What is Tropaia?

“Tropaia” essentially means Trophy and the Tropaia Ceremony is the event at which individual schools distribute awards. Each Dean’s office will inform students individually if they are receiving an award at this event.

The word Tropaia is ancient Greek and referred to a monument constructed to celebrate a military victory.

Tropaia is a celebratory event that honors outstanding students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the School of Continuing Studies. At this event, select community members are presented with the Outstanding Student Award, Outstanding Faculty Award, and the Spirit of Georgetown Award.
