Becoming a Bulldog
An important step in preparing for your arrival as a new Truman student is to participate in one of nine orientation sessions. Designed to provide you and your family additional information and support for your transition to Truman, orientation is a required part of your Truman experience. There is no additional fee to attend the Summer Orientation session and attendance is required of all incoming freshmen.
Before You Come
Orientation packets are mailed in late March. This packet includes required forms for the Student Health Center, specific information about orientation, and directions on how to complete the Pre-Orientation Materials through TruView. Due to the individual attention provided by advisors, please complete all pre-orientation materials at least two weeks prior to your Orientation Session.
