Homecoming and Family Day Cancelled for Fall 2020


As part of the ongoing efforts of the University to limit exposure to and spread of the coronavirus, in-person Family Day and Homecoming activities for fall 2020 have been cancelled.

Family Day and Homecoming are typically two of the largest annual on-campus events. CDC guidelines still advise against large gatherings, and it is not logistically feasible to plan multiple events which would allow participants to maintain proper social distance.

The Student Affairs and Alumni offices are continuing to explore options for engagement on Family Day and Homecoming respectively. Possible Family Day options could include: virtual events, expanded care package options or other creative ideas. In lieu of in-person Homecoming activities, virtual events might consist of: a 5K, tailgate, trivia and the Bulldog Forever Forum for alumni leaders. Details on any alternative activities will be posted on the University website.

Truman is taking a number of steps to limit exposure to and spread of the coronavirus. In addition to in-person classes, many will be offered in alternative or hybrid delivery methods. The semester schedule has been altered to allow students to conclude in-person classes prior to Thanksgiving Break, thus eliminating extensive travel and potentially increasing the risk of exposure. Details on the fall semester are available at truman.edu/fall2020.
