Following the first SGA meeting of the year, both Troy Ultimate Frisbee Club and Troy Voice of Justice are officially recognized as clubs.
Troy Ultimate Frisbee Club is not new to the Troy grounds. Emily Gorden, a sophomore global business major from Alabaster, said, “We have been playing pick-up games for years, but this year we decided to become an official club.
“We want to gain recognition on campus and get people to join. Also, we want to participate in more southeast tournaments.”
Gorden recommends that people interested in joining should bring water and a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt. Cleats are preferable, but sneakers are fine.
Troy Ultimate Frisbee Club welcomes people without experience. To learn more about Troy Ultimate Frisbee Club and to find the most recent information and updates, look for the Facebook page titled Troy Ultimate.
Troy Ultimate Frisbee Club meets Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. on the new intramural field next to Trojan Arena.
Troy Voice of Justice is also not completely new to the Troy campus. It is a Christian organization dedicated to ending human trafficking and modern slavery.
Angelica Lewis, a sophomore social work major from Troy, said, “We were originally two separate organizations. We were Stella’s Voice on Campus, and Troy International Justice Mission.”
“We thought it would be a lot easier to combine them because they were both about international trafficking, since Troy was so small.”
Troy Voice of Justice meets every other Thursday. Their next meeting is Sept. 11 in the Trojan Center, room 224, at 6:30 p.m.
This week, a special guest from Moldova will be coming to speak about how Stella’s Voice saved her from the sex trade industry.
New members are welcomed and those who are interested are encouraged to attend.
