On the occasion of the University’s 25th Anniversary in 2014 this book unveils some of the significant and exceptional moments in the University’s past. The enterprising founders of Bond University had a great vision to deliver private higher education in Queensland. They created not only a new campus, but also a new regime in the arrangements of three full semesters per year, a carefully structured program of core subjects and the effective recruitment of international and domestic students. This book vividly presents Bond University’s inspired beginning, the strain of the early years, and its subsequent growth whilst showcasing special occasions and noting some extraordinary events and successes along the way. It beautifully celebrates Bond University reaching the milestone of twenty-five years and will capture the interest of anyone who opens its pages. Bond University: The first 25 years will be especially appreciated by those who have a personal affiliation with the University and make them justly proud of the University’s heritage and its continuing achievements.
