TROY again ranked among best in the South

September 14, 2016

Two national organizations have once again placed Troy University at the forefront of universities in the South.

For the 12th year, The Princeton Review named TROY to its “Best of the Southeast” list that includes just 139 colleges or universities. Additionally, U.S. News and World Report named the University to its “Best Colleges” Regional University-South ranking.

“The most important thing we do at Troy University is serve students,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., the University’s chancellor. “The fact that we have been recognized every year for more than a decade by Princeton Review — and for nearly a decade by U.S. News — is a reflection of this commitment to students.”

Dr. Hawkins said that “outside validation by those looking in on TROY is a positive litmus test of the quality of a Troy University diploma.”

“Any time an independent news organization recognizes what our students, faculty and staff achieve, it’s a validation of job well done,” he said. “U.S. News and World Report recognizing TROY confirms what we and our alumni have known for years: Troy University prepares students to be successful on the world’s stage.”

Both organizations rank schools on a number of factors including student feedback, admissions standards, quality of life on campus, graduation rates and job placements post commencement.
