Kansas City Alumni Chapter

The Kansas City Alumni Chapter is an active one. Whether we’re welcoming students at our annual Student Send-Off, hitting the course for the Golf Fore Scholarships tournament, or checking out a local brewery you can bet we’re always keeping busy!

If you’re new to the area or just miss your days at Truman, you’ve come to the right place. While we’re always ready to go out and explore the KC metro area, part of our hearts are still in good ol’ Kirksville. Discover new things to do in KC while enjoying the company of your fellow Bulldogs!

After graduation I moved to a new metro area. Connecting with other alumni in the Kansas City area has helped me discover some of the city’s best places for entertainment, shopping, dining and exploring. Joining the alumni chapter and participating in various events has been great because our Truman experience is an instant ice breaker.
