Pre-Optometry Studies: Mentoring Program with the University of Missouri—St. Louis School of Optometry

Truman alumni attending the University of Missouri—St. Louis (UMSL)  offer mentoring to Truman students who are thinking of applying to optometry school as well as students who in in the midst of the application process or who have already been accepted to optometry school.

As optometry students, they understand the frustrations and questions that come along with applying to optometry school and would like to offer you the opportunity to have your questions answered by students who have recently experienced the process.

If you are interested in meeting up with a first- or second-year optometry student to talk about anything relating to school or the application process, send an email (tell us what your major is to help us select an appropriate student-mentor) to An UMSL student will then send you an email, and you can together decide where and when you would like to meet up (i.e. come to campus and get a tour and talk, talk on the phone, Gmail video, or text).
