The greatest benefit of my Truman education was the access to professors. In addition to small class sizes, my professors worked with me on specific areas of interest, both in and out of the classroom. Not only did they mentor me during my time as a Truman student, but they continue to do so as I applied for and now begin my graduate studies. But perhaps more importantly, they supported me not only as a student, but as a person and community member, encouraging healthy habits and community service.
