Our Students

The Typical Truman Student

Our curious, passionate students are actively involved in everything they pursue—academically, socially, personally—and form a community of learners where everyone pushes each other to excel.

Curious. Smart. Inspiring

Truman’s student population shares a passion for the pursuit of knowledge, ability, community, and a better world. They participate in nearly 240 student organizations, volunteer in the Kirksville community, work one-on-one beside their professors and mentors to develop new and innovative research, and form lifelong connections.

Most important of all, Truman students approach learning with enthusiasm pursuing the questions that matter most to them—in classes, in campus activities, in their careers, and in their lives.
