Albury-Wodonga students celebrate their studies at graduation

Years of hard work has paid off for 136 students at La Trobe’s Albury Wodonga campus as they have their achievements recognised at the campus’ graduation ceremony.

La Trobe University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Dewar AO, said the University is committed to providing access to higher education opportunities for regional students.

“Our Albury-Wodonga students have demonstrated incredible resilience and determination in overcoming the challenges of the past few years, and their achievements are truly worth celebrating," Professor Dewar said.

“We believe that by offering local higher education opportunities, we can help build thriving regional centres like Albury-Wodonga and we look forward to seeing our graduates make a positive impact in their communities."

Dr Guinever Threlkeld, Albury-Wodonga Head of Campus, said that the 136 students today will play an exciting role in strengthening the workforce and livelihoods of their local community.

“It’s been a pleasure to see our graduating students develop and learn tangible skills over the past few years and I look forward to following their journey in the years after university,” Dr Threlkeld said.

“We’ve seen many of our previous graduates going on to pursue careers locally, contributing to the workforce in schools, health services, scientific organisations, business, not for profits and the arts.

“Our first graduation was held in March 1992 in a marquee at the Wodonga Tafe campus. Since then, the Albury-Wodonga campus has educated over 7250 graduates from both undergraduate and postgraduate programs,” Dr Threlkeld said.
