1973 and 1974 Golden Jubilee

In 2024, we welcome alumni from the graduating classes of 1973 and 1974 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduations.

In October 2024, the classes of 1973 and 1974 will be welcomed back to campus, as together we celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduations in a special Golden Jubilee event. This reunion coincides with the University's 150th celebration, giving us even more reason to commemorate.

The Golden Jubilee Reunion is a rare opportunity to reconnect with old friends and celebrate 50 years as a graduate of one of Australia’s finest universities.

Further information and a save the date will follow in the coming months, with a formal invitation and registrations opening mid next year. Ensure you update your details so you can receive an invitation to this special event.

1973 and 1974 class gift

First established by the Class of 1961, the Golden Jubilee class gift supports Augustus Short scholarships, which help high achieving students from rural or remote areas who face financial disadvantage. There is still time to join your classmates and make a gift.
