Campus Life

International Programs is an integral part of an international student’s life at Troy University. We understand some of the unique challenges facing international students and seek to be a resource and advocate for each student. The department works to provide daily support for academic success, social integration and crisis management. International Student Advisors are available during the week during business hours providing immigration services and personal support. Every student is also provided an academic advisor in their discipline to guide them through their program of studies.

 

Trips and Events

Troy University has around 900 international students from over 60 countries. To ensure a successful experience, students are encouraged to take advantage of a variety of programs and activities that promote student learning and development. Annual events organized by the Center for International Programs to showcase the international students include:

  • 3 for $30 (four regional trips per semester)
  • Parade of Flags (during pre-game of football game)
  • Top 10 Flag Recognition
  • International Education Week
  • Rotary Appreciation Luncheon

The international clubs plan dinner theater bringing high quality cultural performances to the campus community.

Trips

The Center organizes several trips each year around the country. These trips give students an opportunity to explore American culture and experience the local flavor of the region. Trips in the past have been organized to New York City, Chicago, Disney World, Atlanta, the Florida beaches, Alabama recreational areas, special sporting events, and more.

Mentor Program

International Programs has several outreach programs to promote international understanding within Troy and the surrounding communities. We sponsor the mentor program that provides a bridge between Americans and international students to share their values and traditions. Students are given a chance to interact with normal activities of American families and friends.
