Graduates Tell Why They Chose Truman State University

Truman Student“I chose Truman because of its size and the cost of living here.  Truman is ranked among one of the top universities in the U.S. and surprisingly too, the cost is very reasonable compared to others.  This is the place to be if you want to learn in order to succeed.  Since Truman has a serene atmosphere, you get to have fun as well as study.  The people here are so warming.  In fact, the warm-hearted people keep you going when times  get challenging.”
