Admissions to Move to Ruth Towne Museum

Admissions Offices are scheduled to move over midterm break to the Ruth Towne Museum and Visitors Center at 101 East Normal.

Due to the process of physically relocating the operation to another building, the Admissions Office staff will only be available on a limited basis to assist prospective students and/or the University community March 9-10. If urgent assistance is needed during that time frame, please call 660.349.7644.

In addition to the Admissions Office, the 8,600 square foot multi-purpose facility will house the Ruth Warner Towne Museum, which will open later this year.

The facility has been financed through a combination of private gifts and University funds. The naming gift was received through a $1 million bequest from Towne in December 1999. Towne retired from Truman in 1988 as professor emeritus of history and dean emeritus of graduate studies following a 36-year teaching career at Truman.

Approximately 4,000 square feet will be devoted to the Museum. The space will also serve as an educational resource and learning environment for Truman students and professors, as well as regional school-age children.
