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.
I used the Troy University distance campuses. This allowed me to work full time and take night and weekend classes to finish my degree. The professors were knowledgeable and had real world experience.
I obtained my MSHRM in 2011. While there were a few professors that I would not recommend, overall, I was pleased with the quality of the faculty and staff at the Atlanta location. All of my classes were in-person and that worked very well for me and my busy schedule. Honestly, I would not say that the coursework was extremely rigorous, but I did learn quite a bit that I was able to use in my job as an HR Manager/Business Partner. Most of the professors were able to relate very well to the real-world and most of the coursework was relevant to working in the profession. The coursework is more meaningful if you are in an HR role or similar role already. Unfortunately, many of the students were just present in the class, but really could not provide much value to the discussion for lack of knowledge and experience. I am planning on pursuing my MBA at the school soon.
Moving constantly gave me the opportunity to attend many different colleges. Some were better than others but Troy stood head and shoulders above the rest. At first I attributed it to the fact that I just happened to sign up for classes taught by awesome professors and not to the college itsef. That changed when I became hospitalized in the middle of a term. I was hospitalized for a long time and could not finish my classes. Troy went out of their way to make exceptions to several policies. They saved me thousands of dollars that they were not obligated to do. Both professors and administrators not only checked on me but also my family. When I was ready to go back to school they were very supportive. You expect support from family and friends when you're in crisis but I was stunned by the reaction from my school. The people at Troy will forever hold a special place in my heart.
