Alumni Calendar

We make it easy for Truman alumni to stay connected with their alma mater with regular events on campus and around the country.

Alumni Events

Special events for alumni and friends range from sports outings, to philanthropic activities, to receptions held around the country. Check out our Calendar of Events to find upcoming events near you. Are you an alumni chapter or alumni club leader planning an alumni event? Use our Submit Event Form to send us the details.

Homecoming

Submit Event information

One of the best times to visit campus is in the fall to celebrate one of the University’s oldest traditions—Homecoming. Plan to reunite with friends for a chance to share your favorite college memories, see what campus looks like these days, and look for familiar faces around town.

Travel Programs

The Truman Alumni Association is proud to offer its Annual Alumni Group Travel Program so alumni, friends and all other members of the Truman family can explore the world together. Feeling adventurous? Check out TruAdventure, a Truman travel program that takes you off the beaten path.

 

National Truman Spirit Day

If you’re looking for an excuse to show your Bulldog pride, you can join in on National Truman Spirit Day no matter where you live. Each year, the University encourages all alumni and friends to unite and show their Bulldog spirit on the first Friday in October.

Annual Alumni Leaders Conference

The Alumni Leaders Conference is an annual meeting held during Homecoming where prospective Truman volunteers, chapter and club volunteers and board members come together to share ideas, learn new techniques and network with other Bulldogs.

New Student Send-Offs

Sponsored by the Alumni Association and local alumni chapters, student send-offs are our way of welcoming new students to the Bulldog community. These events take place during the summer, a few weeks before students head to campus for the school year. Whether you’re a new student, current student, alumni or family member, you’re invited!

Tailgates

Share the Bulldog Spirit and tailgate before football games! Many alumni chapters host tailgates while the Bulldogs are on the road, but now you can join in on the fun right here on campus. Click here for complete details and rules on campus football tailgates.  Please note the Bulldog Forever Homecoming Tailgate is in a different location!
