From the moment Gary Collins’ eldest son Christopher walked onto the South Bank campus during Open Day, the family felt at home at Griffith.

“We had been to Open Days elsewhere but as soon as Chris took in what was on offer at Griffith, it just felt right and there’s never been a moment’s regret,” Brisbane dad Gary said.

Chris studied a Bachelor of Film and Screen Media Production and graduated in 2014, and developed an appetite for learning which has led him to pursue other academic interests.

Gary’s younger son Nicholas has also had a life-changing experience at Griffith initially studying Science at Griffith’s Nathan campus before transferring to a Bachelor of Marine Science at the Gold Coast.

“Nick has some learning difficulties and needs extra assistance and he received so much support and help from both fellow students and teachers at Griffith that he has excelled in his studies and we are enormously proud of him,” Gary said.

“For both my sons, studying at Griffith has been transformative, helping them grow and become mature young men while also giving them the best pathway to pursue their chosen careers.”
