A Winning Welcome, No Matter the Score

The UMKC Dental Alumni Association welcomed another incoming dental class and dental hygiene class by taking them out to the ballgame. The DDS Class of 2023 and the Dental Hygiene Class of 2021 — along with students, staff, faculty and alumni — were all invited to the Kansas City Royals versus Oakland A’s game on Aug. 27. Everyone enjoyed a pre-game tailgate with burgers and brats before heading in to root, root, root for the home team. Even though the Oakland A’s won 2-1, the New Student Welcome game continues to be a loved tradition to kick off the academic year at the School of Dentistry.
