Student Awards made possible by great support

Last week we celebrated the achievements of our students at the CQUniversity Student Awards. Recognising the hard work of our students is something we do every year however this time we did it a bit differently, electing to present the awards via video conference and including all of our campuses from Cairns to Melbourne, in the one celebration.

Sometimes, relying on technology for something so important can be a gamble, but our alumni relations, information technology and corporate events teams pulled it off without a hassle and I was thrilled with the results. It was the next best thing to having everyone in the same room.

As well as being thrilled with how the event ran I was also astounded by the students being recognised, especially among our first and second years. There will certainly be no shortage of talent for employers to choose from in the next few years if these students are anything to go by – well done to you all and congratulations to you and your families!

Of course when talking about student awards I cannot go past recognising our many generous partners and donors who make this event possible. Your contribution to CQUniversity and our students is appreciated immeasurably.

In some cases it is the support of our partners and donors that can make the difference between a student being able to attend university or not. In addition to relieving financial obstacles this generosity provides inspiration and motivation to students and instills self-confidence and belief, helping them to concentrate on their studies and enabling them to make the most of their potential.
