Active students can take advantage of the local skate park or the many outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, and boating at Thousand Hills State Park. The downtown movie theater is only blocks from campus, and the local shops, restaurants, historical attractions, and cafes give students places to study, relax, and hang out with friends.
A community of approximately 17,000 people, Kirksville, Missouri, offers our students the opportunity to pursue their interests and create a rich college experience for themselves that they’ll remember long after graduation.

"I chose Truman because of the affordability and its academic reputation. I looked at other schools, both public and private, and discovered that Truman is on par academically with so many universities but for a fraction of the cost. I knew that I wanted a stellar education but didn’t want to graduate with thousands of dollars in debt, so Truman fit that mold perfectly."
