The best way to learn about Truman is to visit us, and we do our best to make you feel welcome. You can start your visit by grabbing a cup of coffee or a bottle of water while you check out the exhibits in the Ruth W. Towne Museum and Visitors Center, which is also home to Truman's Admission Office.
During the week, a personal visit will allow you to meet an admission counselor who can talk with you about Truman before you join a student-led tour around campus. You’ll see academic buildings, residence halls, and hear about the legend of the Sunken Garden. You can also request a meeting with a faculty member or experience a class in your intended major.
Our Saturday Showcase Visit Events are designed to provide as much information about us in a one-day. You can tour campus, talk with faculty, attend an academic presentation, and see a current student’s residence hall room. And lunch is included.
You may also visit on a select Open Saturday. These visits are limited so you will need to contact our office directly.
Trying to plan a visit for a group of 12 or more? Learn more about what we can offer you.
The Office of Admission is available most weekdays, Monday through Friday 9:00 am - 3:00 pm for visits and tours. Have questions about your options? Give our Visit Coordinator a call at 660-785-4135 or email after hours at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"My favorite aspect of Truman is the sense of community. I love knowing so many people around campus and having so many great opportunities that I might not have at a larger university."
