Public university in the Midwest for 18 years running (U.S. News & World Report)
At Truman, our students are anything but ordinary, and they share a passion for learning. In fact, they are passionate about everything they pursue — academically, socially and personally. Reaching for the horizon, they look for ways to make a difference in the world.
Truman has the highest percent of students with Missouri's prestigious Bright Flight Scholarship, and 92% of this year's incoming class had a GPA of 3.25 or higher. About half our students choose to continue their education in graduate school.
One in five students at Truman pursues serious research as an undergraduate — and students broaden their horizons through other opportunities beyond the classroom such as study abroad, internships and service learning.
"The diversity of the students at Truman definitely surprised me. We’re in a small town in northeast Missouri, but there are students from all over the world here."
