Truman Achievements


Truman State University students love their school for many reasons. Just one of the reasons from this lengthy list is Truman’s outstanding academic reputation across the United States.

Truman was recently listed as one of the nation’s best colleges for an undergraduate education, as stated in The Princeton Review. The company highlighted Truman in its 2018 edition “The Best 382 Colleges.” This isn’t the first time Truman has gained recognition; the university was also premiered in The Princeton Review’s Best Midwestern Colleges.

The Review accredits Truman as “Missouri’s premier Liberal Arts and Sciences University and the only highly selective public institution in the state….Truman successfully combines affordability with the type of education and personal attention typically only offered at a private institution.”

The Princeton Review isn’t alone in their findings, the U.S. News and World Report ranked Truman State University, for the ninetieth successive year, as the number one public institution in the Midwest.

Schools featured in “The Best 382 Colleges,” are not ranked but instead rated in specific groupings of academics and administration, extracurricular, quality of life, and more.
