Troy University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (40)
Troy is an incredible school. The faculty at Troy are some of the nicest, most helpful people I have ever met. They genuinely care about your success, and will do everything in their power to help you succeed. It is like a family here; people want to help you, even if they barely know you. Troy is a very diverse school- we are Alabama's International University. This means there are always free events on campus hosted by the international students where students are able to learn about other cultures and expand their world view. We may be a small school, but our school spirit is large. Sporting events are always a huge deal, and admission to any sporting event is free to all students, so it's easy to get involved. Troy also gives out many academic scholarships, so it is very affordable to attend. They spend your tuition well here; by providing students with services such as free tutoring, free printing, knowledgable and caring faculty, fun campus events, and gorgeous facilities. Attending Troy not only guarantees you will receive a quality, affordable education, but you will also be given the full college experience. We have it all, from a wide variety of clubs, athletic events, greek life, and more. If I could go back and pick a school all over again, I would still choose Troy.
All and all Troy is a diamond in the rough. Great teachers and students. You can definitely tell this school cares about quality and they are dedicated to making the process of higher learning simple. I have had zero issues with administration and on top of all this the school is starting to boast some positive athletics. The football team is doing great things once again and I could see them upgrade conferences if they continue to do so.
Troy University in three words are: Diverse, Amazing, and Opportunities. When I came to Troy I was amazed by just how Diverse Troy really is. During my time here I have met countless people from multiple countries and was given the opportunity to learn about their cultures and languages. One of my favorite things about Troy is that it may be a small, more traditional campus here in Troy, AL, but it is a global campus as well. I have visited two other Troy Universities in Canada and Spain and was treated like just another member of the Trojan Family. It was amazing! The staff and faculty at Troy go above and beyond at Troy! Chancellor Hawkins and his wife are so involved with the students and truly takes the time to get to know the students they work with and are around. No, they don't know every single student, but they still care about each and everyone. My degree program at Troy thoroughly prepared me for my job and the professors were there for every step of the way through the job search and interview process. I truly cannot say enough great things about Troy University. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!
Troy is a very diversity college. They do have classes for all ranges of lifestyles. They do have amazinh opportunities for military and their imdependences. Easy access to blackboard. Staff is always available especially online. classes are very fluent.
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.
