In my first year, I only had oneBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
In my first year, I only had one professor that deserved his salary. Every other professor has not spoken clear English, has not returned work in a timely manner if at all, often do not really provide the services that they claim they do (office hours get shortened, if they say they'll give extensions they don't), and really just don't care. The only time a professor might approach a student is to tell them they don't come to class enough, and that they're going to deduct a letter grade. Yes. Usually 5-10% of your grade is attendance. I got straight A's in a class but got a C overall because "I missed too many classes." The professor cancelled or had a sub for twice as many classes as I'd missed.

Question
I was an extremely bright student who decidedQuite Bright
I was an extremely bright student who decided to go to Truman strictly for the financial incentives it provided.

I would STRONGLY urge everyone not to settle on Truman because it is cost efficient. You will have a horrible time. You will find yourself overly-stimulated by classes, coursework, and extracurriculars that get shoved down your throat to distract you from the fact that youre in the middle of nowhere. It will not provide you with the college experience everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy.

Do not allow the schools reputation or the seeming abundance of extracurriculars sway your vote. You are a cog in a machine, but the school is excellent at trying to convince you youre not. I suppose it is good practice for all those going into the corporate world...If you absolutely need a degree, need it for cheap, and dont mind wasting 4 years of your life then Truman will suffice, but I urge everyone to strive for greater than this small campus plopped in the middle of Kirksville.
