Truman Week 2021
Your Truman journey is about to begin! Wednesday, August 18 is the official start of Truman Week for all new students. Truman week is a special time set aside to welcome you to the community and introduce you to the many aspects of being a successful student. The program is intentionally designed to create a smooth transition from your high school experience to college and from your family home to your Truman home for freshman students and distinguish your new experience at Truman from previous time at a college or university from which you have transferred.
Many faculty, staff, and current students will be on hand to help you become comfortable with your new surroundings, understand what to expect from your academic experience, and learn about campus resources and policies. You will have the chance to meet and start making connections with other students at the many activities and events scheduled during the week to help you start feeling at home and begin to enjoy campus life.
Many students will be moving into the residence halls on Wednesday, therefore daytime activities on the schedule are flexible, so we have suggested some important things to do that will help you be prepared for the first day of class on Monday, August 23, which have not been formally scheduled into the week, so even those who are commuter students this first year will want to be on campus Wednesday to take care of some of these items.
Truman Week events officially begin for all students on Wednesday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. (Commuter students may want to arrive at 6:45 so you have time to check in prior to the 7:00 pm event start). Click on the button below to generate your personalized schedule for Truman Week events.
