Truman Recognized on Elite List of Best Buys


Truman is one of 10 public schools chosen in the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” Best Buys of 2021.

For 37 years, the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” has chosen a select group of schools noted for quality academic offerings and affordable cost for its annual best buy list. The 2021 guide includes 20 schools – 10 public and 10 private – it deems as best buys. These are schools that, in the judgement of the editors, offer “outstanding educational value as determined by academic quality in relation to the net cost of attendance.”

Truman has been included in the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” for six consecutive years and 12 times total.

This year’s best buy list includes colleges and universities throughout the United States. Truman was the only Missouri school to be included among the Fiske best buy schools.
