related subjects.

Home football games are played in the Veterans Memorial Stadium, and basketball games, pep rallies, and graduation ceremonies are held in the Trojan Arena. There is also a track, soccer, and tennis complex. The University has two theaters where live performances are held: the Trojan Center Theater and the Claudia Crosby Theater. There is also a fitness center located in the Trojan Center that is fairly new.
