New Equality Prize generates two alumnae winners

In 2021, Burgmann College and the indigo foundation partnered to establish the Equality Prize to be awarded annually on a continuing basis to a Burgmann College resident or member of our alumni who has contributed significantly in any way to reducing inequality amongst people in any of its forms. 


And That’s a Wrap: BRA President Isobel Kuo’s 2021 Wrap-up

Despite the tumultuous year for residents with the onset of COVID-19 at college, Burgmann residents banded together in a true celebration of the college spirit. This year, BRA set out with three key goals in mind: (1) working towards Cultural Change, (2) reinvigorating College events which did not occur in 2020, and (3) centralising the handover process. I am proud to report that all three goals have been achieved.

Burgovision and Zoom debating - Semester 2 Arts Update

There we were, hundreds of ressies filling the sidebar squares of a Zoom call as the main screen showed a group of 2H inhabitants dancing to a parody of Mamma Mia, singing, “Quarantine/Here we go again…” It was a strange and wonderful semester for the arts, with Burgmann’s endless capacity do adapt and find the fun in any situation shining through.
