Weekday Visits

Weekday Visit Request Form

During a weekday personal visit, you meet with an Admission Counselor who can answer your questions about financial aid, major or academic interests, extracurricular activities, residence life, and the application process. Guided campus tours visit the residence halls, academic buildings, and recreational areas. You can even stop by the University Bookstore in the Student Union Building to purchase Truman apparel.

If classes are in session the day you visit, you can request to meet with a professor. At Truman, our professors are recognized for their dedication to teaching and are motivated to help you reach your potential. Other appointment options include conversations with athletic coaches, lunch on campus, and class observations. Plus, Truman has a number of student service offices that you can visit while on campus. Want to learn more about our Career Center? Are you interested in Study Abroad opportunities? We will work to accommodate all of your appointment requests so that your weekday visit is as unique as your interests.

Saturday Visits

Saturday Visit Request Form

Each Saturday Visit includes a presentation by an admission counselor and a walking tour of campus led by a student. Please allow around two hours for your Saturday Visit.

Note that Saturdays Visits are separate from the Saturday Showcase Events and special appointments are not available during a Saturday Visit. If it is important for you to meet with a faculty member or with another campus office, consider attending a Saturday Showcase Event or weekday personal visit instead.

Virtual Tour

Why Truman


The best part about Truman is how small, intimate, and personal every aspect of the school is. It’s rare to walk from class to class and not wave to at least one or two people or have your professor not know your name; you feel like you have a distinct purpose on campus, rather than just another random student.
