YEARS of late-night study, challenging assessments and tough exams finally came to fruition as more than 110 graduands from La Trobe’s Shepparton campus had their long-awaited moment in the spotlight last Tuesday.
They gathered with family and friends to celebrate their years of study in a wide range of courses, from nursing to education, social work to business.
Shepparton head of Campus, Ms Elizabeth Capp, said graduation day highlighted the important role the University plays in regional communities.
“Today we celebrate students from a wide range of backgrounds, including TAFE pathway students, Indigenous students, students of diverse nationalities and cultures, and many who are the first in their family to attend university,” Ms Capp said.
“We are proud of our warm and inclusive campus, and the role we play in ensuring more regional students have access to higher education.”
