Reunite Alumni with Deakin Competition

Do you know a Deakin or antecedent institution graduate who has lost contact with the Deakin Alumni Office? Ask around your family and friends who graduated before 2019 to find out if they receive alumni communications.

If you know someone who does not receive alumni communications and who has not updated their contact details recently, invite them to email deakinalumni@deakin.edu.au and mention your name. If they then provide at least one of the following contact details in the Deakin Alumni Community portal and database: their valid email address, home address or phone number, then you both go in to the draw to win a $500 grocery/petrol voucher each. There will be three prize draws throughout the year.

Antecedent alumni are eligible to enter this competition so review the full list here, this list includes the Burwood Teachers College, Geelong Teachers College and many more institutions that merged before Deakin was formed.

Multiple entries will be given for referring multiple uncontactable alumni members but not for referring the same alumnus multiple times.
