1970 and 1971 Golden Jubilee
Every year, we welcome back alumni to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation at their Golden Jubilee.
On Thursday 21 October 2021, both the Classes of 1970 and 1971 will be welcomed into the folds of the University as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation in a special Golden Jubilee event.
As part of your Golden Jubilee celebration, we invite you to participate in a re-enactment of your graduation ceremony in Bonython Hall. Just like the first time, the class of 1970 and 1971 will don academic dress and celebrate their accomplishments with family and friends. Following the ceremony, a light luncheon and campus tours will take place.
Help us find lost alumni
Over the years, we have lost contact with some of your fellow graduates. We would value your help in locating the alumni listed on the lost alumni list, so that we can reunite you with as many of your classmates as possible at the event.
The class gift
Each year, the class celebrating their Golden Jubilee is invited to make a gift in honour of this special anniversary. Golden Jubilee Class Gifts support Augustus Short Scholarships at the University. Contributing to your Class Gift means 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?
