Speaker and host, Deputy Prime Minister and alumnus the Hon. Grant Robertson entertained guests with memories of his time as a student and thoughts about how the University had progressed.
Guests who attended the 2021 Wellington alumni event held at the beautiful Grand Hall in Parliament on 14 July all found something in his speech that reminded them of their own time at university.
Grant touched on his time as Otago University Student Association's President and provided guests with the same advice as he did as president; “Take it easy but, take it”.
The current and future were also featured when the University's Chancellor, Dr Royden Somerville QC and Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Helen Nicholson spoke about the current developments at the University and thanked everyone for their support of the University during 2020 as, like all institutions, changes needed to be made to support our students and researchers.
Many memories and stories were told and shared as guests enjoyed once again the strength of the Otago spirit.
