4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my college but I do wish it was a little closer to home... 3 hours is a little too far.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed going to school at Troy. I just wish financial aid was easier to qualify for. Overall it is a great school.

Overall Experience: It's an okay school but it's mostly known around here for the partying that does on. I am in the nursing school here, and it is by the the best program that the school offers. Great teachers. Needs to build a parking deck or get more parking at least. Some older buildings need renovated.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had many wonderful experiences at this school from meeting new professors and interacting with them to being more involved on campus and meeting new people. I would choose this school if i could do it all over again because this school has opened up many different opportunities for me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far it's a well organized school. I haven't had any problems with financial aid, register, nor any of the staff. I think the small campus feel makes it unique and it would also be the reason I would recommend this school to a friend. The only concern I have is if I have to transfer I'm not sure if the credit hours are the same since they are on a term system. I would choose this school again because I feel like they truly care about you as a student and the success of your career.

Overall Experience: I enjoy this school, my adviser is very helpful and helps me decide on what classes I need. They also have classes set up to help the military students stationed on different bases.

Overall Experience: Troy is amazing. It is the right size for a student to get the college experience but also not to get lost in the crowd. The teaching staff is good and I am trully happy where I chose to go.

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.

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!
