Saturday Showcase Events

Truman will not conduct in-person classes for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester in an effort to limit the possibility of exposure to the coronavirus to the campus and Kirksville communities. Previously scheduled Showcase events for March and April have been cancelled. We hope to resume Showcase events in Fall 2020. Please contact the Office of Admission to learn about Virtual Visit options at 660-785-4135 or
