Alumni Picnic Day Menu


For those of you with teenagers considering university, this event also coincides with Melbourne Univerity's Open Day. It's the perfect opportunity to travel down to Parkville and make the most of the day!

If you are seeking accommodation nearby we recommend Vibe Hotel which is a short walk away.

(If you would like to continue on into the evening, we recommend meeting at Naughton's Hotel - a time honoured stomping ground where you can share a good meal and drink or two with old friends.)

Please RSVP & spread the word to other Whitleans.

Look forward to seeing you!

Note: this will be our penultimate alumni event before our beloved College closes down at the end of 2017. Our final event is our Alumni Gala on November 25th. Alumni are welcome to book accommodation on college grounds that weekend too. Make sure to save the date to have the opportunity to say goodbye.

Whitley Residential College

After 52 wonderful years, Whitley College on Royal Parade will be closing its doors as a residential college.

While this chapter may be ending for our beloved donut, we are excited to announce the life of Whitley's Alumni community is just beginning!

In 2017 we hope to celebrate the Whitley spirit and work towards a lasting legacy in the form of a book memoir, scholarship program and alumni association (along with a party or three).

Please help us achieve these goals by updating your contact information on our website so we can keep in touch, and by sharing this form with other Whitleans.

We'd also love to hear your thoughts on how we can make this year the most meaningful for all Whitleans, young and old.
