All alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago are invited to two very special events that take place the weekend of Homecoming…

  • Homecoming Weekend/Friday Night: Plan to attend the Bulldog Forever Banquet which includes a Golden Alumni Diploma Ceremony. For this ceremony,  you have the option of reliving graduation day by donning a graduation cap and gown and being presented with a commemorative 50-year diploma.
  • Homecoming Weekend/Saturday: Before the Homecoming football game, you are invited to another special event — the Golden Alumni Class Reunion Luncheon.

One of the best times to visit campus is in the fall to celebrate one of the University’s oldest traditions—Homecoming. Plan to reunite with friends for a chance to share your favorite college memories, see what campus looks like these days, and look for familiar faces around town.

If you’re looking for an excuse to show your Bulldog pride, you can join in on National Truman Spirit Day no matter where you live. Each year, the University encourages all alumni and friends to unite and show their Bulldog spirit on the first Friday in October.

Sponsored by the Alumni Association and local alumni chapters, student send-offs are our way of welcoming new students to the Bulldog community. These events take place during the summer, a few weeks before students head to campus for the school year. Whether you’re a new student, current student, alumni or family member, you’re invited.
