Troy Univ. Summer Send-off Parties
Troy University will host Summer Send-off Parties in locations in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle to welcome new students to the Trojan Nation.
Freshmen and incoming students will meet future classmates and learn more about TROY during the events, which are also open to parents, prospective students, alumni and other friends of TROY.
“Summer Send-Offs are our way of celebrating the new class of TROY Trojans by recognizing them in their home areas with their families and friends,” said Tiffany Schmidt, director of enrollment services. “We also invite high school guidance counselors and prospective students to join us at our send-offs. By prospective students attending, they are able to learn more about the opportunities for them at TROY.”
There is no admission charge for the events and food is free to all who RSVP. Nine send-off parties are scheduled, and new students are invited to register for an event in their area.
