The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1926

Graduates at Home

Graduates at Home.

What needs we tell their feasts and goodly guise
In which was nothing riotous or vain.


On Thursday evening, 13th May, an At Home was given for the graduates of the year, instead of the luncheon that has been a feature of recent Capping festivities. The lower Gymnasium Hall was tastefully decorated for the purpose by Mrs. John Hannah, and Mr. S. A. Wiren, President of the Graduates' and Past Students' Association, with Mrs. Wiren, received the guests. The informality of the gathering was a happy characteristic, and the chief contributors to the entertainment were Miss M. E. Cooley, B.A., by a recitation, and Mr. F. Mackenzie, B.A., by a pianoforte solo. Professor Kirk was at his best in a discursive discourse on various views of College life that he had heard, and Mr. Campbell gave vent to the feelings of the new graduates.
