Alumni Update

Join Maggie Beer AM DUniv, Barry Humphries AO CBE DUniv, and Gavin Wanganeen


Work has begun on the Great Hall - the superbly designed ceremonial, sporting and major events venue that will become a new heart of the University - a place where thousands of memories will be made.

You are invited to be a part of it. Your name and three words to live by can be permanently embedded in the very DNA of the Great Hall to become part of its story, and forever part of its history.

Already hundreds of graduates, students, staff and supporters have donated AUD $1,000 to have their name and three words to live by permanently etched into one of three sculptural features of the Great Hall.

Recent UniSA Honorary Doctorate recipient and one of Australia's best loved cooks, Maggie Beer AM DUniv, has shared her three words that will appear in the Chandelier of the Great Hall - Appetite for Life.

Another name that you could be mingling with is the inimitable Barry Humphries AO CBE DUniv. His words – It wasn’t me - are just like the man himself, priceless!

Brownlow Medallist, premiership player, five-time All-Australian, Port Power best and fairest, and the first Indigenous AFL Life Member, Gavin Wanganeen, chose - Courage, Humility, Happiness.

To join Maggie, Barry and Gavin and become part of the Great Hall, you can choose to give a single donation of AUD $1,000, or make a regular giving pledge starting from $55 per month via a valid credit card. All the funds raised through this initiative will support future student facilities through UniSA’s 25th Birthday Fund.
