from the principal 2013 is an important year for Lincoln College, and not just because it is the 40th anniversary of women in College. This year we are pleased to launch two new awards: the Cheong Choong Kong Scholarship for a mathematics or sciences student, and the Ervyn Whitehead Bursary in honour of the wife of the second Master of the College Rev Dr John Whitehead. New Awards Named after and fully endowed by our Distinguished Alumnus Dr “CK” Cheong, the new scholarship celebrates the achievements of students in the sciences. CK, as he is affectionately known, was a student at Lincoln in the 1960s. A Colombo Plan Scholar, an Honours graduate in Mathematics, former chair of Singapore Airlines and an all round good guy, his CV is also peppered with acting roles – CK not only contributed to Lincoln College productions but also took the role of “cabbie” in the much loved Singapore drama The Yang Sisters (whilst Chairman of OCBC in Singapore). CK really encapsulates the Lincoln spirit – work hard, have fun, laugh at yourself often and support others. We see these qualities in his daughter Sha Nin who is currently at Lincoln.

The Inaugural CK Cheong recipient will be announced at the Scholarship dinner in May. The Inaugural Ervyn Whitehead bursary has been awarded to second year University of Adelaide medical student Rhiannon Hein. Rhiannon is also a student of Wilto Yerlo, the Indigenous arm of the University of Adelaide. We are very proud of Rhiannon’s ability to achieve academically and balance this with a healthy social life. Rhiannon is a contributor to many of the social justice activities at College and is very active in the Medical School. You can read more about Rhiannon at the back of Lincoln Line. Who We Are In February this year the Lincoln College Council adopted a new set of values to help drive the College forward and to reflect what we believe are the aims and benefits of 21st century collegiate life. These values form the basis for decision making around strategic and pastoral issues. Along with these values we developed a new statement of philosophy that underpins the way we live out these values at Lincoln. Many of these ideas are influenced by Martin Seligman’s work on resilience and positive psychology. In particular our aim is to create students who issue 52 autumn 2013 | 3

“flourish”. The “purpose” of the College is clearly stated in our constitution: “The function of the College is to provide a comfortable, supportive and secure community environment for students. The College seeks to foster excellence in all aspects of its life; it provides academic and study assistance; it supports Christian worship in a context of respect for other religions, beliefs and customs; it encourages the exploration of life values and respect for personal, spiritual, professional and community values.”

College philosophy, support structures and policies acknowledge and embrace this whilst ensuring that residents are focused on their academic goals and that risk is mitigated. Our core values Empowering our residents to flourish throughout their lives by: • Deepening our care for others and ourselves • Developing innovative critical thinkers and decision makers • Building resilience, strengthening skills

Philosophy

• Stewarding our assets and capital

The environment should be one in which harm is minimised, but in which mistakes are seen as learning experiences. A College should be a step between home and independence, where new patterns of thinking, acting and being are forged in an environment of conversation, participation, discovery, forgiveness and exploration. College staff are guides, mentors, touchstones and occasionally, but lastly, disciplinarians. Emerging adulthood is a time of change, risk, and at times confusion. The 4 | LincolnLine

On a final note, I am still constantly surprised, amazed and reassured for our future by our residents and their capacity to achieve extraordinary things. A 100% pass rate of all subjects sat by our Flinders University students and an extremely high pass rate overall, with several residents being awarded Deans’ Merit Certificates, demonstrates that College life can assist residents to flourish socially and academically.

• Broadening our cultural horizons

In the new statement and values, we flesh out this commitment to our residents:

The College takes the view that a residential college should be a cross-section of the university – a cross-section that integrates the community rather than segregates it. Personal, academic and professional enrichment and development are keys to a fulfilling student life. Collegiate life should also contain large elements of social enjoyment and fun, and provide spaces where students can meet each other informally for interaction. College is a space where life-long friendships are formed, beliefs tested, and resilience bolstered.

If you attend the Alumni Dinner you will be able to hear some of them perform along with Music Coordinator Ed Hund and the Lincoln College Jam Construction Society.

• Fostering healthy traditions • Modelling sustainability and accountability • Celebrating accomplishments - students, staff, alumni These values permeate all that we plan and do, as can be seen through the wonderful mission statements provided by the College resident leadership teams.

Indigenous Students at Lincoln This year we have eleven Indigenous students through the Wilto Yerlo programs at the University of Adelaide. I know how proud Ervyn Whitehead would be that the College is able to support these students. Most of them are studying music through the CASM project. They are being mentored by our senior music students and the sounds that are echoing through the College are exciting and beautiful. The College community has fully embraced this cultural augmentation to life at Lincoln and we hope that we will be welcoming our Indigenous brothers and sisters for years to come.

