    Kirksville is a very small city and the surrounding areas are pretty much just as boring. However, it is what you make of it. Most of downtown is walkable and only 3 minutes away and there are cute little thrift stores and cafes there. If you're going to college to party, Truman is not the place. If you are coming for an education, Kirksville is dealable.

    I am not a very exciting person, so I can't say that I know. Groups on campus hold concerts and lots of interesting shows. Oktoberfest was just the other day, with endless rootbeer for a dollar and great entertainment. There's not a lot to do around town, as Kirksville's pretty small, but there are a lot of groups and interesting things going on around campus, so I'd say there's plenty to do.

    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.
