Upon entering the Courthouse, you will have to pass through security, which includes clearing a metal detector as well as an X-ray machine. Please note that you may bring a mobile phone into the building; however, you are not permitted to use the phone's camera function on the premises. The US Attorney’s office does NOT allow any electronic devices (other than cellphones) into its building.
For the past several years, the Truman Scholars Association (an organization of Truman Scholar alumni) has hosted pre-interview dinners in the interview cities the night prior to the finalist interviews. The dinners are informal, fun, optional events for the finalists and a few Truman alumni hosts (interview panelists do not attend). The dinner locations are chosen at relatively inexpensive restaurants close to the venue where the students will be interviewed, and each person attending the dinner covers his or her own meal and transportation expenses. All finalists will be contacted by their interview city’s Truman host shortly after the official finalist announcement on Friday, February 22nd; if you wish to attend the dinner, please plan to be available for dinner around 7 p.m. in your interview city the evening before your interview.
The DC II dinner host is Dan Birdwhistell. Please contact him at email@example.com for additional information.
