Melissa gets top gong at graduation

Southern Cross University was abuzz with excitement last week when more than 1000 students graduated on Friday and Saturday.

Among them were many outstanding students who had poured their heart and soul into their studies to get the best grades they possibly could, including University medallist Melissa Sanghera (pictured).

Melissa, from Numulgi, graduated with first class honours and a combined arts/law degree. When giving the graduate address Melissa told the audience that she had chosen to study law to change the world and hoped one day to work for the United Nations in the area of human rights law. She has already found work with Freehills, a top Sydney law firm.

In total, 1185 students graduated over the two days, representing all of the schools, colleges and departments within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Faculty of Business and Law.
