College Review What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate? We tend to think of ourselves as the "smart kids". Truman is a place where students embrace their quirks, even if that means they are nerdy. It's okay here. We also call ourselves the "Harvard of the Midwest." Basically, we think of ourselves as people who study. A lot. School generally comes first for most students.
