    B.A. Communication, Class of 2008

    It's a small liberal-arts college, so there is a sense of closeness and community. Students study a lot because academics are high-pressure. They attend school-sponsored events like concerts and comedians, but also have a host of other social opportunities provided by student organizations, including greek organizations.

    Sociology, Class of 2014

    Truman State University is known for being a "nerd" school. Academics are rigorous, but there is very little to do on campus and in the surrounding town. Thus, most people who would rather do adventurous or social things go to different universities.

    2 Rated January 2016

    Business Administration, Class of 2006

    Smart students wanting to get more education than a standard walk-through degree.

    All residence halls have been remodeled in recent years, as well as the dining halls. Classroom buildings are in the process of remodeling. Overall, the buildings are appealing, clean, and homey.

    They are okay, the tuition is extremely low, so the facilities are about what I would expect for not paying much.

    A wide variety of things for everyone. School life does not revolve around Greek system, but it's very active, so you can be very busy and involved wether you join a fraternity or sorority or not
