Degree: Theatre/Theatre Arts Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Truman is an excellent choice for any student looking for academic rigor and a supportive academic community. My classes were challenging, but my professors were all rooting for my success, and were willing to help me in any way possible. There are hundreds of organizations on campus, so there are a multitude of opportunities to get involved doing something that you love, or something that you've always wanted to try. While the town of Kirksville is small and fairly unexciting, SAB does a great job of providing fun events to attend throughout each semester. There is almost always something happening every evening, so it isn't easy to get bored. Truman provided me a great academic experience for a great price, and it set me up for future success.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2005

Great, challenging college at reasonable cost. Ivy League type education at small state school prices. Teachers and staff are very approachable for 1 on 1 help when necessary.

It was an excellent school with high standards and passionate professors. It was not easy, but it was interesting and worth the work.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2011

Truman was amazing! I loved the small class sizes and close interaction with professors. I had the chance to do undergraduate research, which wouldn't have been possible in a larger school, and doing that gave me so much experience!

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2006

Wonderful experience. Small classes , engaged students. Not a walk-through college. You'll work hard to get through, but your preparation will be the reward.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2012

The faculty are not particularly talented or knowledgeable, but you get what you pay for. There is good thinking happening in the Business program though. For example, the focus on group projects and presentations is incredibly helpful for a real-world job. Also, the focus on professional development and career preparedness is very good.

Degree: Elementary Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013

Sadly, Truman's MAE program suffers greatly because the instructors are of poor quality and the surrounding schools are a sampling of some of the least-diverse elementary schools in the country. Cash Cow school--students come in, pay, get a degree. No expectations of quality or excellence.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2014

My university is the best in the Midwest! Small, but not too small, it is situated in a cute little town without too many distractions and everything a college student on a budget needs. The vast majority of my professors have been extremely helpful and well-versed in the field of study they are teaching. The only thing I have not appreciated is that they have classes that I was looking forward to taking but that are major restricted because they do not have enough professors. For instance, Creative Writing and musical instrument learning classes are off-limits to me as a Psychology major.
