Admitted Student Event

Congratulations from the entire Truman State University community!

We’re are thrilled to extend a special invitation to our Admitted Students to welcome you to our beautiful campus to celebrate your acceptance! It is our goal to support you throughout the process by providing you with the information you need to be prepared for the Fall. These events will provide a great opportunity to learn about next steps, connect with current students, and hear from faculty in your major. This is a great time to meet our community and ask any questions you have to make that final decision to become a Bulldog.

Along with making great connections, spending a fun day on campus, and getting some free swag (of course)!
