Truman State University

A day at Truman State University is anything but typical. Come take a peek into our lively community of learners, pursuing their passions and preparing for lives that matter in their own unique way.

Celebrating International Week

In honor of International Week 2019, international students at Truman took some time to share their thoughts on everything from their biggest surprise upon arriving in the United States to their favorite American food to their favorite classes. Meet students from China, India, Japan, Vietnam, Honduras, Malaysia, Nepal and many other places around the world.

Organizations & Events

Truman Students don’t focus all their time on academics. They lead very active social lives outside the classroom, taking part in different kinds of activities, events, and joining various organizations. Truman has hundreds of professional, cultural, and Greek organizations that students can join and have an active social life. This short video shows one of these organizations and an event that is held every year at Truman State. Watch and learn more about Truman!

I was positively impressed about the way Truman takes care of its international students. Every time I needed advice or I had a difficulty, I always got some help from the CIS team.
