Welcome Alumni

The Department of Theater is a massive community that includes not only current faculty and students, but also the many who have walked these halls in days gone by. Our graduates have gone on to make names for themselves across the country (and elsewhere!), but wherever you are now, you are still an important part of what we are.

Our success thrives as a result of yours, and we'd love to know what you've been doing since we last saw you. We celebrate each story we receive from our alumni about the careers and lives they've made for themselves after graduation, so please keep in touch with us and fill us in on all of those details we look forward to reading!

Distinguished Alumni Award

This award is presented during the Academic or Summer season to a Department of Theater Alumnus who has made significant contributions to the discipline of theater or to the department specifically. A plaque/platter is presented to the recipient at a performance, or during the CoLA Alumni Appreciation Day. The recipient’s name is inscribed on a plaque located in the McLeod Theater Lobby.
