Visit Truman

Now is the time to apply!

The best way to learn about Truman is to visit us!

Weekday Visits

Weekday Visit Request Form

During a weekday personal visit, you can meet with an Admission Counselor who can answer your questions about financial aid, major or academic interests, extracurricular activities, residence life, and the application process. Guided campus tours visit the residence halls, academic buildings, and recreational areas. You can even stop by the University Bookstore in the Student Union Building to purchase Truman apparel.

If classes are in session the day you visit, you can request to meet with a professor. At Truman, our professors are recognized for their dedication to teaching and are motivated to help you reach your potential. Other appointment options include conversations with athletic coaches, lunch on campus, and class observations. Plus, Truman has a number of student service offices that you can visit while on campus. Want to learn more about our Career Center’s mission? Are you interested in Study Abroad opportunities? We will work to accommodate all of your appointment requests so that your weekday visit is as unique as your interests!

Why Truman

Caroline Hamera2

The liberal arts and sciences have taught me not what to think, but how to think. I feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to sit and think and talk through complex ideas with the leaders in their respective fields. This university has prepared me, not for a specific career with one skill set, but the tools to succeed in an ever increasingly diverse and complex society.

Caroline Hamera, Communication Major/Spanish Minor
