New website a winner

After more than 18 months of hard work from countless staff across campus, the unveiling of our new public website on Monday 12 October was met with great excitement from our staff and student communities.

Since the site’s launch, the homepage has seen a 34 per cent increase in unique visitors, equating to approximately 138,000 visitors in just two weeks.

To coincide with the launch, our staff and student communities had the chance to take part in an online treasure hunt, to explore the site for the chance to win one of ten $100 Lonely Planet vouchers.

The final part of the treasure hunt asked entrants to ‘tell us how YOU think Macquarie is pioneering minds of the future’ and the responses received revealed our community is highly engaged with the work we are achieving together. A focus on PACE, GLP, our exchange programs and Macquarie’s innovative nature was the theme of many submissions, along with shout outs to impressive programs and areas of study, like Big History, and the many and varied opportunities our University has to offer.

From the several hundred entries received, our staff and student winners are:

  • Mark Berlage
  • Leslie Braganza
  • Yolanda Fitzhenry
  • Lara Hardy
  • Julia Jelbart
  • Thomas Lyons
  • Angela Mao
  • Georgina Rullis
  • Philippa Sutton
  • Joshua Wilde
