Troy University is different from most institutions of higher learning. Rather than preparing students for jobs, we prepare them for what’s ahead – life – opportunity – surprises. Yes, the future can be unpredictable, but the people who succeed in the years to come will do so because of preparation, planning and drive. These are just a few of the defining characteristics of TROY students.
