Since 1939, Homecoming has been a school tradition each fall except for 1942-1945 due to World War II.
Each year, when Truman State University celebrates the Homecoming tradition, the campus is buzzing with activities for visiting alumni. The Homecoming celebration occurs annually in October.
Homecoming Activities for Alumni and Friends
Oct. 10-12, 2014
During Homecoming, our lively and engaged graduates come back to campus to reconnect with classmates, former roommates, professors, and friends. And while they’re on campus attending Homecoming events throughout the weekend, they make new connections and create even more memories. The Homecoming festivities include: Tailgate, Parade, Pep Rally, 5K Run/Walk, Bulldog Sporting Events, Golden Alumni Class Reunion (for the Class of 1964 and all earlier classes), Golden Alumni 50-Year Anniversary Diploma Ceremony, Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, Department & Organization Receptions, and much more.
Whether it’s been years since you have been on campus or you just graduated, we look forward to having you back at Truman to celebrate the legacy you helped build. All alumni, families, and friends are invited to the Homecoming celebration. Alumni from all years, especially reunion years, are encouraged to stop by the Alumni Center (lower level of the SUB) to sign in on the message boards, register for FREE gifts and attendance prizes and then gather at the Bulldog Forever Homecoming Tailgate.
Tickets for the Homecoming Celebration Banquet are now available in the Alumni Store. A full schedule of events and registration information will be available soon.
Save the date for Homecoming 2015, Oct. 9-11!
"The care and concern that my professors have for their students is the best part of classes here. They come to class every day truly excited to teach their subject."
