First Graduation Ceremony
To mark the 50th anniversary of the First Graduation Ceremony of the University, the USQ Historical Archives has mounted the “50 Years of the First Graduation at USQ Exhibition”.
On the 4th of April of 1970 the Queensland Institute of Technology Darling Downs (QITDD) held its first graduation of 25 students. The College Medallist was Peter Albion who was later to become a long-serving academic.
The exhibition showcases:
- Newspaper clippings
- QITDD course brochures
- Documents related to the organisation of the event
The 'First Graduation Ceremony' exhibition can be seen on the 3rd level of the USQ Toowoomba Library near the student computer area.
