“The professors take what we are learning in class and apply it to other disciplines and the real world extremely well. That is one of the reasons why our liberal arts program at Truman is so successful. It helps me to have a more well-rounded and informed view of a topic.”

“My favorite spot on campus in in the Library on the second floor next to the windows. I can grab a coffee and work on homework in between class while enjoying the great view!.”

“Professors at Truman genuinely care about their students, and they make great connections for networking and finding other resources outside of Truman. My professors ultimately have shown me that they are invested in who I am outside of their class by attending my volleyball games and supporting me athletically.”
