I think it’s a very diverse school. You get to meet and interact with so many different types of people without traveling out the state. We are encouraged as students and as young adults to do our best and strive for more. The staff is always there when we need them, and it’s just a great place to be.
I was scared to study at a community college until i actually started going there. Now college is about going there and studying so in my opinion this college is good for studying but nothing other than that. Community and the facilities (library) is not good enough considering it's a community college and many people go there. But we have to think of it as a place where students go who want to make future, educational institutions such as community colleges are not there to make your future, they are there like stepping stones towards your future. Now its up to you whether you want to use those stepping stones or not.
I think this college is really concerned about its students. All the staff help their students and encourage them to use all the centers are available to us. The teachers and advisors that I have had have been very nice and helpful. I also think that they are very involved with the community.
Truman College is truly a great experience, this school is very diverse, and is truly amazing academically. The teachers really want to see you succeed, not only as a student, but personally as well. In high school I had a hard time learning new things because I would be distracted or simply have no motivation to continue, but here at Truman everyone shows love and appreciation, there are many clubs to join, and many student activities. I recommend this school for everyone.

I am a 31 year old single mother, finally making the decision to go back to school and purue my education in which I have been longing for. If I could go back in time, I would definitely tell my younger self to please stay in school, stop ditching and finish my senior. Go to as many college tours that I could muster. Choose a prominent culturally diverse university, to get the best education and experiences. Join social networks and study groups, most of all study smart not hard. Reward myself after completion of a project, but not before. Take the present more seriously, because it will most definitely affect my future.
I cannot really say there is anything I wish I had known before coming to this school. I was prepared when I came and knew what to expect.
Truman College has the most diverse population I have ever seen.
Harry S Truman, is a great community college, which i could recommend for other students who will like to attend. Since i started schooling there, i haven't find any difficulty, in learning. There is so many help opportunity available, for everyone. One thing i like about this school is they care about their students learning. Above all the school is not far from my home. It's a walking distance for me.
The worst thing about my Highschool is that is really small. There is not enought diversity and everything is brake into small comunities based on minorities. Finally, counciling is terible; they do not talk much about scholarships or universities that might help us in a future.
What I usually brag to my friends and family about my school is the fact that Harry S. Truman College has a diverse of students. I find myself continueously repeating that " ALL WALKS OF LIFE, ATTEND AND WORK AT MY SCHOOL, AND I LOVE IT! Growing up in a predominately african american neighborhood where poverty lies, was an extreme headache for me. At Truman I found myself interacting with different races and cultures, forming friendships and social networks. This is something that I only dreamed of when I was a child, and now my dream has come true.
My school is culturally diversed!
The most popular student activities/ group are: African and Friends student club, Latinos United for Education ( LUFE ), Pre- pharmacy club, Students of Service, and Truman Bible club.
The faculty provides excellent support and options for advancing towards an Associate Degree, and moving on to a four-year university.
The best place to get work done on campus, is the math center, and written center. They are always there to make sure their students are successful.
People who have big dreams and small pockets can start their journey here. People who need an extra push to get started, or back in the game, are also in the majority here.
The only kind of person who should not attend this school would be one who does not wish to be educated. I feel this is a very good two year school and is very accomadating to older, returning students, as well as foreign students.
The most frustrating thing about school is tuition payment. They don't accept a lot of public grants or financial aid, so most payment is required in full before a new semester can start. Although the credit hours are more affordable than other local colleges, it is still hard to work full time and pay my tuition my myself.
