Truman State University is a public liberal arts and sciences university in Missouri, United States and a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. About 6,000 students attend Truman, pursuing degrees in 43 undergraduate and 9 Graduate programs. It is located in Kirksville in northeastern Missouri and named after President Harry Truman, the only President born in the state. Until 1996, the school was known as Northeast Missouri State University when the name was changed to better reflect their statewide mission. In the 2012 U.S. News & World Report, Truman was again ranked 8th in the Midwest among regional universities, the highest ranking in this category for a school in Missouri .[5] Notwithstanding its 74% acceptance rate, Truman State is the only public institution in the state officially designated to have highly selective admissions standards.[6][7]

History

Truman State University Entrance

Truman State University was founded in 1867 by Joseph Baldwin as the First Missouri Normal School and Commercial College. Baldwin was considered a pioneer in education, and his school quickly gained official recognition in 1870 by the Missouri General Assembly, which designated it as the first public teaching college in Missouri.

25 Missouri counties were designated as the school's college district, including Adair, Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Chariton, Clark, Howard, Knox, Lewis, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Macon, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike, Putnam, Ralls, Randolph, St. Charles, Schuyler, Scotland, Shelby, Sullivan and Warren.

No official school colors have ever been selected. However, Basil Brewer wrote the school song "The Purple and White" in 1902, prompting the college to adopt school colors of purple and white. They have remained the school colors since.[8] And in 1915, the bulldog became the official mascot of the college.

In 1924 a fire destroyed Old Baldwin Hall and the library. Both were rebuilt, with $25,000 for the library donated by Samuel M. Pickler, a member of the first graduating class of 1870, former faculty member, and local merchant. The broad pond in the quadrangle (a prominent feature in pre-1924 photographs) was pumped dry in a futile attempt to put out the fire. The depression was filled in with debris from the ruined buildings and covered with grass, now serving as the quadrangle ("Quad") of the campus.

The college was renamed Northeast Missouri State University in 1972, and, in 1983, the university was awarded the G. Theodore Mitau Award for Innovation and Change in Higher Education by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Northeast Missouri State continued pushing for excellence. On June 20, 1985, Governor John Ashcroft signed a bill that designated the university as Missouri's only statewide public liberal arts and sciences university. This changed the school's mission to a state-wide rather than a regional (northeast) objective. As such, nearly 100 programs were dropped in the span of six years, including all two-year programs that did not fulfill the liberal arts mission.

The school continued to win praise from such publications as US News and World Report and the university's reputation continued to spread. By the 1990s, the university was no longer solely a teachers' college, but also had a nationally-known accounting division and schools of science, mathematics, computer science and literature. Ten years after Governor Ashcroft's designation, Governor Mel Carnahan signed legislation renaming the school Truman State University. Truman State University is designated by statute as Missouri's premier public liberal arts and sciences institution.

Academic mission

On June 15, 2007, the Board of Governors approved and adopted the University Strategic Plan. In this plan the university will continue its devotion to providing a liberal arts education that is financially accessible. The primary vision, as stated by the Plan, is for Truman to be "America’s premier public liberal arts and sciences university."[4] The Plan also lists six goals that outlines an agenda that will be implemented in the next three to five years.

As part of its focus on liberal arts and sciences, Truman requires all students to complete the Liberal Studies Program [5], or LSP. The LSP is designed to give students a "broad educational experience", and consists of Essential Skills, Modes of Inquiry, and Interconnecting Perspectives sections.

Board of Governors

Truman State's Board of Governors consists of ten members. Each member is appointed by the Governor of Missouri to serve a four-year term, with a student representative serving for two years. The ten members must meet residential requirements defined by Missouri law as follows:

  • Four voting members from inside Truman's regional boundary, provided that not more than one person from the same county is selected.
  • Three voting members from in-state, provided that not more than one person is from the same college region defined by Missouri state law.
  • Two non-voting members from out-of-state. Former U.S. Housing and Urban Development secretary Alphonso Jackson, a graduate of Truman, served on the board in this capacity for two terms.
  • One non-voting member who is a current full-time Truman student. Student groups have lobbied the state to allow this member to vote. The Truman Student Senate recently[when?] passed a unanimous resolution calling for a student to become a voting member of the Board of Governors and sent the resolution to every member of the Missouri Legislature.

