Truman Battle of the Bands raises funds for new playground

Truman State University students involved in Greek life put on a “Battle of the Bands” event as part of Greek Week on campus.

Members of Greek Life also cooked up treats for hungry concert goers to enjoy at the show as part of a cooking competition. The group hoped to raise over $18,000 and Truman Greek Life Philanthropy Coordinator Kevin Mckenna said they have already exceeded that goal.

Truman Looks to Expand Opportunities Abroad

Truman administrators are working with their regional counterparts to explore possible options for offering Truman’s Master of Arts in leadership online to students. These options include the possibility of offering select coursework in one or more possible elective tracks, including content from Truman’s existing graduate certificate in sustainability and environmental studies, as well as select coursework in other fields in which regional partners have expressed interest.

With hopes of expanding academic cooperation with institutions abroad and increasing enrollment in select Truman graduate programming, University President Troy Paino traveled to the Balkans and brokered a deal with the European Center for Peace and Development (ECPD) in October.

Important notes from Athletics:

With the NCAA Division II National Tournament about to get underway, we think it's important to celebrate our team's recent accomplishments! This season we went 16-11 after we graduated 3 starters and 42% of our scoring from our 2013-14, 22-9 team. We actually entered the GLVC Tournament as a the 6th seed, one year after entering as the 7th seed. Coach Eagan has directed the program to the best two year start of any Truman State University Women's Basketball Coach (38-20), an...d one of our three seniors, Allie Norton, broke and set numerous records this past season. Those records include, but are not limited to: Tying the most number of games played, tying the most number of games started, earning all conference three different years, and setting a new record for three pointers made in a career! Read more about Allie, here: http://trumanbulldogs.com/news/2015/3/4/WBB_0304155919.aspx. Allie Norton, and our other two seniors, Sarah Gaeddert and Allison Wiese will truly be missed. Thank you to our family, fans, and all of our supporters who came to games, sent thoughtful notes and e-mails, donated to our different fundraising efforts and for all of you that just embraced Bulldog Women's Basketball this past season. Thank you so much. We look forward to continuing the journey with you very soon! ‪#‎TSUWBB‬ ‪#‎TSUFamily‬ ‪#‎Dawgs‬ See More http://ow.ly/KjbsR
