Arizona Alumni Chapter

The Arizona Alumni Chapter is unlike any other. Members consist of recent grads looking for a new adventure, families enjoying the desert heat, and snowbirds trying to flee the harsh Missouri winters!

The Chapter events are unique and catered to people of all ages and interests. Hike up Camelback, meet up for lunch and great conversation, or join one of the new exciting events being planned!

Find everything you loved about the Midwest out in the Arizona desert! There’s a Bulldog community waiting to make you feel at home, no matter how many miles we are from Kirksville.
