From the Vice-Chancellor
Professor Roy Crawford
As we welcome our new students to the University of Waikato and prepare for the year ahead, our thoughts remain with all those affected by the Christchurch disaster. Many areas of our campus came to a virtual standstill for two-minutes last Tuesday to remember those who have lost so much. There will be few people in New Zealand who have not been touched by the tragic events in Canterbury.
