  • Make Plans Now for On-Campus Housing

    RyleCafeteria6Oct2023-24 - Truman Today.jpg

    Students who want to live on campus during the 2024-25 academic year can start planning where they and their friends might like to reside.

    The housing portal is now open for students interested in living on campus during the 2024-25 academic year. Residence Life is offering new options for next year, including expanded pet housing and more deluxe doubles in some residence halls at the same price as a regular double room, as well as more single-occupancy availability.

    In former triple occupancy rooms in Blanton-Nason-Brewer Hall, which were rarely in demand, students will now have the option to secure a deluxe double room for the same price as a standard double. For upper-class students, Campbell Apartments will also offer single-occupancy options for the first time.

    “Returning students living on campus have more options than a first-year student because returning students self-select their room earlier,” said Jamie Van Boxel, director of Residence Life. “Returning students can group up with their friends to take over a section of a residence hall or a group of apartments in Campbell. Returning students also have the opportunity to live in larger rooms or in an on-campus apartment with more space with a roommate of their choosing.”

    On-campus housing will be available in Missouri Hall, Ryle Hall, West Campus Suites, Blanton-Nason-Brewer Hall and Campbell Apartments. Due to the Dobson Hall parking lot being utilized as a construction staging area, that hall will not be available. As a result, additional options will be available in West Campus Suites and, if needed, Missouri Hall.

    “From a community building standpoint, this will allow us to offer a better student experience,” Van Boxel said. “Having more students in some of our more in-demand locations and room types will give students more opportunities to meet one another, make friends and have access to a full range of services.”

    Pet housing will still be offered for the 2024-25 academic in the south wing of Blanton-Nason-Brewer Hall. The demand for pet-friendly housing has increased every year since the option was first offered in 2021. More information about pet-friendly housing can be found online.

    Students planning to live on campus are encouraged to submit their housing application as soon as possible. Room self-selection begins Feb. 15 for returning students and April 3 for new incoming students. More information regarding the room self-selection timeline can be found online here. Questions about the housing process can be directed to Residence Life at 660.785.4227 or reslife@truman.edu.
  • Alumnus to Serve as Keynote Speaker for Philosophy and Religion Conference


    The 33rd Annual Philosophy and Religion Conference will take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 11 in Baldwin Hall 114. At 1:30 p.m., alumnus Mark Lambert will deliver the keynote address titled, “A Horror of Moral Beauty: Leprosy, Religion and Public Health Debates.”

Prior to joining the DMU faculty, he was a postdoctoral teaching fellow at the University of Chicago in the divinity school and the college where he taught popular courses such as “Religion and AIDS” and “Indigenous Religions, Health and Healing.” Lambert studies the historical impact of stigmatizing diseases such as leprosy (Hansen’s disease), HIV/AIDS and mental illness upon already marginalized communities. His new research considers the historical development of osteopathic medicine, especially founder A.T. Still’s knowledge and adaptation of Native American therapeutics. Lambert’s work has appeared in Religion News Service, The Conversation and “Sightings.” 

    During the conference students from Truman and other universities will present original papers from a variety of topics in philosophy and religion. This event is free and open to the public.

Whether painful, lost or cherished, histories shape people’s lives and identities.

The works presented in this exhibition link to collective memories and the stories they carry through intergenerational histories and differing backgrounds. They will present a virtual artist talk from 6-7 p.m. Nov. 13 via Zoom.

    “I’ll be right here waiting for you to finish” by Emmett Ramstad is a site-specific installation utilizing paper towel dispensers, paper towels and tissue boxes to create an immersive experience for the viewer with familiar bathroom products.
