Campus & Community Engagement

Campus Engagement

We invite our students to get involved and engaged in campus life. Below are a number of ways for our students to connect and get involved on- and off-campus.

Welcome Back Week

During the first week of every Term, the Phenix City Campus hosts Welcome Back Week activities to welcome students back to class. Student resource tables, snacks, and give-a-ways will be available in the lobby, and TROY faculty and staff will be present to provide assistance and answer any questions.  

Student Appreciation Week

Every year, Troy University faculty and staff show their appreciation for our students during the first week of April at the Phenix City Campus. This event underscores Troy University's core mission to teach and lead our students as we prepare them for the world of work and the world around them. During this week, students will be able to enjoy free food, prizes, and activities.

Special thanks to our partnering businesses and sponsors for the 2019 Student Appreciation Week event: Chattahoochee Brewing Company, Chick-fil-A, Mike and Ed's BBQ, Nancy the Massage Therapist, Papa John's Pizza, Troy Bank & Trust, TSYS, and Whitewater Express.

The 2020 Student Appreciation Week events are scheduled for April 6-9, 2020.


Troy University hosts commencement ceremonies in the spring and fall each year. University staff conduct interviews before commencement to highlight the stories and achievements of some of our graduating students. These interviews may be featured on our Facebook, Instagram, and website. If you would like to be considered for a student interview at your upcoming graduation ceremony, please contact Alex Travis:

Community Engagement

Troy University is dedicated to providing an environment that encourages its students, faculty, staff, and alumni to think broadly and work collabortively. Lifelong learning occurs not only in the classrom, but through experimental opportunities and community participation. Community engagement is at the heart of what we do.

Community and governmental leaders crafted a vision for redeveloping Phenix City’s riverfront into an attractive, stable, and economically viable part of the region. Troy University officials and representatives from Phenix City celebrated the "realization of a grand vision" in July 2015, officially dedicating the University’s new campus location along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. Phase II of construction will involve developing another 44,000 square feet onto the current structure. Faculty, staff, and academic programs at the long-standing original campus location along U.S. Highway 431 will be relocated to the new riverfront location on Whitewater Avenue, transforming  the Phenix City Campus from a 30-acre, five-building operation into a 3-acre, one-building operation. 

Local Community Events

One of our goals at Troy University is to give back to the communities of the Chattahoochee Valley. For a full list of community service opportunities, please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page and follow us on Facebook for the latest local events.
