Troy University Needs to Realize That There Are More Students Than Greek Life And SGA

"In unity, there is strength." - Riverdale


At Troy University, there are three groups present on campus: those that are Greek, those that are a part of the Student Government Association, and those that are don't affiliate with either.

During my search for a college to attend, one of my stipulations was that I didn't want Greek life to be the only dominant force on campus (along with things such as cost, location, majors offered etcetera). Troy University boasts a Greek population of only 20% and this number intrigued me because, at many schools, it seems to be a higher percentage of students. However, after attending Troy University for a little over a semester now, I doubt this number because every time I turn around, another student is telling me about what sorority they are a member of, or about what fraternity they are a member of on campus.

And, admittedly, prior to the first SGA election, I was pretty clueless as to what SGA was because SGA was not a big deal at my high school. To be more truthful, I didn't understand the full extent of SGA until now while the SGA presidential race is happening.

Greek life isn't bad and those that are a part of Greek life aren't bad. The SGA isn't bad and those that are a member of the SGA aren't bad. It just feels like Greek life and SGA goes hand-in-hand for those that are independent and makes being involved on campus that much harder.

Those who ran for SGA will promote the fact they are a part of a sorority or fraternity, and thus, represent the student body; however, if only 20% of Troy's campus is Greek, how is this true? Something like this is what I mean. There's a lack of awareness that there is more to this campus than SGA and Greek life.

There just needs to be more attention brought to the lack of awareness of those who aren't Greek nor SGA.

For example, during Homecoming, independent organizations participated with the frats and sororities in events such as chalk the quad and making banners. Not one independent organization was promoted for chalk the quad, and I know, as a member of an independent organization, we had to ask to be recognized for winning a place for our banner. I am grateful that we were at least recognized but it shouldn't feel like fighting a war to be recognized alongside Greek organizations for completing the same activities.

This is an open plea to the new SGA President -- bring students together, all students because that is what will make Troy University a stronger college.

Why I Paint

I found a love for painting, for it takes me back to the places I have been before. I am able to develop my artistic abilities, and create the elegance of natural wonders in our environment.


Rain or shine, and whenever I have the time, you can always find me painting (if I'm not taking a nap). Ever since I was little I always loved arts and crafts, drawing and painting, just never had the time for it due to a rigorous schedule filled with four hour swim practices, and the time left devoted to school work. As a retired division one collegiate athlete, I have much more time to add new things a part of my schedule that I enjoy doing.

Painting is great for a number of reasons. I can paint whatever I want whenever I want. I personally enjoy painting very much, no matter how "good" or "bad" my painting may look. And it gives me time to not be on my phone, unless I am referring to a photo to help guide me. We all have our gadgets, and we all spend SO much time on them, painting gives me that break from staring at a screen for so long. It gives me peace, and let's me explore my artistic abilities. It takes me back to the places I have been to, and dream of going there again.

Painting or any other type of art work is a great way to communicate the importance of something, for example something like land conservation. Painting can inspire land conservation, of areas that are threatened by the development of drilling and mining industries. Artists recognize how important it is to preserve these natural beauties, and thereby create these wonders in their works of art.

Majority of my paintings consist of places I have been before. From rainbow fields of wildflowers to the detailed and intricate mountain ranges, I have the chance to relive my memories through my paint brushes, paints, and canvas.
