“Tea Time” Talks Freshman Year and Deserted Island Preparation

University President Sue Thomas welcomed Tai Woods for a recent episode of “Tea Time with Sue.”

A psychology major from St. Louis, Woods is completing her freshman year at Truman. She is a member of the Student Activities Board, TruSisters and the Association of Black Collegians. Woods shared her journey to Truman, including how she and her family fell in love with the campus when they visited. Coming from a large city, she appreciates Kirksville is not as “loud” as her hometown, and she particularly enjoys how Truman’s smaller class sizes have allowed her to get to know her professors.

Already an active member of campus, Woods shared several items that remain on her Truman bucket list, which includes participating in club volleyball, taking a role in a play, joining an a cappella group, serving as a peer mentor and studying abroad. The discussion also included a surprise regarding what items to take to a deserted island.

The entire podcast conversation can be found on the Truman Spotify channel. Follow Truman on social media for video excerpts from “Tea Time with Sue.” The complete video is also posted on the Truman YouTube channel.

Throughout the school year, President Thomas will welcome guests for one-on-one chats that shine a light on the people and things that make Truman the special place it is. New episodes will be announced in the Truman Today as they become available. Guests for “Tea Time with Sue” can be nominated at truman.edu/teatime.
