Troy University faculty and staff will show their appreciation for students in April during the University’s fifth annual Student Appreciation Day.
Next week, students will be able to enjoy free food, prizes and activities at all four of TROY’s campuses in Alabama and support centers throughout the United States.
“Great universities stir great emotions, and at the heart of the enterprise you find students,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “In fact, the most important thing we do at Troy University is serve those students. This year marks our fifth celebration of Student Appreciation Day, and my thanks are extended to our Faculty Senate for organizing this important event – an event which underscores our core mission to teach and lead our students as we prepare them for the world of work and the world around them.”
On the Troy Campus, Student Appreciation Day activities are planned for April 3, but each campus and location holds its own celebration and dates may vary. A full schedule of events is available online.
The Dothan Campus will observe Student Appreciation Day on April 2, while the Montgomery Campus will celebrate students on April 3. Events will be held throughout the first week of April on the Phenix City Campus.
As a part of Student Appreciation Day, an essay contest with the theme “Making a Difference” will be held through April 1. The contest is open to all TROY students, full- or part-time in good academic standings. Winning entries will receive a textbook scholarship for use at Barnes & Noble. Prizes are provided by Barnes & Noble and the Troy University Alumni Association. An application for the essay contest can be accessed online.
