Petia Jones and Fergal Foley-Brown celebrating their graduation from USC

A total of 1,700 students graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast at 11 ceremonies from 11-13 April in what was the biggest round of graduation ceremonies ever held on the Sunshine Coast.

The ceremonies included the presentation of medals to high-achieving students, and of honorary awards to those who have contributed to the success of USC and to the Sunshine Coast region.

Among the award recipients were philanthropists Roy and Nola Thompson who became Honorary Doctors of USC on Friday, and former USC Chancellor John Dobson who was presented with an Honorary Doctorate on Wednesday.

The University also celebrated its 20,000th graduate on Thursday, when Caloundra’s Renee Barber crossed the stage to receive her Bachelor of Social Work.

Videos of each of the ceremonies can be viewed online at the University’s website at: www.usc.edu.au/graduation/graduation-day

The graduate responses included some moving and entertaining speeches, including one by Bachelor of Laws graduate David Knobel, whose speech has already been viewed more than 8,000 times at www.facebook.com/unisunshinecoast/videos/1639929009395036/
