Over 100 Singapore-based alumni and friends of the University of Otago attended a celebration of the University’s 150th anniversary on 27 August at the Official Residence of New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Singapore, H.E. Jo Tyndall. It was a privilege to be welcomed to the event by the High Commissioner and to be able to hold the event in such a special venue.

The event was characterised by lively conversation amongst the guests as fellow students were recognised. Guests shared stories of Otago experiences and revelled in the opportunity to spend some time recalling memoires with others who had also studied in the same environment.

The Chancellor, Dr Royden Somerville QC, and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Helen Nicholson, spoke about the University’s illustrious past, and outstanding contributions to local, national and international communities, as well as providing information about current developments and plans for the future.

During the remainder of the evening, guests continued to reconnect with those who were at Otago at the same time as they were, and make new connections with other alumni.
