Pauline, Melissa and Maddie Lysaght share their connection to each other and the University of Wollongong, with personal experiences that span almost fifty years from UOW's inception, to starting uni during a pandemic.

Nik Preiner and Nathan Hancock grew up in Canberra, but didn't meet until they moved to Wollongong and into the same student accommodation. Now they run a successful financial business, and have been side-by-side since meeting at O-Week fifteen years ago.

Jaymee and Mick have led very different career paths, but similar circumstances led them to enrolling at the University of Wollongong to change their own narrative.

Adam Smith and Balunn Jones met as kids living in the same street. They spent their teens surfing, skating and playing music in Balunn's basement, before enrolling at UOW together.
When their favourite Wollongong venue closed down, Adam, Bal and their mate Ben took matters into their own hands to create Yours and Owls.
