THE University of the Sunshine Coast has held its largest ever Fraser Coast graduation ceremony.
Some 90 students received their degrees at the Brolga Theatre in Maryborough on Friday.
The event celebrated the academic achievements of students who completed their degrees over the past two years.
Many of the graduates were unable to attend their ceremony last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
USC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett said she was delighted students who graduated in absentia last year were able to experience a formal ceremony.
“Graduation is a tradition dating back to the 12th century and provides a wonderful opportunity for students to formally celebrate their accomplishments,” Professor Bartlett said.
“For their friends and family, lecturers and tutors and the wider Fraser Coast community, it is a time to share in the success of our students and to show them how proud we are of all they have achieved,” she continued.
