Bond students gear up for Bondstock 2010

Bond students are clearing their calendars for the week of September 19 – 25 to make room for the University’s biggest week of the year – Bondstock!

The week-long festival run by students, involves a massive 15 events in seven days and is a combination of all things academic, sporting, social and cultural, designed to appeal to Bond’s diverse community.

Now in its fifth year, this year’s Bondstock promises to be the biggest ever, according to co-convenors and Bond students, Hugh Minson and Lauren Gain.

“There will be an impressive fireworks display lakeside, a cultural forum, music festival, cooking masterclasses, Don’s Tavern Comedy Night, dragon boat race, and an Alumni versus Students rugby match,” said Mr Minson.

“The annual music festival, which last year attracted more than 1,500 people, will be a certain highlight among students, with local artists and Ministry of Sound DJ from Sydney ‘Hook N Sling’ featured in this year’s line-up.

“On a more serious note, the corporate ‘Titans of Industry’ lunch will feature a panel of business experts who will discuss ‘The New Normal: Navigating Australia’s place in the global economy after the Great Recession,” he said.

“The panel will include: the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Chairman, Mr Graeme Samuel AC; Queensland Investment Corporation Chief Executive, Dr Doug McTaggart; Rothschild Australia Executive Chairman, Dr Trevor Rowe AO DUniv; Centre for Independent Studies Chairman, Mr Michael Darling; and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Director, Mr Tony Robinson. 

Bondstock festivities will culminate at the annual Bond University Students Ball – the pinnacle of all social events, and the chance for students to dress up in their finest.

The glamour stakes will be high at this year’s ball, which has a Hollywood Glamour theme and will be held at the magnificent Jupiters Casino at Broadbeach.
