Troy University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
My experience at Troy University exceeded my expectations for the most part. The professors were always available and made sure to inform classes of office hours, email addresses and many even gave students their personal cell phone numbers. Curriculum varies by professor as does classroom attendance and test types. Parking is an issue, I suggest that commuters take early classes to avoid searching for parking for hours. My unpleasant experiences were not with the professors or curriculum. The employees of the campus restaurants are horrible! They are rude and I was actually yelled at by an employee of Boar's Head, she is still employed on campus. She yelled at several students and I know that complaints were made and her actions were uncalled for. I returned to the business months later and she is still there and still treating students very badly. The employees at Herbs Place are also notoriously rude to students. My next complaint is the financial aid office. Please do not let this be your first experience on campus! Just take that as a warning! Last complaint, the campus grounds are pristine! The classrooms look as though they haven't been cleaned in years!
If your a student looking for a small traditional campus then Troy University is for you. I enjoyed having small class sizes because the instructors know you by name. If you enjoy learning about different cultures get to know the international students on campus. I've met students from Belgium, Switzerland, England, Japan and Brazil just to name a few. If your sports fan Troy has Division one ncaa sports teams. Most students attend the football games in the fall. Troy is known for teacher education, psychology, nursing and distance education programs. I was a psychology major at Troy. My overall experience in the program was great. If you put in the effort to learn the material in class and go to your instructors office hours it will payoff. The psychology program faculty were very helpful if I needed help on a paper or assignment. The faculty challenges you to think beyond your textbook. If your interested in Troy University take a visit and see if its the right fit for you. Troy University is located in Troy, Alabama south of Montgomery.
Troy University has a great program. The online resources are top notch and the staff at their facilities were extremely helpful. if you want to earn your degree fully online or hybrid, this is the school for you. I was able to finish my degree while working full time thanks to the flexibility of the curriculum and the understanding and caring faculty.
Attending Troy University is one of the best decisions I have ever made. While it will be much easier if your parents managed to save up for your college tuition, for the most part, the school's financial aid office will help you so that you can finish your degree.
Troy University's Bachelor of Social Work Program was perfect for students with children. I attended the Phoenix City campus and it truly helped me to be able to raise my daughter and continue school full time. Many of my classes were hybrid, either on campus or online. The classes that were on campus were normally after 5:00 pm, and it was awesome for me because my family didn't get off work until then and were able to watch my daughter. I am currently attending University of New England's Graduate Social Work Program. Without Troy University, this wouldn't be possible.
I transferred into Troy online from the University of North Texas which has close to 40,000 undergrads, and I received better one on one instruction from classes with over 100 students by the professors at UNT than Troy. Troy professors are inaccessible and don't respond to emails very quickly, which can be quite frustrating when that is your only point of contact. I also will graduate later from Troy than I would have my university that I transferred in from because I listened to my advisor and took the classes she told me to take only to find out later that I would need to take a term off because one core class in my degree plan is only offered once a year. When I brought this up to the head of the degree program he asked me why I didn't take the class when it was offered and dismissed the fact that I had been mislead by my advisor whom I told multiple times when I planned on graduating. I transferred to Troy so I could work full time because it was hard to schedule classes around a work schedule at a large school, especially upper division courses. The bright spot at Troy is the financial aid office, they are quick to respond and fix issues. I would not recommend this school to other people, I would rather have more student loan debt in exchange for better instruction and an education with higher earning value.
I currently attend Troy through online classes. My wife also went to Troy and completed her Bachelors in Criminal Justice while we were stationed in Hawaii. They have been extremely supportive and a majority of my Professors have been more then happy to answer questions when called or emailed. I enjoy the format of the school, all the learning is done through Blackboard. It is a lock step learning as in every week you are given assignments and some classes will not open the assignments up until the week they are expected to be done. I have never had a problem with my financial aid or scheduling classes.
Troy University has so much to offer students of a variety of different backgrounds. The instructors are very knowledgeable and will not hesitate to give individualized instruction if the need arises. For me, it was truly a home away from home. Since graduating in 2015, I find myself reminiscing on all the good times with friends and colleagues. Troy's small town environment is something that most universities cannot match and that is a huge reason why Troy was and is an amazing university to call home.
First of all, Troy University does have parking issues, and it is located in a small town, however you know this going in. If you are going to school to get an education then Troy is the place for you, if you are going to party, then this is not the University for you.
Troy university is a nice campus with friendly instructors that want the best for there students. Troy has a wide variety of majors to suit the needs of many career fields. The dorms and cafeteria are nice and the classes are challenging yet rewarding to help each student learn the most about what they want to be in life.
