Located a few blocks from the downtown area of Kirksville, Missouri, our park-like campus has been recognized as a Tree Campus USA site by the Arbor Day Foundation. Our campus atmosphere is open and friendly with plenty of places to gather with friends to study, eat, socialize, relax, and have fun.
Living on campus allows you to experience college life to its fullest and make friendships that will last a lifetime. You are close to classes, the library, and the Rec Center, with easy access to the student activities that make campus life so rewarding. Each of our university residences has a unique personality and are home to nearly all of our freshmen as well as a majority of our sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Students studying a range of subjects from music to communication to biology can pursue their curiosity in depth using our classrooms and learning facilities that include multiple scientific teaching and research laboratories, a greenhouse, walk-in environmental chambers, production lab facilities, a music computing lab, and an electronic music studio, among others.
Pickler Memorial Library—complete with lots of open space, window seating, views of the Quad, and a large atrium—houses more than 500,000 volumes and features Starbucks, computer labs, group meeting and study rooms, an assistive technology lab, and many other services available for student use.
The Student Union features the University Bookstore and community spaces where students can eat, socialize, attend events, or study. And our Recreation Center provides a place for students to stay active and healthy through the use of our multiple gymnasiums, weight room, cardio equipment, fitness classes, intramural sports, and more. The Quad, a large grassy area in the heart of campus, is a fun and relaxing place with all kinds of spontaneous events from Frisbee, to yoga, to an energetic game of Humans vs. Zombies.
In all, our comfortable, welcoming community features everything students need to stay active, learn, develop, and grow.[/column]
Above all else, Truman has given me the resources and opportunities to be able to sculpt myself into the best possible student, citizen, and person that I can be.
