    Ratemyprofessor.com is a must before enrollment. Do not underestimate the school and work as hard as you can. Time management is essential if you want to be able to juggle home, school, and work.

    Like most colleges, the teachers don't personally care about you, so make sure to keep up with the material and assignments. And it's the most diverse community college in the nation, so make friends!

    Going to school in a community college is not a bad thing. It is inexpensive and helps you with the credits you need rather than paying thousands of dollars at a university.

    I attended Truman College for two years as a non-traditional student. I was heavily involved in campus activities, worked on campus and tried to keep a hefty amount of college credits, if possible. What I am getting at is that I was there at least 40 hours a week and the President and some of the Deans knew my name. Let me start with the bad news! 1. Shootings are common in the area. 2. There are a lot of rumors about how Truman works it's finances and it directly effects nearly every student negatively. 3. The administrative office staff don't really understand the concept of streamlining any process. They might seem incompetent at times, especially in regards to your financial matters (see two). 4. The school is old and some of the students treat it like crap and it just kind of gives you the impression of a prison. Truman is like a sour patch kid. Sour on the outside but sweet on the inside. Most of the professors I have encountered enjoy teaching just to teach. If you show initiative, they will look out for you and encourage you. Personally, I was able to find myself a wonderful mentor. Truman provided me with my first research experience in the biology lab, gave me an award, gave me opportunities to become a leader and work in my community. Truman opened a lot of doors for me including transferring to my top 4 year university on nearly a full scholarship. (2k a year for a 50k a year school!) City Colleges are maybe going a little overboard with the amount of (usually mediocre) programs they have available for students to join and workshops to go to. But, I suppose it's better than nothing? So yes, there are a handful of not-so-amazing things at Truman... but it was ok! It was the stepping stone I needed, it did it's duty.
