A GROUP of former Warwick students donned mortarboard hats and flowing academic gowns recently to celebrate the outstanding achievement of graduating from the University of Southern Queensland.

Alexander Schoenfisch graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Business, while Jody Jarrett and William Reid both graduated with a Bachelor of Education.

The ceremonies, held at USQ's Toowoomba Campus, were the culmination of years of study and hard work, leaving the graduates with a highly-regarded qualification that will be recognised worldwide.

USQ vice-chancellor and president Professor Jan Thomas congratulated the students, welcoming them into the university's alumni of 70,000 graduates.

"An academic qualification from USQ is something that you will carry with you for the rest of your lives," she said.

"It will provide you with opportunities you might not have otherwise had, and it will set you on a professional path of opportunity.

"Today, as you graduate, I congratulate you and welcome you as a member of the USQ alumni."
