Reeves said the City is always excited to welcome the new international students.“The international students have an economic impact on the city,” he said. “Many of them come here to set up housekeeping because you can only bring so much on a plane. And, they are contributing members of our community throughout the time they are here.”Reeves said, however, the economic impact of the international students is secondary to their cultural impact.“We live in a global economy but here in rural South Alabama, we don’t have many opportunities to interact with those from other countries, except through Troy University’s international program,” he said. “These students bring the world to Troy. Their presence is an educational experience for all of us. We welcome them to Troy and look forward to their being a part of our community.” Email the author Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

The experiences that you have at Troy University will change your lives.” Book Nook to reopen Sponsored Content Print Article By Jaine Treadwell Latest Storieslast_img read more
