Join Your Student for Family Day
Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017
The annual tradition of Family Day at Truman State University welcomes parents and family members to campus for a weekend of special events ranging from Bulldog sporting events to a barbecue on the mall, as well as the annual Red Barn Arts and Crafts Festival downtown Kirksville. Plan to spend some quality time with your student, create some lasting memories, and most important of all, have lots of fun.
It is always very hard to find a hotel room for the weekend of Family Day. If you are able to drive in for Saturday only, your son or daughter will be most interested in updating you about the first month of school and replenishing supplies!
A schedule of events will be posted on this site in June 2017.
Parking for the Weekend
We’re delighted to have you on campus for the weekend. In honor of Family Day, you will not need a guest parking pass or a red, blue or green parking sticker to park in University parking lots on Friday, Sept. 15 through Sunday, Sept. 17.

"My favorite aspect of Truman is the sense of community. I love knowing so many people around campus and having so many great opportunities that I might not have at a larger university."
