What makes Truman college unique and one of the greatest community colleges is its numerous diversity. Students from different cultural backgrounds interact and grow with a team spirit that helps them through future success. Although the quality of teaching is exemplary, the great diversity in this college makes it difficult for some professors to clearly understand their students. Nevertheless, they put a tremendous effort to soothe every students' needs. Truman college is the best place for anyone who wants to grow academically while obtaining leadership skills and the Math Center at Truman provides an equitable and interactive space for students taking courses in mathematics as a prerequisite and those willing to pursue a career in Maths.

I attended Truman for over 3 years and graduated from the Truman Nursing program with honors. (The extra year was for pre-requisite classes). Do not waste your time or money with this school. The frustration they will cause you is just unbearable. Aside from the few professors that actually care, there is nothing good about this institution. The administration is a complete joke, and expect to be treated like a 10 year old and spoken to with a complete lack of respect. It was a horrible experience that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Spend the money and find another school, you will be happy you did.

Truman college give me the last opportunity to success in my life. After 10 year off from school I diceded to go back and be a professional. However, in Truman college I met he best peoe who opened the door for me and give me the last chance to continue. Something that I thought is going to be impossible. Nonetheless,I am working hard to have good grades. In additio, Truman college is a cozy and friendly place. The huge diversity of culture makes Truman special. I love this places.
