Truman State University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about Truman State University?


The most frustrating thing was the weather. It is far enough north that it snows a lot during winter and the wind combined with cold temperatures make it unenjoyable to walk to classes during the winter. They do a good job of clearing the sidewalks of snow and ice but the majority of students walk to classes and when there's bad weather, it's horrible.


When in college you are supposed to focus on one thing, grades. But everyone needs a break sometimes or somewhere to go to just relax and have a good time. In Kirksville there is not much to do besides go to the local walmart. The only other alternative is to try to find something on campus to do or study more. Studying is very important, but having something else to do every once and a while would not hurt.


The most frustrating thing about Truman is the lack of commercialization in the town. Most students here are from larger towns and it can become really inconveinient to have to drive an hour and a half or longer if you want to go to a mall or see a certain movie or (for African americans) find a decent hairdresser. A small town is nice, but after a while it can become boring and inconveinient; especially if you don't have the luxury of having a vehicle.


The most frustrating thing about my school would be the weather. Walking to class in the snow and freezing wind is not the most fun thing to do.


The pressure on each student to excel and be the best in classes made up of the best in each high school.


TSU is located in a fairly rural area that some would call isolated. There are several fast food restaurants but no shopping centers or downtown to speak of. This is a drawback for anyone who visits Truman.


The most frustrating thing about my school is probably the workload. There's always a LOT of homework to do, and it gets old. But everyone manages to get it all done, and teachers are pretty willing t o give extensions. It's also hard to get financial aid after freshman year, if you didn't recieve an aid package starting off. But most people here have at least some financial aid, and 30{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} graduate with no debt.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is in a rural area, meaning there is not a whole lot do as far as malls and other big stores. All the country side is nice though.


I think the most frustrating thing about my school is thier scholarship program. They give out alot of full-rides but not many other scholarships for undergraduates. I had decent high school scores but they were just a shade to low to get even the smallest academic scholarship. They haven't opened to many financial opportunities for me.


There are professors and students that are difficult to get along with because of differeing viewpoints or commitment to coursework but I think that this problem can occur at any university so I really have no problems that make me frustrated with the school.
