Colorado Alumni Chapter

The Colorado Alumni Chapter provides alumni the chance to reminisce and network. The chapter is composed of people from all eras of Truman’s history and members go as far back as Northeast Missouri State Teacher’s College. It is a great way to learn about the history of Truman while making new friends and contacts.

The chapter provides many opportunities to see old and new friends. Events range from a day at the park playing the same lawn games as we did in Kirksville, to a day on the slopes skiing or snowboarding. New events and ideas are always welcome to cater to the many tastes and hobbies of the Truman Colorado Alumni.

The Colorado Alumni Chapter offers a home away from home. It provides mentoring for new graduates and an opportunity to network with new and old alumni.
