Virtual Showcase Visits

Truman State University’s Virtual Showcases are visit events that provide prospective new students and families the opportunity to learn a lot about Truman State University from the comfort and safety of their homes. Sign up for one of our upcoming Virtual Showcase events and spend a day learning about the Truman experience.

Dates for Virtual Showcase Visits

Virtual Showcases were provided during the 2020-2021 Academic Year in an effort to limit the possibility of exposure to the coronavirus to the campus and Kirksville communities. Currently, there are no plans to offer Virtual Showcases during the 2021-2022 Academic Year.

We invite you to learn more and sign up for one of our in-person Saturday Showcase Events. If a virtual option is a better fit for you, we offer Virtual Visits each week.
