Deakin Desk Drawers - Keepsakes and curiosities exhibition

Something new is coming to Deakin campuses – a snapshot of the last 40 years of Deakin history built out of the things we use most often. Did you know Deakin were inter-university sporting champions in 1995? Or that lectures were recorded all the way back in 1989?

For the past six months Deakin staff have been scouring their cupboards, cabinets, and yes, desk drawers, to find the old, the weird and the wonderful Deakin memorabilia they've accumulated over the decades.

Start:  10 November 2014
End:    12 December 2014
Where: Warrnambool Campus

Check the dates for your campus and come see the history of Deakin in a whole new way.
