Mid-Missouri Alumni Chapter

The best part of living in the Mid-Missouri region? We’re close enough to Kirksville to head back for a Palonza, but able to bring the Bulldog spirit to other parts of Missouri. Whether you’re sharing your Bulldog pride at the State Capitol, sporting it around Columbia, or taking in Purple Friday wherever you are, there’s a Bulldog community waiting for you!

Join us for a picnic, try your hand at painting Red Barn Park, go with us to visit your state representative and say what’s on your mind, or give back to Truman students and the University at a service event. We’ve got an activity for everyone.
