We hope that everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day holiday and took the opportunity to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country. Memorial Day is often considered to be the unofficial start of summer. At TROY, summer generally brings a lot of people to our campuses for various camps and workshops. We invite you to check out the opportunities offered by the University this summer by visiting www.troy.edu/camps.
