BA, Communication – Truman State University
Austin graduated from Truman in May of 2017 with a BA in Communication, with a concentration in Journalism, and a minor in Photography. As a student, Austin was heavily involved with Truman Media Network, beginning as a news reporter for the Index during his first few weeks at Truman and ultimately serving as the newspaper’s Editor-In-Chief during his fourth year. Austin was also a dedicated member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and Phi Sigma Pi, a gender-inclusive national honor fraternity.
When he’s not in the office, Austin enjoys spending time with his friends and his kitten, Jasper. He also enjoys getting a little too invested in his fantasy football team, and making the occasional trip back to his native Kansas City to attend a Sporting Kansas City match whenever possible.
The Office of Admission welcomed Austin in August of 2017. Austin’s role includes meeting with visiting students on campus and traveling throughout Northeast Missouri.
