I haven't seen any off-campus transportation, but that's largely because it's not needed. Many of the students who live off campus are within a 15-20 minute walking distance to their classes, and there's plenty of available parking spots throughout the day to park for commuters.
Generally Pretty up-To-Date – Truman was a campus built a long time ago, and some of the buildings show it. Baldwin, for example, is rather old (and smells like it). Many of the buildings on campus have recently been renovated, such as Ryle Hall, Violette, etc. The library is a very aesthetically pleasing place - largely because, in order to expand, they build a building AROUND the whole library. So you can see where the outside used to be, while in the inside (hard to describe). Some of the books could be updated there, though.
Kirksville - the Littlest Big Town Ever – I, like many people looking at Truman State, was hesitant about the town of Kirksville. What I didn't realize was just how large it actually is. There's a large movie theatre, a super Wal-Mart, every fast food chain you could think of (except Jack-in-the-Box unfortunately), and the town people are super friendly. You can walk to most of the places, and you'll find that you'll largely be on campus anyways, since there's so much to do.
Absolutely love the town - it might not have huge shopping malls, or exciting night clubs, but that's not what college is for. There's plenty of fraternity parties to spark your interest.
