Beginning with the first Theater & Performance Studies Program Graduating Class of 2008, graduating Theater & Performance Studies majors, minors, and students who made theater and the Davis Center central to their Georgetown lives have been celebrated at the annual Senior Celebration. Each year, an Alumni is invited to deliver a keynote reflection to graduates as they prepare to venture into post-graduate life. This annual event has become a highly cherished moment in the lives of our students, parents, Alumni, faculty, and staff.
