Troy University moves downtown
Troy University has moved to downtown Covington and will open its doors at its new Monticello Street location Monday.
The university was previously housed at the former R.L. Cousins High School complex on Geiger Street, but now its 701 students will be learning at the Historic Delaney Hotel just off the square.
“We’re excited about the move; it’s nice to be a part of downtown Cov- ington, particularly in the historic area. It will be nice for students and professors to be able to walk to restaurants and shops around the square,” said Bob Bertram, Troy’s director for North Georgia. “We were treated very well at our previous location, but we just required more accessibility and visibility.”
The new location will have four classrooms, a computer/teaching lab and offices upstairs for administrators. Troy offers courses for both undergraduate students and those seeking to earn their masters. The school has 15 full-time staff.
Troy has been in Covington for eight years and also offers night, weekend and online classes. Bertram said the school’s most popular programs are business and psychology. For more information visit covington.troy.edu.
The school will hold a grand opening ceremony at a later date, and is also planning to add some new programs in the future.
