1968 Golden Jubilee

Every year, the University of Adelaide is proud to welcome back alumni to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation.

On Wednesday 24 October, the Class of 1968 were once again welcomed into the folds of the University as they celebrated the 50th anniversary of their graduation in a special Golden Jubilee event.

Arts, Agricultural Science, Engineering, Economics, Law, Medicine, Music, Physiotherapy, Science, Pharmacy and Education graduates were re-united as friends reminisced on years gone by and shared cherished memories. For the Diploma graduates, this was their first time celebrating their graduation.

The ceremony was followed by a lunch at the National Wine Centre where Keith Conlon OAM employed his fantastic MC skills, prompting fellow graduates to share their stories from time spent around the Cloisters, the Refectory, Union Hall, Unibar and PROSH.

1968 Class gift

Each year, the class celebrating their Golden Jubilee are invited to make a gift in honour of this special anniversary. Golden Jubilee Class Gifts support Augustus Short Scholarships at the University. With a contribution to your Class Gift, you are directly supporting high achieving students from rural or remote areas who face financial disadvantage. Your gift will make a real difference to young scholars who would otherwise struggle to accept their place at our University. Will you join your classmates and make a gift today?
