TRUMAN COLLEGE is possibly one of the worstQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
TRUMAN COLLEGE is possibly one of the worst city colleges in chicago. The area is very occupied with the lower side of Downtowners. very busy area. there is no student parking beacause somehow the school is always doing some kind of weird unexplained construction. The school cater to their International students more; leaving their native students feeling outcasted from many on-campus activities. Truman college put absolutely no money into their school building, the computer rooms/library are hidden on the lower levels. IT IS not a safe atmosphere, security only guard the front entrances, yet somehow you'll always find a bum sleep in the lounging areas. The plus side of the school is that many of their professors actually know how to teach. classrooms are average size, and teachers are always willing to help you succeed. the cost is only $72 per credit hour, making it affordable for those who have and have not.

Question
This school is so much better than mostSuper BrilliantChemistry
This school is so much better than most city colleges. The people get along and are friendly nice. Disregard the negative statements. I just don't like the area in which the skool is in so if you want to go here then you need take your classes and go straight home. This school can really help you succeed and the teachers do try to teach. There always fun events to attend so don't be a stranger ask people questions if you don't know and you have a good chance of finding a good friend here!

Question
DO NOT ATTEND THIS COLLEGE IF YOU WANTQuite BrightAccounting
DO NOT ATTEND THIS COLLEGE IF YOU WANT AN EDUCATION. I started at Truman College in the fall of 2008. The most that I have learned there is that the staff is unwilling to do anything above the least they can do. I was on work study and was notified one day at work that it was my last day because they ran out of money. One of my accounting teachers dictated study guides to use verse actual instructional time. Upon reviewing the class they were shocked at the level of injustice that this teacher was doing, however they would not do anything to correct the class. They were not willing to help me get in rolled in or attend the class as it was finally present by a different teacher because I had financial aid. Even more shocking is how I was treated threw out this entire process. I filed my complaint and grievance at the beginning of March and just heard back today, May 20. To top it off the college does NOT even offer all the course required to graduate with an associates degree in accounting. You would actually have to go to another one of the city colleges of Chicago to actually get a degree.
