Louise Scott and family

First encounter leads to three degrees in family affair

Brisbane mum Louise Scott remembers fondly her first encounter with Griffith University. With her eldest daughter Alana preparing to leave high school and take the next step of her education journey, Louise had guided her around the university Open Day and expo circuit to ensure they had all the information needed in their search for the right engineering degree for Alana. Alana studied environmental engineering at the Nathan campus and was followed to Griffith by sisters Camilla who studied environmental science and Yasmin who studied primary education.

The courses at Griffith and the leadership and personal development opportunities offered by the Honours College provided the girls with worldly experiences which value-added to their resumes, making them most competitive as they entered the workplace.

Gary and sons

Brothers felt right at home through their Griffith studies

From the moment Garry Collins' eldest son Christopher walked into the South Bank campus during Open Day, the family felt right at home at Griffith. Chris studied Film and Screen Media production and graduated in 2014. Gary's younger son Nicholas has also had a life changing experience at Griffith initially studying Science at Nathan before transferring to a Bachelor of Marine Science at the Gold Coast.

For both my sons, studying at Griffith has been transformative helping them grow and become mature young men while also giving them the best pathway to pursue their chosen careers.
