Truman Turns 30
After three decades, it’s time for Mizzou’s lovable mascot to embrace grownup life.
The big 3–0 is a major milestone for any Tiger. For Truman the Tiger, “born” in September 1986, the birthday warrants a massive Mizzou celebration.
As he prepares for the big day, Truman is doing some serious adulting. He’s embracing a healthy lifestyle. He’s setting career goals. And, of course, he’s taking on a little party planning. (Spoiler: Lots of black and gold balloons.)
Students can celebrate with Truman 10:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, in the MU Student Center. All Tigers are invited to a special halftime birthday celebration at the first home game of the season, Sept. 10. Follow the weekend’s festivities in social media: #Truman30.
Here’s a peek at a typical day on campus as Truman gets ready for a new year.