At an Earth Hour event recently, I was deeply moved by the musicality and power present in our CASM students’ voices; I look forward to hearing more from them. I’d like to close by sharing a few thoughts about education. At Lincoln College we believe that learning and education is more than just academia. We encourage a holistic approach to tertiary education and collegiate life, valuing personal, professional, developmental and academic growth. Such an approach to education helps students grow as persons and become informed and resilient global citizens.

academics 2013 is upon us. A new cohort of residents has arrived and Lincoln College is brimming with life, light and laughter. As the new Academic Dean at Lincoln, I have had the very great pleasure of joining the Lincoln family this year. Staff and students have warmly welcomed and supported me in my transition here. This welcoming spirit reflects the core purpose of this College, which is to provide a supportive environment for students that enables and fosters excellence. For those who have not met me, my name is Lewis Webb, and my educational background is in Classics, Psychology and Medical Science. I am currently studying and tutoring in Classics at the University of Adelaide. My research is focused on intersections between religious tolerance and censorship in Republican Rome. Prior to my appointment here, I worked at the University of Adelaide as an Academic Counsellor for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. I hope to bring this breadth of experience to bear at Lincoln. I am wholeheartedly dedicated to enriching students’ academic lives and

fostering their academic growth. In this pursuit, I am ably supported by my Academic Team. This year, the Academic Team includes Hannah Pham (Academic Coordinator), Arrhchanah Balachandran, Vishesh Bhojwani, Jaimi Gray, Brock Hermans, Gajon Kumaran, Erin Launer, Jessica Miral and Teagan Stuchbery. My team is a constant wellspring of support and inspiration. They are to be lauded for their hard work in producing this year’s academic programs and tutorials. Gratias multas. At Lincoln College, we have a proud tradition of academic achievement. In Semester 2 2012, Lincoln College students continued in that tradition. Our Flinders University students performed remarkably well with a 100% pass rate. Well done! Our University of South Australia students performed well too, with a 94% pass rate. Our University of Adelaide students also performed well with a 91% pass rate. Of note this year, Lincoln College is working closely with Wilto Yerlo, the University of Adelaide’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Centre. We have welcomed eleven new Wilto Yerlo students into the Lincoln family. We have been especially blessed with

of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” A holistic education allows students to critically examine their lives and equips them with the tools to make changes to the world. The Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore lauded the liberating power of a holistic education where “the mind is without fear, and the head is held high…where the mind is led forward… into ever-widening thought and action – into that heaven of freedom.” At Lincoln we strive to provide this form of education, in an environment brimming with life, light and laughter.

academic success

the spirit of giving

Many students deserve recognition for their academic accomplishments in Semester 2, 2012. The following students earned at least one High Distinction or Distinction in their courses: Thomas Ackling, Benjamin Agnew, Mustafa Ahmed, Jessica Alderslade, Hannah Allwright, Rosanna Anderson, Andrew Au, Jayden Austin, Jessica Ballantyne, Sarah Ballantyne, Claire Bandy, Rhiana Bell, Elizabeth Bennet, Kale Bettison, Renee Biele, Nicola Bilton, Catherine Bolesworth, Julia Bradshaw, Anna Bullivant, Callum Calder, Scott Carlson, Douglas Carrison, Liam Carusi, Samuel Collins, Samantha Dakis, Logan Dennis, Nicole Dmochowska, Regan Dunstan, Daniel Ellis, Stephanie Farquharson, Rachelle Ferber, Dylan Gerschwitz, Konstantinos Glykos, Matthew Glynn, Chloe Goldsworthy, James Grantham, Jaimi Gray, Hannah Gregori, Chloe Hasell, Lynsey Hearn, Brock Hermans, Amanda Hii, Rebecca Hill, Aimee Horsfall, Kari Humphreys, Edward Hund, Casey Hutchesson, Rebecca Hutchinson, Sophia Hyland, Nilarni Jayakumar, Joseph Ji, Ashleigh Jones, Komal Karamchandani, Yuka Kondo, Thomas Kuys, Stacey Kyrimis, Robert Lamb, Trevor Lau, Erin Launer, Mark Low, Jochi Maker, Frances McInerney, Samuel McKindlay, Cara McMeel, Spencer McTavish, Shavaughn Mihan, Kay Min, Jessica Miral, Salome Mulumbe, Andrew Newell, Yong Sheng Ong, Rosanna O’Reilly, Sarah Phillips,

I’ve always been excited by Lincoln’s increasing charity involvement and the generous attitude of its residents, and this year has been no different. Already our first few charity events have been well-supported by the student body and I hope this is a sign of (good) things to come!

