Truman fostered and thrived based on a community of academically inclined students. School work always came before socialization. The size of the campus was also a benefit. It took a maximum of ten minutes to get from any given building to another on campus. Most of the off campus student housing was less than 15 minutes away from the school by foot.

Truman State University makes every student feel welcome. All of my teachers know me by name and ask how my day is going when I see them in the hall. Truman is has a very great recruitment program, they let you know you're not just another number. They even sent me a half birthday card after I applied. It offers a wide variety in different majors and is a liberal arts school, so not only do we take classes in our major, but outside as well.


The classes here are small and the professors really get to know each student.


Truman had the better and higher education standards for my major than the other schools and it was for the same price. It was a good deal, better qualiy of education, for the same price as an okay quality of education.


It is very affordable comapred to other schools, and I still feel like I am getting a well-rounded education.


Truman is unique in that its smaller than average size and selectivity allow students to work more closely with each other and their professors to accomplish more in the classroom setting as well as outside of it. The students are affable and approachable, imediately welcoming newcomers into any setting. Students are encouraged, but not forced, to go outside their comfort zone and to experience new things. While most of the campus identifies democratically, conservatives and libertarians find a strong group to interact with, and rivalries are never an issue. All are welcome and appreciated.
