What makes Truman college unique and one of the greatest community colleges is its numerous diversity. Students from different cultural backgrounds interact and grow with a team spirit that helps them through future success. Although the quality of teaching is exemplary, the great diversity in this college makes it difficult for some professors to clearly understand their students. Nevertheless, they put a tremendous effort to soothe every students' needs. Truman college is the best place for anyone who wants to grow academically while obtaining leadership skills and the Math Center at Truman provides an equitable and interactive space for students taking courses in mathematics as a prerequisite and those willing to pursue a career in Maths.
Review City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College
Chemistry students at Harry S Truman College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, received hands-on industry experience in class and an opportunity to apply for a paid summer internship through a partnership with Chicago Discovery Solutions, a company focused on developing new, environmentally-friendly technologies for pharmaceutical research.

I love the college, I've had nothing but great experiences with the students and the staff! It's not far away from my house and I know a lot of people who go here. I went to the high school and it was enjoyable
