What is your overall opinion of this school?

Big selling point: small classes. Big caveat: you can't get into them. Truman's science department has absolutely gone downhill. There's a reason attendance is down: the coursework is more difficult than it should be for many lower-level classes, it's hard to get into classes in the first place, and while Truman likes to boast that they have amazing professors, the honest truth is that there's a wide variety, just like anywhere else. To be fair, the cost is good. But if you research the mental health of the average Truman student, you’ll find there’s a reason it’s so cheap.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Truman State University seems like a nice place to be. The dorms are nice and the discussions I've had were all interesting and got me thinking. The time I spent there during JBA also made me acquainted with the food served there, there is a pretty nice selection with some vegan options for those who like that. Overall Truman is an amazing place that I wholly intend to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Do NOT go here if you plan on taking anything other than Business or Communications. Any given STEM related professor is more than likely arrogant and impossible to work with. They expect you to do excessive hours of coursework with no regard for other classes' workloads. They keep office hours but only as a formality, they rarely answer questions or help with issues unless they're in a good mood or like you. There are a few good professors within each department, but they are far outnumbered by those who only care about their research. The overall mental health on campus is abysmally low, and there have been multiple suicides within the past 4 years alone. The administration handles each situation poorly and any mental health assistance is overwhelmed and overworked. The academic culture tortures those who are in non-Business or Communications majors, while those who are in those majors party constantly and breeze through classes with little to no effort.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an incoming freshman, who has had a sibling attend Truman State before, I am very familiar with the campus and social life. I love the three hour drive to come up during the harvest festival and to hang out on the square. I look forward to attending college here because it is a small campus, it provides a family feel for people. There is a variety of clubs and activities for all kinds of people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The community is wonderful. The moment you step on campus, it will feel like home. No matter your major, interests, or experience, there is something here at Truman. There are so many student activities, majors, and just fun events around Kirksville as well. Great school that can compete with any school academically !

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Whenever I visited, I felt that Truman spoke to me a little bit. My tour guide was sincere, and I really liked the campus. Kirksville is not too big, neither is it to small. There is not much to do here. The wind chill is insane. Living in the dorms, I haven't smelled weed yet. Truman is affordable and academic. I'm happy I chose to go here. The first few weeks were very difficult, but after I took the time to adjust, everything was fine.

Truman State University is a great place for people who like the small town environment and do not mind being further away from home. Truman has great degree programs but it can be hard sometimes to focus with all the activities that go on during the school year on campus

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The quality of education and connections made at this university for the tuition cost are unmatched. Courses are rigorous, and it's easy to see all types of students striving to achieve more in life. Truman is also incredibly stressful. In order to keep 100% of initial academic scholarships, the students have to keep a G.P.A. of at least 3.25, which is very difficult for incoming freshman. There is little room for outside entertainment, because Truman is located in the middle of nowhere, so many students resort to drinking as their main source of entertainment aside from school clubs and social organizations. It becomes exceedingly cold and windy in the winter, and when there are layers of ice on every unkept sidewalk, classes are still not called off. The mental health services are continually backed up and understaffed, in the midst of four suicides in the past two years. Funding has also become an issue in recent years, as they are currently operating on a budget on par with the 1990's. However, faculty are always doing their best to provide challenging course work, service opportunities, outside perspectives, and community involvement. They do what they can with what they have. At Truman, everyone is creating more with less. We are the coal under high pressure that forms diamonds, to shine brilliantly and reflect light where we're needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that Truman is an academically amazing school. The sports are good depending on which events you attend. There's always things going on throughout campus so there are ways to get involved in everything. The housing on campus isn't the best and the food is good about one day a week. I love going to Truman, even though there are a few downfalls. I can't wait to obtain all the opportunities that Truman has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Truman is very dedicated to academics and many professors are always willing to help. While this University is very much focused on education, there are still plenty of activities to get involved with on and off campus. We are a very diverse community where everyone belongs to at least one group of people. There are always fun and social events going on campus but they are totally optional. Overall, Truman is a great place to attend because they are determined to have their students succeed.
