Helen did more than bring about the Trojan War. She also founded Troy University. Okay, not really…she only attended it.
Helen of Troy
Paris had pretty high standards when it came to the ladies, and that is why he would marry no one less than the godly Helen of Troy. She was a strong, independent, intellectual, beautiful graduate of Troy University, and when Paris abducted her she was well equipped with the academic prowess to beat him up mentally. Since she also happened to be the kicker on the Trojan’s stellar football team, she could also beat him up physically with her powerful legs. Helen of Troy did not gain her divinity simply by being the daughter of Zeus; rather, it was the Bachelor’s degree she earned from Troy that gave her the power to do anything. With seven undergraduate colleges to choose from and four graduate schools, Helen was free to develop the passion of her choosing with professors and guidance counselors to help her along the way. Going to Troy prepared her for what lay ahead both in life and career, but it did not teach her how to find an off-campus apartment. That’s why I’m here!

Troy Gone Wild
Students find that Troy is an exciting place (especially during football season), and there are lots of fun things to do and see. The Continental Theatre has dollar movies for students twice a month and campus hosts festivals like Oktoberfest and Spring Fling. At night things get wild... Tailgating parties are an essential part of the university experience at Troy, but when football season ends, students host house and apartment parties, or check out the scene at fraternities. Though there are not many bars in the vicinity, college is college—you make your own fun.

Is Montgomery a family friendly town?
It all depends on what you consider family-friendly, although most people seem to have similar opinions on this matter. Parents are always looking for low crime rates, and Montgomery does not have one. In fact, Montgomery's crime rate is quite a bit higher than average when compared to other cities of similar population size, as well as all cities. The second most important factor, in most cases, is high-quality public education. Unfortunately, Montgomery falls short on that account as well. Students are served by the Montgomery County School District, which was rated better than only 22.5 percent of school districts in Alabama and 9.6 percent of school districts in the country.
