Stories Within the State Lines

"Troy University is located in a beautiful small town where the modern industrial civilization has not been impacted. The school spirit is warmhearted, full of culture and history, and I am so proud that I could be one of the Trojans. The professors at TROY are so personal. In the class, they teach us devotedly. Out of class, they always answer our problems gladly and carefully. They are like a bright lamp enlightening our life journey.

- Ke from China (MBA, Information Systems)

"Troy University is full of people with great smiles and open hearts. I never felt lonely or homesick. Being active on campus and having friends from all over the world makes me a well-rounded individual. I felt fortunate to be a part of Troy University. Go Trojans!"

- Alina from Turkmenistan (BS, Accounting)
