Eamon Foley, a member of the Class of 2015, was an anthropology major who also earned a certificate in theater. For his theater thesis, he blended his academic studies in ethnography — the process of studying a culture through observation and interviews — with his professional experience as a performer to create an original theater-dance piece titled "Hero." The show tells the story of a young man transformed by his experiences in the Vietnam War through indie rock music, dance and aerial choreography.
