1970 and 1971 Golden Jubilee

On Thursday 21 October 2021, both the classes of 1970 and 1971 were welcomed back to the University to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation in a special Golden Jubilee reunion.

Former graduates were reunited at Bonython Hall as friends reminisced on years gone by and shared cherished memories. For the Diploma graduates, this was their first time celebrating their graduation. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a light luncheon and campus tours.

There is still time to donate to the Class Gift. First established by the Class of 1961, the Fund supports Augustus Short Scholarships at the University, and is a meaningful way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of your graduation.
