August 2015

Rosanne Hunt

It's been an exciting time on campus, with the launch of our new Data Arena, our 360-degree data visualisation facility, as well as getting our name in lights on Broadway!

August is proving to be a bumper months of events – with a host of free public lectures on a range of topics and interest areas, and a fantastic opportunity to visit the campus. We're also preparing to say farewell to our Kuring-gai campus in November, so if you are a graduate or staff member please share your memories and photos, tell your colleagues and participate in our farewell activities.

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who gave to our UTS Annual Appeal, supporting the UTS Alumni Scholarship Fund – thanks to your generosity, we've had our most successful appeal ever, and will be able to provide essential financial support for a student in each of our faculties. There's still time to contribute to the appeal – find out how you can help students realise their dreams.

Kind regards,

Rosanne Hunt
Deputy Director, Alumni Relations and Communications
