Troy University has been named among the best colleges and universities in the southern United States by The Princeton Review for the 19th straight year.
TROY was one of only 109 colleges and universities to receive the designation in the 10-state southern region. In all, The Princeton Review recognized 630 colleges and universities in seven zones – Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Northeast, South, Southwest, West and International.
“The most important thing we do at Troy University is serve our students,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “I believe it is our student-first philosophy and the commitment to preparing our students to be successful on the global stage that has been the foundation for our consistent recognition by The Princeton Review.”
A leading tutoring, test preparation and college admissions services company, The Princeton Review has been listing colleges and universities annually in various categories for 32 years.
TROY’s inclusion is the result of a survey that asks students to rate their schools in several areas and report on their experiences. Areas included: academics/administration, campus life, fellow students and their own experiences. Surveys are conducted on campus and via The Princeton Review website, at which students have the option of completing a secure survey online.
TROY has long demonstrated a commitment to offering high-quality academic programs at an affordable price, both in-class and online. Earlier this year, several of the University’s online programs were recognized by U.S. News & World Report for quality and affordability, and TROY was recognized by Abound, a college guidance system for degree-seeking adults, as one of the Top 100 Online Colleges nationally, one of the Best Colleges for Adults and one of the best colleges for Military and Veterans. In addition, TROY earned the 2023-2024 Military Friendly School designation from G.I. Jobs magazine, receiving the organization’s highest gold ranking.
