    Truman's a really great school with a very cheap price considering how ridiculous college prices are anymore. Only $12,000 or so for out of state tuition, $8,000 for in-state.

    Part of the reason Truman State University was my number one pick is because of the price. For the amazing value of education you get on this campus the price is ridiculously low and that's about all that needs to be said.

    Paying out of state tuition is definitely worth it to me to be able to attend this school. It's such a great community and all of the teachers are really genuine which is something I really wanted to find. I tried out larger schools and those just weren't welcoming.

    Truman is cheap. It's one of the cheapest in the state. It is definitely worth the money. You are getting a good education and its a very nice school (not to mention beautiful). Once you graduate, you will find that most jobs will pick a Truman student over many other school. It's true what they say: Truman is the Harvard of the Midwest.
