TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — The transition from high school to college can be hard for incoming students. That’s when Troy University’s Welcome Week committee steps in.
After a fun and hot summer, students begin to ease into their college routine. To help with that process, the Student Government Association (SGA) has created an event called Welcome Week.
“Welcome Week is the first two weeks of school,” said Welcome Week Advisor Sadaris Williams. “It’s a chance for us to welcome our students back, to host event host different type of events, to show students what we have to offer here at TROY.”
A variety of events will take place around campus during Welcome Week to give students a chance to see what Troy University is all about.
“We’ll have a silent disco, escape night, a late night glow-in-the-dark yoga,” Williams explained. “Our religious organizations also host a number of different events, too, during Welcome Week.”
This year’s theme is TROY 101, which is a spin-off of the Nickelodeon sitcom Zoey 101.
“They wanted people to come back and learn about the fundamentals of TROY and just be ready for their new reality of being here at Troy University,” Williams told TrojanVision.
Vice President of Campus Affairs Betsy Bennett wants students to attend Welcome Week events to gain a sense of having a home away from home.
“Going to these events definitely can get you more comfortable to the campus,” Bennett said. “Getting to meet new students that are in the same position as you really helps make the Troy Campus feel a lot more like a family environment.”
