A&A Celebrates Graduates at Class Day 2024!

May 28, 2024

On Monday, May 27, the Department of Art & Archaeology celebrated our graduating Class of ’24 at the Carl Fields Center. 

Graduates and their families were greeted with a festive buffet and poignant slide show capturing moments throughout students’ years at Princeton.

Graduates received a bound copy of their thesis or a framed photograph of their senior exhibition.

Acting Chair of the Department of Art & Archaeology Professor Nathan Arrington welcomed the graduates and their families. He was joined by Director of Undergraduate Studies Basile Baudez and Director of the Program in Visual Arts Jeff Whetstone to highlight each student’s senior thesis and to award senior thesis prizes. 

A&A alumna Isabel Wilkinson '08 addressed the graduating class, drawing on her own path from journalism to starting her fashion brand, Attersee, always following the guiding principle that, as long as your choices feel authentic, "the key is just to start."

"I hope if there's one thing you've taken from this today, it's that a degree in art & archaeology from Princeton can truly lead you anywhere," said Wilkinson. 

History of Art graduates received a bound copy of their thesis, Practice of Art graduates received framed photographs of their senior exhibitions or film, and graduates who earned a Certificate in Archaeology received an embroidered field hat along with a Moleskin field journal.
