Spirit Day Photo Contest Sets the Stage for Homecoming


Celebrated on the first Friday of October, this year’s Spirit Day is Oct. 5.

Students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends are encouraged to wear purple or other Truman gear to show their support for the school. No matter where, fans can stay connected to the Bulldog Community by participating in Spirit Day and the “Bulldogs Biggest Fans” photo contest.

As part of this year’s Spirit Day festivities, the “Bulldogs Biggest Fan” photo contest on Facebook offers a chance to win a VIP Homecoming Package. The package includes: four tickets to the Bulldog Forever tailgate; four tickets to the football game; four Truman Homecoming T-shirts; Bulldog Forever koozies; and one hotel room for Oct. 12-13. Bulldog fans can take the following steps to enter:

Step 1: Take a picture displaying Truman pride in celebration of National Truman Spirit Day.

Step 2: Send photos to bulldogforever@truman.edu by 11:59 p.m. during National Truman Spirit Day, Oct. 5.

Step 3: All pictures will be uploaded to an album titled, “Bulldogs Biggest Fan 2018” published by the Truman State University Alumni Facebook page. Voting will take place from the morning of Oct. 6 to Oct. 10 at 5 p.m. The picture with the most “likes” and “shares” will win.

Each participant has an unlimited number of submissions. For more information, visit the Spirit Day website.

After concluding the photo contest Oct. 10, Truman’s Homecoming will be shortly after, Oct. 12-14, with a variety of events. Bulldog fans are encouraged to visit campus as Homecoming is a time to gather with old friends and create new memories.

Alumni, family and friends can attend annual events such as the tailgate, parade, athletic events, Golden Alumni Reunion Luncheon, Alumni Leaders Conference, Bulldog Forever 5K run/walk and the Bulldog Forever Banquet. The weekend features additional events such as campus tours and planetarium shows, to name a few. The schedule is being updated regularly, so check online for updates.
