    Kirksville Missouri is a tiny town in the middle of no where, but the campus organizations and all the student involvement keeps everyone busy all the time. Students run the campus and the faculty love that such initiative is present. We get to plan our own programs, start our own clubs and participate with the organizations that we love. The community feel is always felt. I love Truman so much I am a current Student Ambassador (tour guide) and I have been since being a freshman.

    From the time it took to complete my application to submitting my housing info, I received 3 phone calls from current Truman students making sure I was doing alright. They answered my questions and were very helpful. Truman has such a friendly atmosphere, I can tell it's going to be great.

    Did you know that Truman students hail from nearly every state, and over 40 other countries as well? Talk about diversity! You are always meeting new people, doing new things, and having new experiences. there are over 200 clubs and organizations on campus, so there is always a place where you can feel right at home. The campus itself, though smaller and in a smaller town, is beautiful in any season, and the Student Activites Board works really hard to give students fun, free things to do. Last spring, we had a quidditch (from Harry Potter) tournament. There was Butterbeer, Fizzy Whizzing Pops, Chocolate Frogs, and Pumpkin Spice tea. And everything was FREE!