The current Board of Governors includes the following members:[9]

  • Chair - Matthew W. Potter, St. Louis
  • Vice Chair - John W. Siscel, III, St. Louis
  • Secretary - Kenneth L. Read, Kirksville
  • Cheryl J. Cozette, Columbia
  • Mike Greenwell, Shelbina
  • Karen Haber, Kansas City
  • Mark S. Wasinger, Hannibal

Board Members – Nonvoting – Out-of-State

  • John Hilton, Alexandria, Virginia
  • Michael A. Zito

Board Member – Nonvoting – Student Representative

  • Luke Freeland, Kirksville

The Board of Governors also includes four committees: the Finance and Audit Committee, the Budget and Capital Projects Committee, the Honorary Degrees Committee, and the Truman State University Foundation Board of Directors.[10]

Campus

The campus is located on the south side of Kirksville. Truman's main campus is situated around a slightly wooded quadrangle, also known as the "Quad." It is two blocks south of the town square, which includes an eight screen movie theatre and various eateries.

Notable buildings on campus include Pickler Memorial Library, the Kirk Memorial, the Kirk Auditorium Building (the oldest building on campus, built in 1922), Magruder Hall, McClain Hall, Baldwin Hall, Violette Hall, Barnett Hall, Ophelia Parrish, Pershing Arena and the Recreation Center (or "The Rec").

Pickler Memorial Library was named after Samuel M. Pickler, who donated funds to rebuild the library after it was destroyed by fire in 1924. Renovated in 1993, it now houses the main computer lab, as well as approximately 500,000 volumes of various works. The front lobby area of Pickler Memorial Library is known as "the Bubble" for its curved glass atrium.

Kirk Memorial is a small, domed structure near the center of campus. The structure is dedicated to John Kirk, the fifth president of the university. It formerly housed Truman's debate team and now houses a few administrative offices. The Kirk Auditorium, now known as "Kirk Building," was once the University's combined gymnasium and auditorium facility. It currently houses the Center for International Education, Student Affairs, Publications and the Department of Sports Information. The Rec is located just north of Centennial Residence Hall and is open everyday except on holidays. It also offers a gymnasium for a variety sports, a weight room, an elevated track, various exercise equipment, and a smaller, multipurpose gym for hockey, indoor soccer, etc. There are seven main academic buildings. Magruder Hall is the science building and houses the departments of Chemistry, physics, Biology and Agriculture. McClain Hall serves as both an administrative and academic building. For the academic portion, Classical & Modern Languages, Economics, English & Linguistics, History, Philosophy & Religion, Political Science and Psychology can be found there. Baldwin Hall is connected to McClain Hall and houses the campus auditorium that is best known for hosting cultural events through the Kohlenberg-Lyceum Series. Violette Hall, named after former history professor E.M. Violette, is home to the School of Business, the Mathematics and Computer Science Department and the Education Department. Ophelia Parrish is used as home to the Art, Music and Theatre Departments. Barnett Hall is home to the departments of Anthropology, Geography and Sociology; Communication; Communication Disorders; Justice Systems; and Nursing programs. Finally, Pershing Arena is for department of Health and Exercise Science classes.

Services available on campus to students include the student health center, career center and writing center. General use of the health center is free, but it is closed on the weekends and holidays. The career center is located next to the health center and provides help to students in determining a career path, selecting a major, developing career skills, helping put together a resume, or even conducting mock interviews. The writing center is located on the third floor of McClain and offers critique and editing for student papers.

