Your Personal Visit Request automatically includes meeting with an Admission Counselor and a tour of campus. We also encourage you to request other appointments. Below are some descriptions of other meetings we can request on your behalf.
Meet an Admission Counselor
During your scheduled personal visit, you'll meet with an Admission Counselor to discuss your interests and goals. Our counselors are experienced answering questions concerning financial aid, major or academic interest, extracurricular activities on campus, and residence life.
Guided by our informative Student Ambassadors, you will tour our residence halls, academic buildings, recreational areas, and the University Bookstore for some great Truman apparel. Tours are walking tours, typically lasting an hour and a half.
When scheduling your visit, you can request to meet with a faculty member in one of your interests areas. Our faculty are recognized for their dedication to teaching, and are excited about meeting prospective students. At Truman they are here to help you reach your potential not only as teachers, but as research mentors, academic advisers and career counselors. In addition, many faculty are active as advisers for student organizations and lead study abroad programs for students.
There is no better way to see how you will fit in a Truman than by engaging in classroom discussions on your visit. Discuss Voltaire in an English Literature course, or learn about Human Anatomy while deciding between being a Biology or Health Science major. Can't decide? We will be happy to make multiple appointments for you.
Truman has a number of student services that you can visit while on campus. Want to learn more about our Career Center's mission? Maybe you have in interest in meeting someone in our Study Abroad Office? You can also request a meeting with a number of student organization representatives.
Open Saturday Visits
The Admission Office also offers select open Saturday visits, separate from our Showcase Visit Events. These Saturday visits will provide you a meeting with an Admission Counselor and a tour of campus. Due to the nature of these visits, other meeting requests will likely not be available. You will need to call our office to discuss setting up one of these visits.
Dates available for your Open Saturday Visit are listed below. To set up this visit, please contact our Visit Coordinator directly at 660-785-4135 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
