Truman students come from 160 countries and speak 90 languages. Nearly half are Hispanic. They live all over Chicago, but most come from communities close to the college. Truman has the oldest and most successful two-year nursing program in Illinois, as well as the state's only two-year biotechnology program.
In addition to the main campus, Truman maintains nearly a dozen satellite campuses, the largest and most established being the Lakeview Learning Center on Clark Street in Wrigleyville. The college recently completed a new building on the main campus that will allow Truman to consolidate student services and offer 1,100 secure, free parking spaces to faculty, staff and students. The building is certified Silver through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program of the US Green Building Council. It is named after late State Representative Larry McKeon, a longtime friend of the college who was instrumental in bringing the project to fruition.