Academics

Admissions

In order to be accepted to the university, applicants must have a combined ability score of at least 140. The combined ability score is calculated by adding the percentage of students in the applicant's graduating class that the applicant outranks and the percentage of students the applicant outscored on a nationally-standardized test (usually the ACT, although the SAT is also accepted). Admissions decisions are also based, however, on a mandatory application essay, the applicant's resume, and the applicant's high school and extracurricular record. According to the Princeton Review, Truman has a selectivity rating of 97, a 79% acceptance rate, and an 85% retention rate.[11] All applicants must have 4 credits of English, 3 credits of math, 3 credits of science, 2 credits of foreign language, 2 credits of social studies, and 1 credit of fine art. The average GPA of an admitted student is 3.76, with 50% of all admitted students ranking in the top 10% of their class, and the median ACT range is 25–31.

The Liberal Studies Program

On July 20, 1985, the state of Missouri charged Truman State University with serving as the state's premier public liberal arts and sciences university. In order to meet this commitment to the people of Missouri, the Truman faculty and administration created the Liberal Studies Program, the general education curriculum undergraduates complete in order to receive a Truman degree. The Liberal Studies Program consists of three distinct areas:

  • Essential Skills for success in liberal studies, including courses in writing as critical thinking, public speaking, elementary functions, statistics, computer literacy and personal well-being.
  • Modes of Inquiry by which students may approach problems and issues in other academic areas. Students must complete coursework in seven of the following eight modes: fine arts, literature, history, mathematics, philosophy or religion, life science, physical science and social science.
  • Interconnecting Perspectives that allow students to understand and appreciate better the knowledge they have gained. This includes taking a series of writing-enhanced courses, an interdisciplinary seminar course in the junior year, at least two semesters of a foreign language, and participating in an intercultural experience (this can be fulfilled through any one of a series of courses or by going on any study abroad trip).

Schools

Truman State University Entrance Close-Up

Campus Life

Residence Life

In the 1960s the university built Dobson Hall (1961), Ryle Hall (1963), Missouri Hall (1965) and Centennial Hall (1967). There are three other residence halls on campus: Blanton-Nason-Brewer (1948, Brewer added in 1959), Ezra C. Grim Hall (1923), and West Campus Suites (2006). The residence halls are maintained by ResLife, an administrative body of professionals and students who live in the halls and act as student advisors (SA's) and hall directors. Truman's residence halls are currently undergoing a $90 million renovation schedule. This project included the construction of West Campus Suites in 2006, the renovation of Missouri Hall in 2006, Blanton-Nason-Brewer in 2007, and Dobson in 2008. Ryle Hall is currently in the first phase of a two-year renovation, and Centennial is scheduled to undergo a two-year renovation after Ryle.

Dobson Hall is coed by wing and houses roughly 400 students. Dobson features community-style bathrooms, study areas, laundry facilities, air conditioning in all rooms and a convenience store, but no cafeteria.[20]

Ryle Hall is the second largest hall at Truman. This coed dorm houses nearly 600 students in suite-style rooms. The standard arrangement is two bedrooms, or four people, sharing one bathroom. Ryle has a spacious main lounge that is often used for on-campus events. The dorm features a cafeteria, computer labs, mailboxes, vending machines, automated teller machines (ATMs), laundry rooms, and also house a classroom used by the Residential College Program (RCP). Ryle will be undergoing renovations from 2009–2011. The North wing and main lounge of Ryle will be closed and remodeled during the 2009–2010 academic year, reopening in August 2010. The South wing of Ryle will be closed and remodeled during the 2010–2011 academic year, reopening in August 2011. Renovation plans also include remodeling the Ryle cafeteria during the summer of 2009.[21]

Centennial Hall (commonly called "C-Hall") is the largest residence hall on campus. This coed hall houses nearly 600 students in suite-style rooms. Like Ryle, the standard arrangement is two rooms, or four people, sharing one bathroom. Centennial also has a spacious main lounge that is often used for small on-campus events. The dorm features a cafeteria, computer labs, mailboxes, vending machines, ATMs, laundry rooms and also a large study lounge. The primary difference between Ryle and Centennial is that Ryle's lounge is located on the first floor with its cafeteria below, and that Centennial's cafeteria bisects the second floor, with the lounge area sitting directly below. Centennial will be the final dorm renovation on Truman's campus, completing a seven year renovation schedule of all of the residence halls. The hall renovated similarly to Ryle, in 2 stages, the first from 2011–2012 and the second from 2012–2013.[22]

Missouri Hall Director Zac Burden cuts the ribbon at the ceremony honoring the building's completed renovation in 2007. The project was part of a multi-year, multi-million dollar renovation and construction project for the residence hall system on campus.

