“ TROY University acted as my home away from home during my time as an undergraduate student. I miss campus every day and the incredible people I met there, but most of all I miss the interaction between student and faculty. TROY has top tier professors who dedicate their time and knowledge to bettering their students. My experience in the History Department challenged me as a scholar and individual, pushing my intellectual limits and opening my mind to new perspectives while imparting the importance of taking a stand and defending it (as well as correct citations) . Without the History Department, I would not be the woman I am today, ready to take on the world.   ”
