Troy is exactly what you make it, some professors are great, some are n ot. They do their best to support military tudents through a unique staff (if military), but sometimes you inherintly have to work with TA/Financial Assistance Staff, whom through my last 6 years with Troy (Of which I am beginning Graduate Work) you cannot find quick resolution. My wife on the other hand (Working her Undergrad at Troy, previous military), is having a hard time, and the school counsellors she uses are not even remotely the same quality. Her instructors (For the most part) show no leniancy to the fact that we are a military family and have, for the last 8 years, been stationed at remote locations (Marshall Islands, Guam, etc). This is unacceptable for post-secondary education in which the purpose is an education and the delivery is via Book-Code, with next to no interaction with staff. Mandatory usage of Books through their store is an absolute scam; We are students... books are not "Add-on" content to tuition. If you want to charge for the books and lab, then the teachers need to teach the book, not some online labwork which is occasionally reviewed.
Caution! To any soldiers on active duty if you are thinking about attending a school Troy Univ is not the one you want to attend. I was a soldier in Ft Benning for a few years and I enrolled then dropped my classes due to my crazy training schedule. I thought I dropped it per my guidance counselor BUT I was wrong. Years later I'm going for my VA loan and what comes up deep in my credit check?? A debt due to this institution for $1500, here I am years later and I'm just hearing about this debt now. I was charged for classes I never started, let alone purchased a book for. They reviewed my issue and it doesn't matter that I dropped it with my GC or that I'm a veteran trying to purchase a home to situate my family before a deployment. I'm still being forced to pay for a class I dropped, again too any soldiers/veterans looking to do classes online take your FTA else where these people just want that money. Good luck to all my fellow service members serving and veterans seeking to further their educations. I will be vocal about this until every soldier/veteran is aware of this for their profit organization.
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.
