About Truman State University National Spirit Days
In 2011, the Truman Alumni Board of Directors started this tradition when they designated the first Friday in the months of April and October as Truman State University National Spirit Days. The idea was born from a spirit day initiated by Truman's Kansas City Alumni Chapter.
The purpose of Truman National Spirit Days is to promote Truman to prospective students; to give alumni and friends an opportunity to display their pride in their alma mater; and to create awareness of the University locally, nationwide and internationally.
"I love the easiness to get to know your professors and the resources that are available for students. It is easy to see the faculty’s dedication towards the students’ success, and I especially like that we are constantly challenged to be better. It can be very stressful at times, but it teaches you a lot."
