Truman Extends Tree Campus Designation
Truman was honored with 2019 Tree Campus USA recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to effective urban forest management.
“Tree Campuses and their students set examples for not only their student bodies but the surrounding communities showcasing how trees create a healthier environment,” said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Because of Truman State University’s participation air will be purer, water cleaner and your students and faculty will be surrounded by the shade and beauty the trees provide.”

Art is Life
“I’m attracted to both fibers and ceramics because as a discipline they both started as purely functional objects. There is no practical reason for people to add decoration to the surface of a pot or intricately sew patterns into cloth, and yet we do.”
For 31 years, Ron Rybkowski has been a fixture in the Theatre Department, however, casual fans of Truman productions can be forgiven if that sometimes slips their minds. Rybkowski does not long for the spotlight but relishes in helping others succeed.
A Way to Pass the Time
“There’s just something awesome about taking something tattered, torn, used, forgotten – these baseballs that have definitely seen better days, ones that most coaches would just throw away – and just turning them into beautiful pieces of art.”
