Baldwin Hall Reopens After Renovations
Few buildings on campus have been around as long as Baldwin Hall, which will reopen for classes this fall following a yearlong renovation project.
The nearly 80-year-old building was offline for the entire 2016-17 academic year while major updates were completed. Unlike previous campus remodels and additions, the upgrades to Baldwin Hall were largely utilitarian and included new heating, air conditioning, lighting, plumbing, wiring, walls and flooring.

Sadie Williams is a good example of how students use their passions to shape their future. Growing up in Utah, she was always curious about history. A study-abroad trip to Argentina during high school ignited a passion for the Spanish language. By the time she began attending Truman, she knew she wanted to pursue both of these passions.
For Becca Elder, finding a way to combine her academic and personal interests was simple. Pursuing environmental studies, Elder found her niche promoting environmental awareness and encouraging her fellow students to consider sustainability in their everyday life decisions
