Troy University

Troy University has received the largest award to any four-year institution in the nation by the U.S. Department of Education for student support services.
The Student Support Services Project at TROY will receive more than $4 million over the next five years to provide services to University students who are selected to be a part of the SSS program. Qualifying for participation includes, in part, being classified as a first-generation, low-income and special needs student. Elements of the program have operated for more than 25 years at the University.
“At Troy University, our mission is to help our students achieve success, in the classroom and beyond,” said Dr. Hal Fulmer, Associate Provost and Dean of Undergraduate and First Year Studies. “The awarding of the Student Support Services grant for another five years is a significant recognition of our efforts at student success. The SSS program is making a difference with our students that will have life-long positive results.”
There are more than 550 students on TROY campuses in Troy, Dothan and Montgomery who participate in the program. Retention and graduation rates for these students – all deemed “at-risk” – are at or above the University’s rates for all students, Fulmer said. In many cases, he noted, the selection into this program made the difference in a student’s eventual graduation from Troy University.
“Troy University is committed to meeting its students on the road where they are, in their educational efforts. Programs like Student Support Services provide very specific ways to assist our students who, through no fault of their own, are entering college life with several hurdles already in place. Our Student Support Services staff works to lower these hurdles so that our program’s participants can make progress toward their degree,” he said.
The Student Support Services program offers academic tutoring, assistance in course selection, information about financial aid and economic literacy, resources for transfer students and a host of other services focused on generating student success for the program’s participants.
“SSS is a great program and has increased our students’ persistence and graduation rates by promoting student development through opportunities to grow personally, professionally and academically,” said Mary Griffin, Director of Troy University’s TRIO unit, which includes the Student Support Services program.
The amount awarded was third largest grant for student support services overall in the nation for the upcoming fiscal year, with the two top grant receivers being two-year colleges.

Troy University has been named among the best colleges and universities in the southeastern United States by The Princeton Review.

The designation marks the 11th year in a row TROY has been named to the list that includes only 648 colleges and universities nationwide and 139 colleges and universities in the 12-state southeastern region. These institutions represent about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.

"The most important thing we do at Troy University is serve students," said Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., the University's chancellor. "The fact that we have been recognized every year for more than a decade is a reflection of this commitment to students."

Great school. You get out what you put in! Get involved and this is a special place to make great friendships that will last a lifetime. Only thing holding down this University is the city. The new Publix will be a great step in the right direction, and the square is slowly getting a breath of fresh air. A few more good chain restaurants and this place will have that college feel it deserves.

I was accepted to start in the Fall 2016 semester. Now I was a HUGE prospective student that had full intention to attend UAB, however, I was sold after I took a tour of their beautiful campus. Troy is very student-friendly to all students. It is also a very very VERY diverse university with a fairly large number of international students. So I'm saying all this to say, I'm writing this review before I start school and then I will go back after I start to write a review that actually means something.

At first, I rated Troy 5 out of 5. Now, Troy is 1 out of 5. Why? They screwed me, and a lot of others, over in the long-run. They changed my degree plan RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of my degree. Degree went from Business w/ A Concentration in International Business to BS. General Business degree. Put in other terminology. It's like a Business degree in Accounting being switched to a business degree in General Business. I didn't know the impact that would have until YEARS LATER, and frankly, even the counselors wouldn't have been able to tell me. NO ONE can predict the future. You can speculate, but not predict. If I could go back in time, that's my only regret with Troy. I should have just got an accountant degree. I was an online student. It wasn't offered online. Now, I find myself questioning whether or not to go back for that accountant degree. General Business is NOT a specialization. I don't know why colleges even offer a general business degree. There's alot of BS there. TU will NOT hesitate to F there students over. Keep that in mind while you attend this University. It must be represented in the Student body too. They asked us to stand, and we all kind of looked at each other for a second, and then stood up. Like f this guy (Dr. Hawkins, he sounds good, but again will not hesitate to f the student body over), but because my family's here, I'll stand up.

I loved my time at Troy University! It was a beautiful and safe campus with great diversity in the student body. The clubs and organizations were welcoming and always had a project going--which non-members were always welcome to participate in. Football is big in the south so game day was always a must. One of personal favorite experiences of my time at Troy was watching the band (we have an AMAZING band). My housing (Trojan Village) was fantastic! As with any college, it had its share of issues--parking was a big one--sometimes you would hear uncomfortable stories about the older dorms and every once an a while someone would get something gross at the dining hall but these few slips are to be expected anywhere. As far as academics my classes were small, personal, and most of my teachers were beyond great. I spent most of my degree classes with the same group of students so that was nice too--we bonded very well for post-college networking and friendships. I would choose Troy again over any other college in the nation--this Alma Mater is near and dear to my heart.