Again this year we began the charity calendar with the traditional Pancake Day breakfast during O’Week, with all donations going towards Uniting Care. The first big event of the year was packing birthing kits for Zonta, and what a busy night it was! The turn-out was so great, that we didn’t have enough gloves or table space to handle so many: another expansion for next year! The Charities Committee also had a great first meeting, with many fantastic and thoughtful ideas being brought forward, and an excellent representation by this year’s freshers. Planning has already started for some of the bigger events! We will be supporting the College’s involvement in the Red Shield Appeal and the National Tree Planting Day events again this year, and continuing our organisation of blood donations through Red Cross. We are also very excited to be working together with Erin Launer in her numerous projects as Outreach and Development Coordinator this year. Our two biggest events for the year will again be Girls’ and Boys’ Night In, raising money

and awareness for breast cancer and prostate cancer, respectively. Plans for new ventures this year include volunteer work for Ronald McDonald House Charities, and supporting previous Senior Tutors Liz Allen and Ria Damp in organising an Alumni charity event surrounding the City-to-Bay! As part of our encouragement of charity event participation amongst our residents, this year we are awarding points towards the interbuilding Cup, Lincoln Legends, to those who get involved. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like this year will be a tough competition! I’m amazed again this year by the heart Lincolnites have for charity, and it keeps getting bigger every year. Their ready willingness to help those locally and globally is something I feel blessed to be able to see daily, and I hope this spirit of giving stays with Lincoln into the future. If you would like to find out more about our endeavours, please contact me via email: josiah.saunders@student.adelaide.edu.au. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement! Josiah Saunders

We will be supporting the College’s involvement in the Red Shield Appeal and the National Tree Planting Day events again this year, and continuing our organisation of blood donations through Red Cross. We are also very excited to be working together with Erin Launer in her numerous projects as Outreach and Development Coordinator this year. Our two biggest events for the year will again be Girls’ and Boys’ Night In, raising money

and awareness for breast cancer and prostate cancer, respectively. Plans for new ventures this year include volunteer work for Ronald McDonald House Charities, and supporting previous Senior Tutors Liz Allen and Ria Damp in organising an Alumni charity event surrounding the City-to-Bay! As part of our encouragement of charity event participation amongst our residents, this year we are awarding points towards the interbuilding Cup, Lincoln Legends, to those who get involved. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like this year will be a tough competition! I’m amazed again this year by the heart Lincolnites have for charity, and it keeps getting bigger every year. Their ready willingness to help those locally and globally is something I feel blessed to be able to see daily, and I hope this spirit of giving stays with Lincoln into the future. If you would like to find out more about our endeavours, please contact me via email: josiah.saunders@student.adelaide.edu.au. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement! Josiah Saunders

heading o’week 2013 brought over eighty new and nervous freshers to Lincoln College. We formed pairs, an older student with a new, a ‘big sibling to a little’, to release a bit of tension. They were still overwhelmed in the beginning, but the freshers loosened up as we taught them their new fresher dance. The energy for this dance shadowed all our events, even staying in the 6am yoga session with our screaming Sophia Hyland in an eighties leotard. Lincoln College has many clubs at college: from Gardening, Christian, online gaming, International films, knitting and the Jazz band. All the freshers eagerly lined up with pens, keen to be involved. They continued to surprise the College Club and older students with their full enthusiasm for Barn Yard; dosey doe-ing a new partner at each yell of instruction. By the end of the night, everyone was laughing and had met just about everyone. Our nightly events tried to introduce the new students to this great city. Quiz Night was an introduction to Australian culture for International students, as well as testing their general knowledge about Adelaide. Our Scavenger Hunt showed the essentials of

10 | LincolnLine

North Adelaide especially O’Connell Street. The Amazing Race showed them the city. O-Week highlighted the academic support the students should expect through an Academic Night. The amusing activities had the freshers moulding teeth and gums with play dough, pinning the organs onto our skeleton, playing murder mystery and destroying tiny dinosaurs by erupting volcanoes. Though university is a time to put childish things behind us, Disney Club ran The Lion King for our tired freshers to feel nostalgic and placid in the busy week. Our theme was Woodstock and freshers wore their tie-dyed vests with pride. They only managed to lose about five. Those who did accepted the consequences and gained a new friend, a happy watermelon to carry with them. Though an impromptu fresher dance claimed it very suddenly.