Missouri Hall (commonly called "MO Hall") is a coed residence hall that houses 518 students, making it the third largest on campus. Missouri Hall is made up of seven different wings. On both the north and south sides of the building three wings join with a common lounge. The two common lounges are linked by a seventh "crossover" wing. From overhead, the building is shaped like an elongated asterisk. While each wing is either male or female, each "house" (the north or south side of a single floor) includes both male and female wings. The building also houses a large cafeteria, study rooms, laundry facilities and many public kitchens. With a high percentage of first year students each fall term, more students get their start at Truman in Missouri Hall than any other place on campus.A renovation of Missouri Hall began in the summer of 2006 and concluded during the summer of 2007. The upgrade included improved air conditioning, renovated bathrooms, wiring upgrades, improved community space, an updated dining hall, and a new lobby.[23]

Blanton-Nason-Brewer (commonly called "BNB"), offers three floors of suite-style, coed living arrangements to students. Originally three separate buildings connected by breezeways, the building underwent a major renovation in the 2007–2008 academic year and is now one, unified residence hall. The north wing, Brewer Hall, is primarily used as sorority housing. The east and south wings, respectively Nason Hall and Blanton Hall, are used as regular housing. BNB does not have its own dining hall, so residents typically walk to Missouri Hall, which is next door. The hall offers two large lounges with fireplaces on the first floor. The second and third floors have open community lounge areas, study rooms, computer workstations, laundry facilities, trash and recycling areas, and public kitchens.[24]

Grim Hall is the smallest residence hall on campus, with a capacity of just 68 residents. It is also unusual in its hardwood flooring and house-like appearance. Originally a dormitory for nurses at the adjacent Grim-Smith Hospital, it was later acquired by the University in the 1930s. For many years Grim was also the "International Dorm" by striving to maintain a population of at least one third foreign students. Because of its small size, Grim Hall sometimes feels more like a home than a large housing complex; much of its personality comes from its residents differentiating Grim from the large dormitories.[25]

West Campus Suites, just northwest of Centennial Hall, opened its doors to 416 students in Fall 2006. Currently, all floors are coed by suite and the building's residents come from all class standings. Each room (with the exception of single rooms for eight student advisors and apartments for the hall director and community coordinator) consists of two bedrooms attached to a central living room, sink, kitchen cabinets and large bathroom. All suites have individual central air conditioning. Each floor has its own dedicated lounge, 2 study rooms, laundry facilities, trash and recycling center, campus events bulletin board, and computer labs. A favorite amenity of students is the convenience store located off of the main lobby.[26]

Truman offers the option of three campus-owned apartments for student living: Randolph, Campbell and Fair. Randolph and Campbell Apartments provide residents with a kitchen area, while students living in Fair Apartments use their meal plan to eat on campus. Fair is located across the street from Violette Hall, Campbell is located next to the tennis courts, and Randolph is located behind Dobson Hall.[27]

Yet another option is Farm Hall, located at the University Farm. Only a handful of students, often majors in agricultural science, live here each year. Their work on the farm helps them gain useful first-hand experience, as well as help pay for room and board.

Student organizations

Truman is host to a variety of student organizations. Option for student involvement include campus media, cultural organization, departmental and professional groups, Greek life, honorary societies, political groups, recreational sporting organizations, religious communities, service groups and Student Government.[28]

Greek Life

The Greek community contains almost 20% of the campus in nineteen fraternities and eleven sororities.[29]

Interfraternity Council (IFC)

IFC governs the 14 men's social fraternities on campus:

Panhellenic Council

The sororities are governed by the Panhellenic Council, which is made up of five internationally recognized social sororities as well as the only local social sorority on campus:

There are several other local sororities: Alpha Sigma Gamma, Beta Omega Beta, Tau Lambda Sigma, and The Primroses.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

There are also seven of the "Divine Nine" National Pan-Hellenic Council historically-black fraternities and sororities:

Multicultural

The organizations do service around the community, provide leadership on campus, and provide a social outlet for students. In addition to these organizations, Truman also boasts an honor fraternity for nearly every major on campus.

