TROY — Troy University will be hosting a series of Summer Send-Off Parties this month at venues around the state and in northwest Florida designed to welcome new students to the TROY family.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students are invited to attend and meet future classmates, learn more about the University and kick off their TROY experience. Alumni, parents, prospective students and other friends of the University are invited to take part as well.

“The Summer Send-Off Parties will be a great way for students and parents to meet other TROY families from their area and to make connections with classmates, staff and alumni," said Tara Morelock, Coordinator for Special Events at TROY.

There is no admission charge for the events and food is free to all who RSVP ahead of time.
