During the summer months, when many students and their families take a break from school and studies, graduates and their chosen universities prepare for the beginning of freshman year in college. Troy University hosts a series of summer orientation sessions, known as IMPACT, to equip incoming freshmen and their parents with the tools they need for a successful start of their college career.

The university held nine IMPACT sessions between June 12 and July 21. During the sessions, students slept in dorms, ate at Trojan Dining Hall, visited academic departments, and enrolled in their first freshman classes, all while experiencing their initial taste of college life. Students from Butler, Lowndes, and Crenshaw counties attended IMPACT this summer and enrolled as Troy freshmen.
