  • Theatre to Perform “Dancing at Lughnasa”

    TheatreStockImages6Feb2024-6 - Truman Today.jpg

    Truman’s Theatre Department will perform “Dancing at Lughnasa” by Brian Friel at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22-24 and 2 p.m. Feb. 25 in the James Severns Theatre.

    “Dancing at Lughnasa” is set in 1936 rural Ireland and follows the lives of five unmarried sisters trying to make ends meet. During the festival of Lughnasa, an ancient Celtic harvest celebration, the family’s struggles are interrupted by colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the larger world. This memory play, told from the perspective of one of the sister’s seven-year-old son, reveals the family’s resilience in the face of change. Widely regarded as Friel’s masterpiece, this haunting play is his tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.

    This play is directed by Randall Bame, lecturer in theatre. Bame has worked on many shows at Truman, including last spring’s performance of “The Mousetrap,” which received two awards at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival in January.

    The five Mundy sisters are played by five actors in the Theatre Department. The oldest sister, Kate, is played by Molly Laiben, sophomore French major. The show has two actual sisters playing the role of two of the Mundy sisters. Caroline Million, senior theatre major, plays the role of Maggie, and Anna Million, English pre-MAE sophomore, plays Agnes. The next sister, Rose, is played by Savannah Carmichael, senior creative writing and theatre major. Lastly, the youngest sister, Christ, is played by Anna Markewicz, senior theatre major.

    In addition to the five sisters, there are three more integral members of the cast. Aidan Grantham, senior sociology major and theatre minor, plays Jack, the brother of the Mundy sisters and the uncle to Michael. Michael is Chris Mundy’s son, and is played by Patrick Vincent, senior theatre major. Lastly, Gerry Evans, Michael’s father, is played by Parker Shinn, sophomore English and theatre major.

    This play is directed by Randall Bame. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at boxoffice.truman.edu. For more information, contact the Truman Theatre Box Office at 660.785.4515 between 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

During this multiyear path, schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to achieve their mission and align with AACSB’s accreditation standards.

    Established in 1916, AACSB is the world’s largest business education alliance, connecting educators, learners and businesses to create the next generation of great leaders. With members in more than 100 countries and territories, AACSB fosters engagement, accelerates innovation and amplifies impact in business education.

  • Financial Aid Office Ready to Assist Students with New FAFSA Guidelines


    In the wake of massive changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) this year, Truman’s Financial Aid Office is available to help students navigate the process and receive the maximum amount of support.

    All students in need of financial assistance are encouraged to complete the FAFSA. Federal Student Aid is the largest provider of financial aid for college students in the United States. Even though a student may not qualify for grants or work-study, all students are considered for the Federal Direct Loan (no co-signer required). Filing the FAFSA does not commit students to taking a loan, but it does allow for more options.

    The 2024-25 FAFSA will use 2022 tax year information with a priority deadline of April 1, 2024 for Missouri residents. It is strongly recommended to apply or renew before April 1 Details about the FAFSA can be found online at studentaid.gov.

    Truman’s Financial Aid Office is currently working on details of when aid offers will be available for new incoming students as well as current students. This year it will most likely be later this spring.

    For families that would like support to file their FAFSAs, the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development will host a FAFSA Frenzy event from 5-7 p.m. March 12 at the Kirksville Jobs Center located at 2105 E. Normal Ave. For information about other FAFSA Frenzy events throughout the state, click here.

    In lieu of FAFSA February Help Week, MOCAN staff and colleagues will provide virtual FAFSA support from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Feb. 20-22 via Zoom. Students, families, counselors and college access professionals can attend the event to get one-on-one assistance with FAFSA completion or have any other FAFSA questions answered. Registration is not required.

    In celebration of Financial Aid Awareness Month, the Financial Aid Office in McClain Hall 103 will have free candy available. Students are encouraged to visit the office and discuss any questions they may have about financial aid. Along with processing the FAFSA to determine federal, state and some University funds, the office provides information about scholarship service and renewal for returning students. They can also help with private scholarship check processing, funding for study abroad or summer school, budgeting, financial literacy or loan counseling.

    For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office at 660.785.4130 or finaid@truman.edu. The Financial Aid Office website also has a variety of helpful resources for students and their families.

  • TechByte - Anti-Malware Software Update

    Truman utilizes a layered approach to help fight off viruses and malicious software that tries to disrupt University-owned workstations on campus. This is done, in part, by using anti-virus and anti-malware software.

    What is the difference between anti-virus and anti-malware?

    A virus is code that is capable of copying itself in order to damage computers and other systems, including corrupting systems or destroying data. Malware is a term used to cover malicious software, trojans, worms, adware, ransomware, spyware, other modern exploits and sometimes even viruses. To date, Truman has utilized both of these tools to help secure systems. However, with advances in the use of artificial intelligence to help fight security threats, some changes are being made to better protect workstations on campus.  

    The first step in this change is to consolidate the anti-virus and anti-malware software running on Windows workstations. The SentinelOne software installed on Windows systems last year can now handle both anti-virus and anti-malware threats, so MalwareBytes will be removed from all Windows systems. As a side benefit, this should result in better system performance.

    Once the change to MalwareBytes is complete, the next step will be to update/enhance the software used to protect MacOS workstations. More information will be provided to those running MacOS workstations in the near future.
