      Bulldogs bark with pride at homecoming




      Itâ??s Homecoming at Truman State University and alumni are showing their Bulldog pride!


      The Truman Alumni Association has a number of events prepared for this year's Homecoming. They want to get as many alumni involved as possible.


      Friday night at 6 pm, an awards banquet recognized 30 Golden Alumni and six volunteer leaders. Three alumni were inducted into the Truman State Hall of Fame.



      With new additions to campus and with a move to the GLYC, association board members expect to bring in more alumni.

      â??It's different in many ways, we get to bring some alumni back that maybe haven't been back for a number of years, so every year is different. The experience is different, the boulevard has been dressed up, it's just going to be a wonderful campus experience, even for those of us who come back every year," said Keith Epperson, banquet emcee.



      All Truman alumni are encouraged to attend the weekend festivities. Below is a complete list activities.
