TROY-- Troy University's freshman orientation, or IMPACT sessions are an exciting experience for new students going to college for the first time.

"I'm really excited."
"I'm trying to get as involved as i can, probably with fraternities."
"I'm learning and getting my education so i can make some money."

Regardless of why they're headed to campus, all students are required to get health screenings.

"Students that are coming in for impact, they have to turn in their immunizations as well as their TB skin test results. If they don't have those things cleared they have to turn those documents into us prior to registration."

"And since impact sessions are bringing a whole new batch of students to the Troy campus, some might wonder if the tb scare from last year is still on everyone's mind."

"Last year i heard some stuff happened."

But Troy officials say they have continued to secure the health safety of students since then.

"I had to get all my shot records up-to-date, I had to get a tb test as well. I think the people here are doing everything they can to keep it under control. I got my TB test, I think everything will be fine. I trust the officials here."

And even though there are no new health safety proceedures being implemented by the university, Reeves says the best plan for fighting deadly diseases on campus is to follow the guidelines that are already in place.

"Well just as we've done in the previous years, as every student that comes in has to come through the health center."

Because keeping our youth healthy is key.