Honorary

Truman also offers a wide selection of honorary organizations.[30]

In addition, there is the Pershing Society, a special organization for students who have been awarded the Pershing Scholarship, the University's most prestigious award.

International Students

Truman enrolls students from all over the world. According to 2009 figures from the International Student Affair Office, 309 students represent 45 countries, coming from Nepal, China and Vietnam.[31]

Campus Lore

The second – replacement – gum tree near the southwest corner of Ophelia Parrish Hall
  • The weather vane atop Kirk Memorial is welded in place so that it will always point northeast, in honor of the school's previous name and its location.[7]
  • "The Ghost of Centennial Hall" is named "Joan," who has been said to be a student killed in an auto accident in the 1970s. In addition, "Charlotte" and an unnamed little boy have haunted Grim Hall for 70 years, and "Gina" watches over the women of Ryle. See external link "Truman Ghost Stories," below.
  • Students traditionally stuck their chewing gum on a redbud tree on the east side of campus.[8] This "gum tree" was decorated in colorful wads, and at times, it even sported students' names. The tree was vandalized and knocked down by an unknown party in 2000, but students quickly adopted another tree.
  • The sunken garden, site of many student weddings, is actually the cellar left from the Baldwin Hall fire of 1924. Due to the frequency of student weddings in the sunken garden, a campus myth came into common circulation. It is alleged that if a new couple has their first kiss at midnight on one of the two benches located in the sunken garden, the couple will eventually get married.
  • A row of large, clapperless bells is fixed in a brick wall on the quad. The Bell Wall was built and dedicated at the Centennial Celebration in 1967. The bells were donated by Joe Burdman, local businessman and University benefactor. The historic bells were collected from abandoned churches, schoolhouses and public buildings in northeast Missouri. Each bell was meant to represent the ideals of liberty, justice, religion, and education.
  • The annual football game against Northwest Missouri State University was established in 1930 when Northwest president Uel W. Lamkin sent Fair a polished hickory stick from the farm where the former president Eugene Fair was born. The "Hickory Stick" has since been contested annually. [9]

Army ROTC

Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) was established at Truman in 1969. Approximately 200 Truman students are members of the "Bulldog Battalion" and enroll in military science courses each semester. Students completing the ROTC program are additionally awarded a minor in Military Science.

Athletics

Intercollegiate athletics

Truman Bulldogs logo.

Truman is a member of NCAA Division II and plays in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association conference. The athletic department sponsors 21 teams, 11 men's and 10 women's. Among Truman's most recent successes include: four regional championships for women's volleyball, a regional berth for men's basketball in 2006, and undefeated regular seasons for both men's and women's soccer. In March 2008, the women's swim team won their seventh NCAA Division II National Championship title in eight years, again beating their in state rival Drury University. The team holds the record for most national titles won in their division.[10] [11]

Men's intercollegiate athletic teams

Women's intercollegiate athletic teams

Facilities

Indoor sports are played in the Pershing Arena, named for general John J. Pershing who attended Truman the 1880s. Stokes Stadium is the site for home football games and track meets.

Club sports

In addition to NCAA intercollegiate athletics, the university fields a number of club level and recreational teams including: A nationally ranked IHSA Equestrian team, women's lacrosse which competes in the Central Plains Women's Lacrosse League, rugby union (Bulls and Bullets), a nationally ranked roller hockey team- a member of the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (NCRHA), ultimate frisbee (JujiTSU and TSUnami), men's volleyball and men's and women's soccer.[32]

Truman students passed a resolution in the Spring of 2007, adding a $50/semester fee to all students taking six or more credit hours to help support athletic facilities on campus. The addition of lights to Stokes Stadium was one of the first projects completed with the help of the student athletic fee.
