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 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 Office of Admission!
Personal VisitsPersonal Visit Request Form
During a weekday personal visit, you can meet with an admission counselor to discuss your interests and goals. Our admission counselors will answer your questions about financial aid, major or academic interests, extracurricular activities, and residence life.
Campus tours are guided by our informative student ambassadors and 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. Our walking campus tours typically last an hour and a half.
When scheduling your visit, you can request to meet with a professor. At Truman, our professors are recognized for their dedication to teaching and they help you reach your potential as research mentors, academic advisers, and career counselors. If you request a classroom visit, you will see how you can fit in as a student at Truman by engaging in lively discussions. 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? You can even request a meeting with representatives from many student organizations. Can't decide on just one meeting? We will happily make multiple appointments for you!

"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
