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.
