Coming from a large city, TROY has allowed me to experience what a small town that is devoted to its university is like. I have gained relationships that could not be formed in a big city. Being a part of a team created a second family that makes TROY feel like a home-away-from-home. Being from the West Coast and coming to the South has taught me values that I will bring back home with me and carry for the rest of my life. TROY is unlike any other university because it focuses on me personally and is shaping me into a better person.
