What are your hobbies?
I like to play soccer, read science fiction novels, and watch sports.
Why did you choose Truman?
I chose Truman because of its small class sizes, affordability, and the opportunity to engage in research as an undergraduate student.
How would you describe your professors?
They are genuinely interested in helping you learn and seeing that you go on to succeed in your chosen career. They are always available and willing to talk to you about something you did not understand
in class or what career you’re thinking about pursuing.
What do you like most about Truman?
Truman is not so big that you’re just another student, but it is not so small that you can’t make new friends. I think it just has the right balance between a large and a small university.
What is the atmosphere like for international students at Truman?
It is very welcoming. American students are very friendly and a lot of professors love having international students in their classes.
