Motto: As Representatives of Troy University's Freshman Class, We Commit to Excellence in Leadership through Service, Enthusiasm, and Trojan Pride!


What is Freshman Forum?

Freshman Forum is the freshman branch of the Student Government Association. We are here to help freshmen leaders get connected on the TROY campus and in the community, and begin making lifelong friendships. It is made up of about 40 freshmen and 2 directors.  The members of Freshman Forum are chosen through an application and interview process. After being, selected the new members will go on a retreat to learn parliamentary procedure, leadership skills, and team work. It also provides the chance for you to get to know your colleagues.


Just like any other organization, the Freshman Forum is up of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasure, and other executive officers.  The directors are there to help the executive officers and, members get everything done on your agenda and to be mentors to you.


During the fall and spring semesters the new members will be placed into different committees:

  • Leadership Conference CommitteePlans the High School Leadership Conference


Finance Committee:

  • Handles all money issues: Fundraising and Donations


Publicity Committee:

  • In charge of all advertising; flyers, banners, sidewalk chalk.
    Also creates an annual scrapbook for Freshman Forum


Campus Involvement Committee:

  • Connects Freshman Forum to the campus


Community Service Committee:

  • Plans all service projects


Each committee has its' own responsibilities, but they come together to achieve the overall goals that Freshman Forum sets. Some of the annual events sponsored by Freshman Forum are: Fall and Spring Sports Appreciation Day, "Excellence in Leadership" Conference, Higher Education Day, International Thanksgiving Dinner, Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Ceremony, and more. We encourage that the new members bring ideas that would promote Trojan pride!
