About Trulaske

Columbia

Columbia is a warm and friendly college community, conveniently located midway (just 2 hours) between Kansas City and St. Louis, and just one hour and fifteen minutes from the Lake of the Ozarks.

A cosmopolitan city with a population of approximately 113,000, Columbia's economy is based on educational, medical, distributive and insurance services, light industry, and agencies of the federal and state government. Lectures, concerts, art exhibits, dramatic productions, and other cultural, educational, and recreational activities on the three local campuses are open to the public throughout the year. Sidewalk restaurants, pubs, coffee houses and the quaint downtown shopping district are within three blocks of MU.
