Truman’s Liberal Arts program allowed me to take classes in a variety of areas besides my major. I spent a semester in Orlando, Fla., completing an internship through the Disney College Program. I spent a semester in Angers, France, taking business classes with international students from around the world, and I spent a summer in Taiwan teaching ESL.
