Thoughts from Admissions

  • More Than Your Test Scores

    September 10, 2014

    We often meet students whose concerns about being admitted to Truman are more extreme than necessary. Yes, we are academically rigorous.

That’s why we require an open essay, and strongly encourage an activities list […]

    August 7, 2014

    Hi my name is Mary Ward, Regional Admission Counselor for Truman State University with my primary recruitment territory being the state of Illinois.

  • Wolf Pack Party

    July 11, 2014

    Ah-oooooo! This a hearty hello from West Campus Suites, the newest and most spacious residence hall on campus. Although we’ve gone through a handful of mascots (womats…walri…), we are currently the Wolves and hoping it sticks–you’ll learn soon enough as you start your college journey, but it can be hard finding yourself. Between our forest green […]

  • At the Heart of Gremlins

    June 30, 2014

      New Gremlins, welcome to Grim Hall, home to about 60 residents. Grim is unique in that it has the most character as a building. The front of the hall used to be a house, which is still evident in the architecture; the rest of the hall is an extension that compliments the original architecture but […]
