A highlight of the latest issue of Otago Connection is the University's annual Christmas video - which this year features Lani Alo.

Only 11 more days until Christmas! That means it’s time for the year’s final issue of the Otago Connection e-newsletter to go out and with it the much-anticipated release of Otago’s annual

Christmas video


Along with heartfelt holiday wishes from Vice-Chancellor Professor Harlene Hayne, this year’s video features the immensely talented Lani Alo, an Otago music student, performing his own rendition of Silent Night on stage at Marama Hall.

Otago Connection is the Vice-Chancellor’s news site and e-newsletter to parents, whanau and friends of Otago students. The latest e-newsletter is packed with a selection of student stories and highlights of life at Otago that featured on the website over the past few months.

In this issue, we bring you stories about the inaugural College Colours Awards, an interview with the Master at Knox College, fun and games at the Career Development Centre, the story of an Otago Politics student who became the youngest person to be elected here in Dunedin during the recent local body elections, and since it’s graduation season as well, we thought we’d take a peek at the history behind the academic dress hire rooms.

The Otago Connection website is refreshed with new stories throughout the year with the e-newsletter delivered three times per year. Staff wishing to add their name to the Otago Connection mailing list should contact
