Admitted Student Event

Congratulations from the entire Truman State University community!

We’re committed to welcoming you to our beautiful campus to celebrate your acceptance! Our Admitted Student Events are limited and will have safety precautions in place to ensure you and your guest feel welcomed and safe on our campus.

It is our goal to support you throughout the process by providing you with the information you need to be prepared for the Fall. Truman is excited to bring an Admitted Student Event right to you! Truman is home to five schools that house our 49 majors. Each school will be hosting an Admitted Student Event! Please register for the School event that houses your academic area of interest.

These events will provide a great opportunity to learn about next steps, connect with current students, and hear from faculty in your major—right from the comfort of your own home! These live options will allow you to meet our community and ask any questions you have to make that final decision to become a Bulldog.


Register for an Admitted Student Event

Each event is limited to 50 registrants. Attendees may only bring one (1) guest with them. See our safety precautions below. 

Thinking about double-majoring or still exploring your options? We invite you to select the Admitted Student Event that you are most curious about. Email visit@truman.edu or call (660) 785-4135 to set up an individual Zoom meeting with an academic interest area that you may not get to learn about during your Admitted Student Event.


Tentative Schedule of Events

The entire Admitted Student Event will last approximately 3-4 hours. Each Admitted Student Event will be a bit different, but you can generally expect the following information to be included:
Welcome 
Hear about the overview for the event and receive a warm welcome and congratulations from President Sue Thomas.
Academic Programming
Faculty members from each academic area of study are excited to share more about their program and how it prepares students for their future! There may be livestreamed facilities tours of labs, classrooms, or other special spaces or a panel of current students and faculty members.
Residence Life & Student Life Presentations
Learn about our variety of Residence Hall options, as well as the numerous student life and involvement opportunities to find your community here.
Becoming a Bulldog
Learn about the Next Steps and what to expect as you prepare for the Fall.

Event Safety Precautions

While the pandemic has disrupted much of our daily lives, we know it has caused a unique disruption in the college search process for high school seniors and their families. We understand the importance of being able to see campus in-person, speak with your future professors, and feel the sense of community for yourself.

Our top priority is safety of all those in attendance. Please review our safety precautions:

  • Registration volume is limited based on event space to maintain proper social distancing.
  • Registrants may only bring one (1) guest with them.
  • Seating in the event space will be sanitized prior to use.
  • Per campus policy, we ask that facial coverings are worn at all times indoors, as well as outdoors where social distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Please complete a self-symptom check prior to your arrival. If you feel unwell on your event day, please contact us immediately and we’d be happy to set-up a different visit option for you in the future.
