    The town that Truman is located in, Kirksville, also has a large state park called Thousand Hills. There is hiking, biking, canoeing and kayaking, picnic areas, and playgrounds. Kirksville also has many restaurants and a few shopping stores. .

    Their is always something going on around campus that its hard to list it all but a few things are intramural sports at the recreation center. We have all different types of dance groups, a few a cappella groups and anime club. Almost anything you can think of is here on campus or can be brought here if your willing to make it happen. If its not here the school encourages you to change that and bring as much fun as possible.

    The town its self never has much to do and it is rather small, coming from a city of over 100,000 people. The school however offers many options of activities. They bring in musicians, comedians, guest speakers, dances, clubs, movie nights, the list goes on and on. You can also find sporting events to go to on most occasions, they make sure you are never bored.

    Your'e going to hear this a lot, but the key to fun is getting involved. We have so many organization on campus, and we also have Greek Life. I've met people from everywhere and 9 times out of 10, they are always involved in something. We also have a 1000 Hills State Park, and there is a beautiful lake that you can go boating and canoeing on. The Square is a really cute little town that is in walking distance from the school. They have restaurants, thrift shops, and lots of other things. I encourage you to meet new people. Make as many friends as possible and you'll never encounter a dull moment.

    There is a beach which I think is a lot of fun. It is in the National Park where there are also trails and camping sites. Walking around the square is also very pretty in the spring.

    Kirksville is small, so join an organization! There are plenty of sports and clubs. The Greek Life on campus is friendly and fairly inexpensive. I would recommend going through rush even if you are unsure, many people decide to try it out and then do not actually pledge. The town of Kirksville has farmers markets until October on the square and a variety of places to eat. There's a bowling alley with $1 bowling every Monday. Monday-Thursday students get $5 tickets at the theatre. Truman SAB is pretty good about bringing in concerts. We had Childish Gambino a year ago and Flogging Molly 4 years ago!
