Semester’s over! Time to celebrate


You made it! See, we told you that you’d survive. The roller-coaster ride of emotions, study, assessment, time management struggles and exams, that we call semester is over. Welcome to summer break!

To everyone graduating this semester – congratulations!! We’ll miss seeing you around. Please keep in touch – you can easily stay connected as an alumni.

To everyone coming back next semester – congratulations for (1) surviving!, and (2) getting to return to the wonderful world of Griffith in February next year!
