Arizona Alumni Chapter

Arizona Alumni Chapter
The Arizona Alumni Chapter is unlike any other. Members consist of recent grads looking for a new adventure, families enjoying the desert heat, and snowbirds trying to flee the harsh Missouri winters!

The Chapter events are unique and catered to people of all ages and interests. Hike up Camelback, meet up for lunch and great conversation, or join one of the new exciting events being planned!

Find everything you loved about the Midwest out in the Arizona desert! There’s a Bulldog community waiting to make you feel at home, no matter how many miles we are from Kirksville.

I left Kirksville and moved 1,400 miles away. Joining the Arizona Alumni Chapter was great for celebrating the transition. Right away, I met new people with their own stories of Kirksville. Even though there is a wide variety of ages in our chapter, there are many shared memories.
