Jameson Nowlan (SFS’23), originally from Tucson, Arizona, is a culture and politics major with a theater and performance studies minor. On campus, she is a member of the Mask and Bauble Dramatic Society and Nomadic Theater. Beyond Georgetown, Nowlan worked with the Swedish Embassy to create cultural programs.
In addition to her senior year Diplomatic Ball, one of Nowlan’s favorite memories from her time on the Hilltop was waking up at 5am with her first year Proseminar to go listen to the impeachment hearings. She says, “It was so life-changing to be able to witness history firsthand, only a few months into my time at the SFS.”
Nowlan was able to be on campus in 2020 due to the housing stability program. During that time, some notable experiences included paying her respects to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she laid in state and witnessing the 2020 presidential election.
As she looks towards graduation, Nowlan remembers this message from a Hoya: “In the words of the late John Thompson Jr., ‘When I’m gone, if I can’t go to heaven, take me back to Georgetown.’”
