Wednesday, 5 Dec 2018

* Thousands to visit Wagga Wagga for six CSU 2018 graduation ceremonies on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 December

* Nearly 800 graduates from 15 Schools in three CSU Faculties to be celebrated

Charles Sturt University (CSU) will host six graduation ceremonies in Wagga Wagga on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 December.

These are part of the wider graduation season during December across all main campuses as well as in Parramatta (for School of Theology) and the two CSU Study Centres in Sydney and Melbourne.

The season starts on Monday 10 December in Wagga Wagga, and concludes in Albury-Wodonga on Wednesday 19 December.

Approximately 795 students will graduate across all ceremonies at CSU in Wagga Wagga, and thousands of family members and friends will celebrate the achievements of the students.

Acting Head of Campus at CSU in Wagga Wagga Mr Aaron McDonnell said, “Nearly 800 graduates will receive their testamurs from the University in Wagga Wagga this year, and we congratulate our graduating professionals on the successful completion of their studies.

“Sometimes we can get caught up with the busy-ness of the end of the year, so it’s wonderful to be able to stop and take the time to reflect and congratulate the many students who are graduating, and celebrate their achievements.

“Anyone who has completed a long-term project or achieved a long-awaited goal will understand the sheer joy and excitement of a graduates at the moment they shake the hand of the Vice-Chancellor and receive their hard earned testamur.

“The testamur our graduates will receive at the graduation ceremonies is their key to future success. Not only is it an important marker in their lives, an achievement they should be proud of, but it will unlock new opportunities for them. For some it will mean a new career, others it will mean they are one of many CSU graduates who will earn the highest paying salary of any graduate in the nation.”
