Head’s Cocktail Reception

Nena Sawyer and Reg Binding

Head of College, Dr Jennifer McDonald welcomed members of the College community to the Leitch Academic Centre and Gardens on Monday 16 October, 2017.

On a beautiful spring evening in the College gardens, which are in full bloom, students and resident tutors mingled with alumni, Governors, Fellows, Council and Committee members, volunteers and donors to celebrate the year that has been the College’s 80th Anniversary.

Dr McDonald thanked all donors and volunteers to the College insisting that it is their involvement that ensures the success of programs such as the UC Scholarship Program and Pathway’s Dinner.

Lala Grogan, a first year Arts student at the University of Melbourne and Student Club Executive member in 2017, spoke of her experience moving from Queensland to a new state and the benefits the College community has provided to enrich her time at university.

“Thank you to all of the alumni and community members who have volunteered their time and donated their money towards University College this year. For me, it has been a privilege to experience all that College has to offer and without your support, this would not have been possible.” Lala Grogan (UC 2017-)
