Dear alumni and friends

As the end of the year approaches, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all alumni and friends for your support in 2011.

Many alumni are assisting our students through mentoring and other programs, and supporting the University as ambassadors and donors – thank you.

You can look forward to more news and updates from your alma mater in 2012 and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events next year.

On behalf of the Alumni and Events team I would like to extend our best wishes for the festive season and the New Year.

With kind regards
Tracey Beck | Director, Alumni and Events Office
