Fraser Coast students to celebrate academic milestone

13 Oct 2021

USC Fraser Coast’s latest cohort of graduating students, who have completed degrees during a pandemic, will formally celebrate their achievements tomorrow (Thursday 14 October).

About 20 USC students will receive their degrees at a graduation ceremony, which will officially begin at 4pm with an academic procession through the ballroom of the Beach House Hotel, Hervey Bay.

USC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett said this was a chance for the students to reflect on their academic journey and enjoy the rewards for their commitment to gaining skills and knowledge that would provide the foundations for future careers.

“USC is incredibly proud of the achievements of our graduating students, who have had to show additional resilience and determination dealing with the challenges and disruptions presented by the COVID pandemic over the past 18 months,” she said.

“For their friends and family, lecturers and tutors and the wider Fraser Coast community, it is a wonderful opportunity to share in their success.

“They will now join other USC alumni who have gone on to achieve impressive career goals and make a positive impact on the communities where they live and work.”

A number of high-achieving students will be recognised with USC Commendations for Academic Excellence at the ceremony.

Those who have made outstanding contributions to the University or wider community through co-curricular and service endeavours will receive USC Student Leadership Awards.
