3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I like my school and if I had to, I probably would choose it again because of all the friends i've made and good times i've had. On the other hand, in order for me to do that, some things would have to change. For example, the administrative building is absolutely horrible, they never know what's going on, and half the time they don't seem as if they even want to help you. You ask a question and they give you every answer except the one you are looking for, so if that was changed or they got some new people, then yes, I would choose it all over again. That has been my only bad experience at my school so far.

Off-Campus Dining: There are several options and cost is reasonable. Most offer student discounts. Very few stay open late, most close by 9 or 10, sometimes 11 on weekends, but that is rare.

3 College Senior

Administration: Security is not often seen, except when cruising the parking lots looking for parking violations or parked in a cluster on one of the remote lots. I've not had issues, but several friends have called for security and it took far larger than the situation warranted. It's not out of control, but the perception is there that they are just "doing a job" and not truly invested in making sure the campus is place of safety for everyone.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments nearest the campus are either expensive or in need of repair. Many older homes have been converted into apartment further away from campus. Some are decent, others are falling apart; most are in less than ideal neighborhoods. The lower-cost off-campus housing tends to attract these who want the freedom to party at home, which can be an issue for those living there that prefer to not party during the week.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Do your own research. Very little is explained. Ask questions, but be prepared to be blown off or treated as a "problem-child" if you aren't easily "handled." Preference is given to incoming freshmen. As a senior, several of my friends have had their aid dropped for reasons that don't make sense.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: All are more expensive than local restaurants.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, I live about a mile away. The campus housing is close and convenient to classes. The older buildings are being demolished and newer, but more expensive, ones are being built. There is not enough housing for all the students and the available off-campus housing is either atrocious or expensive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not an athlete. So, I don't often deal with any of the facilities associated with sports. The gym is nice and is free to all students. The indoor swimming pool is also open to all students for free! Just pay attention to pool and swim team hours.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's not bad if you have a car. There are plenty of places to find good food. However, it's either a good walk or car ride to get anywhere decent.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party much, but there are parties for people that like that sort of thing.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I'm glad that they have polices in order to keep students safe; however, only being able to have 1 visitor is really annoying. The strict noise violation policies are great on days that you want to study and things like that; however, it's really easy to forget if you have a group of friends over.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received many scholarships to cover my expenses. The money went to the school, and I received the extra money. I have not had and issues with Finacial aid. The staff is always willing to answer my questions and make the process easier for me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food on campus should not be a problem if you don't go crazy spending your flex points! The Trojan Center has a great variety of food to choose from. It also has pretty convent hours during the week days. SAGA does has good and bad days. The biggest complaints I have are that it serves the same food all the time, doesn't have many tasty healthy options, and it closes early. Moe's and Boar's head have great food, but it's more expensive. You have to be careful to balance your flex points if you like to eat at these places often. Overall, the good situation is okay. However, it is hard to find food on campus on the weekends and later in the day.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus was a great opportunity for me. The RAs and housing staff were always nice and eager to assist me if I needed it. I lived in the all female dorm named Hamil hall, which is the "worst" dorm on campus. You get what you pay for though. This is the cheapest dorm option on campus. The rooms are small and shared between 2 people, but there is a ton of storage space. There are 2 communal bathrooms shared between each hall; however, they are pretty well kept and clean. The way the dorm is set up causes you to go outside and explore the college. I am ever grateful for this. I have made many good friends. You also get to know the people you are living with. By the end of the year, I knew all the girls living on my floor by name, and knew at least half of the girls living in the rest of the building. The only complaint I have with living on campus has to be the lack of enough housing for upper class men, especially females. finding a place on campus after freshman year is really hard and the wait list fills up quick.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It isn't great but it isn't horrible. Troy is just a small town with lots of crime. It can be scary and the only cheap places to live are dumps with high crime. You have to pay more than your tuition for a semester for one semester of living. Ridiculous.

Off-Campus Dining: We do not have very many options. I know this is a small town, but we like to eat! Never really good service, and the same four foods get really old. Always go to Montgomery or Dothan.

Administration: Giving tickets for parking constantly, but not being concerned for students' fun and well-being is frustrating. They make more money off tickets than tuition.

Party Scene: Some of it is kind of lame, but if you're looking for fun, someone has the place to do it.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't used a lot of financial aid until recently. The process is kind of a pain. Something always goes wrong. Every semester for me. However, it mostly always works out.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The stores on campus are high!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I recommend living on campus for the first year or two. Not current on how easy it is to get housing anymore. Not really cheap but it is convenient.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Not very descriptive, in regards to military and financial aid assistance.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
