• DC Reunion - Nov. 12, 2022

Who do our graduates become?

A professor of Japanese literature in Ann Arbor, a photographer in San Francisco, a banker in Bangkok, a deputy press attache at the U.S. Department of State, a Ph.D. in genetics right here in St. Louis—anything you can imagine. And the liberal-arts foundation they received at TJ has served them well beyond college and graduate school.
