I am enjoying my time on campus, there has been plenty to do every weekend; even Labor Day weekend when there was barely anyone here! I would choose Truman again, mostly because it has what I need, not always what I want. And that can be a good thing! Budgeting is very easy to do when there is barely anywhere to spend your excess money!

I would like to say that this school comes out not like what I expected. This school is considered as a difficult school and has a lot of assignment to do. Also the transportation is not so good here. But if you really like a lot of study, this is the right place to go.

The school is ehh but I've met some of the most amazing people at Truman which makes my experience here worthwhile.
