This year’s event had the focus of celebrating the University’s 150th anniversary and Pro- Chancellor, Stephen Higgs, spoke not only about the University’s distinguished past but also its current state and equally exciting future.

Philippa Keaney spoke about her recently published book “Audeamus! We Dare!” which explores the history of the Otago University Students’ Association (OUSA) 1980 -2015. Philippa’s presentation flowed through important national events during this time. Many of which shaped the OUSA and its activities and triggered memories and stories from the audience. It was an opportunity to reflect on the contribution of OUSA and of our own student days.

As the evening wore on, memories and stories were shared and all enjoyed being amongst others who understand the Otago spirit and way.
