The presentation of awards will be to graduates from the Faculty of Arts and Education, Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences, and Faculty of Science at the 3pm ceremony held at the Derek Pigot Auditorium at Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange.

Head of Campus at CSU in Orange, Dr Heather Robinson, said, "Graduation is one of the highlights of the academic year. I am pleased to help celebrate the achievements of graduands at Orange and wish them success as they join the professions for which they have trained."

A graduate of particular distinction is Orange resident Ms Helen Margaret Barnett who will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (major in nutrition), and a University Medal. Ms Barnett is a professional opera singer who worked with Opera Australia on and off for 15 years, but with a young family in Orange found it wasn't feasible in the long-term. With health and nutrition as her other real interest and passion, she decided to go back to university to become a dietitian. Ms Barnett received the annual Deans Award each year of her CSU studies, and also received the biochemistry prize for 2015. She will deliver the student 'Vote of Thanks' address at the ceremony.

Another CSU in Orange graduate of distinction is Ms Valentina Jones who will graduate with 1st class Honours in physiotherapy.

CSU Council member Mr Jamie Newman will be the Presiding Officer at the ceremony, and the Occasional Address will be delivered by Professor Lesley White, Executive Dean of the CSU Faculty of Arts and Education.

The ceremony will take place at the Derek Pigot Auditorium, Kinross Wolaroi School, Bathurst Road, Orange NSW.
