DateTime.Parse("StringDATE").ToString("yyyy-MM-dd") is a shorthand way of doing it. you can modify the date format as you want.

One way is to use DateTime.TryParse and then the Date property. Consider the following
System.DateTime a;
if(System.DateTime.TryParse("2015-06-01t00:00:00", out a))

However, DateTime always contains the time portion so it's up to the code to use it or not.

In the real situation, just remember to check if the TryParse worked by investigating the boolean return value. See DateTime.TryParse[^]

You're welcome :)
I prefer using DateTime.TryParseExact to help ensure the month and day are never transposed due to an unexpected difference between regional settings in my local development environment and regional settings in the environment where the code might eventually run (e.g. a remote web server).

If the input string always follows the same pattern (e.g. "yyyy-MM-DDtHH:mm:ss") then my preferred solution looks like this:

var culture = new CultureInfo("en-US");
var input = "2015-06-01t00:00:00";
DateTime parsed;
if ( DateTime.TryParseExact(input, @"yyyy-MM-dd\tHH:mm:ss", culture, DateTimeStyles.None, out parsed ) )
  // parsed.Date contains the date part of the input string
  // Handle the unexpected format
