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.
