    My tour guide said that the school spirit is exceptional, and it is what made her decide to attend. There are many clubs and organizations.

    There are loads of clubs, sports, and activities happening on campus. Troy also has fun stuff to do - I would ask an upperclassman about though. It's also a short bus ride to Albany.

    There is so much to do outside of academics. If you can think of it, there is a club or activity for it and if not then it can be made. I am constantly busy doing things for various clubs.

    There are on-campus movies every Friday and Saturday. There are several parties each weekend - frats take turns throwing parties so they each have a decent amount of people at them. There is also a Playhouse, an improv group, several dance groups, and different musical performances throughout the semester. The bus can be taken to Crossgates Mall, and freshmen halls organize different trips including busses to NYC, or apple/pumpkin picking in the fall.

    If you have a floor/wing that is social, hang out with them! I've made quite a few friends just by hanging out outside my dorm room, or just leaving my door open during the first few weeks of school. If you have a car (or a friend with a car if you are a freshman) you can travel into Albany or go to Colonie Square or the mall. Troy can sometimes be an interesting place to explore with friends, as long as you do it during the daytime.

    There are a surprising amount of frat parties! Troy is also pretty close and not as bad as I initially thought. There are over 200 clubs to join and so many different types of people, so it's easy to make friends (especially with people who have video games and/or Netflix)