Our freshers enjoyed the warm weather of February under the glowing trees of The Garden of Unearthly Delights. Our Old Collegians were invited back to meet our latest collection of freshers at The General Havelock (our 2013 sponsor). We also had a friendly game of cricket later in the week. Our End of O-Week party kept in the theme of Woodstock, with grass beneath our toes, a live band and flowers in our hair. O-Week was wrapped up with a swarm of tie-dyed vests being thrust into the air, and the freshers were officially a part of Lincoln College! As a Club, we are very excited for the coming year. College Club 2013

Celebrating the diverse culture mix we have at Lincoln College, we held an International Festival. Alongside a BBQ lunch outside, we highlighted different enjoyable parts of cultures such as origami, Indian henna, piñata and sumo wrestling. We even enjoyed a strong part of Adelaide’s culture, The Fringe Festival. issue 52 autumn 2013 | 11

women at lincoln Did you know that at Lincoln in our first 61 years, 40 of which have included women in College, we have had (you’ll all let me know if I’m wrong!): • • • • • • •

2 female Chairs of Council 1 Female Principal Mainly Female Vice Masters/Deans Several female Senior Tutors female Administrators/Bursars 1 woman as the Alumni Association President 6 women Presidents of the College Club beginning with Carolyn Stafford and lastly in 2012, Erin Launer.

The first woman President was elected almost 20 years after women arrived in College. From 1952 to 1972 Lincoln College was in the era that could be referred to as BCE (before co-education). This doesn’t mean that women were never seen in the halls and rooms of Lincoln – after all, Lincoln men and St Ann’s women shared drama productions amongst other entertainment, and the Lincoln men were known to be very hospitable to the nurses living in quarters across the park, keeping a ‘brotherly’ eye on them. And of course, Mrs Dulcie Hambly was a matronly presence amongst the residents. But times and budgets were a changing and 12 | LincolnLine

the College and the Methodist Conference were looking forward to 1973 CE (Co-educational era). Throughout the decades, the proportion of women in college has ebbed and flowed. In Whitehead’s time the men complained that the women, at 40%, were the majority! There is still a hangover about the proportion of women in the College with some older Alumni commenting on what they perceive as a “matriarchal” move in recent years. Of course, considering that for 20 years of co-educational residency there was little representation for the women within the student body, and hardly any women in senior staff or on Council, the balance is still well and truly in the favour of the men! And the men will still say to me that there are more women in College when the numbers clearly show the opposite: 51% men – 49% women in 2013. What I do love about Lincoln is that there is no issue with the residents voting for the best person for the job regardless of gender having seen 6 women Presidents in fairly quick succession when they were the best candidate. The late 1970s and 1980s women are a particularly impressive cohort with strong attendance at events and an even stronger sense of friendship across the decades. Women like Jane Longmire and Michelle Rawady rally

the troupes for the Annual Alumni Dinner, and Mel Mellen, Heather Malcolm and Jenni Romaniuk have forged strong and impressive careers. Overseas, women such as Distinguished Alumnus Lim Soo Hoon and Dr Carol Tan have devoted their lives to the service of others and made a significant difference to their communities. 1980s Alumna Karen Abraham has an outstanding global reputation as an intellectual property lawyer and has been significant in the philanthropic growth at Lincoln. In future years, we will see even more of our women graduates succeeding. A name to watch out for is Jana Lai, who graduated in 2009. Jana won the 2011 NT Young Achiever Award in Science and Engineering. Jana continues to contribute to innovative and life-changing work globally in the area of immunisation. She also spends time inspiring young women to study science. If you know of a woman who deserves to be given a Distinguished Alumni Award for her service to Lincoln or a Distinguished Fellow Award for her intellectual and academic pursuits, please nominate her by contacting Sara Lim (sara.lim@lincoln.edu.au) at College Central Office. Let’s celebrate Lincoln’s women.

At Lincoln we are fortunate to have the opportunity to help women around the world who don’t have the same opportunities that we have here in Australia. Activities that the residents and staff do to help women around the world include: • Packing birthing kits for the Australian Birthing Kit Foundation and Zonta • Attending the International Women’s Day Breakfast and raising awareness of international issues facing women • Attending the White Ribbon Breakfast • Self-defence classes for our women • Girls’ Night In for Breast Cancer • Sexual Assault Prevention sessions • Knitting blankets for stillborn babies and orphans Excerpt from “A History of Lincoln College” by Dr Ian Forbes: “Times are a changing.

the happy bookers to the issue. The matter was deferred until the appointment of a new Master. St Ann’s advertised its new co-educational status in 1972 for the 1973 academic year and so Lincoln asked its new Master Rev Dr John Whitehead if he too would be happy to accept women into College in 1973. Dr Whitehead responded very positively – happy to have a fuller College that included women than an emptier college of only men... ...The College Club President of 1973 wrote” The College took co-education in its stride. In fact, probably the only difference from previous years is that women are paying fees this year. No major problems arise at all and it is valuable experience in regarding women as equals and as close friends rather than ‘chicks’” pg 77 While this sounds like the College had a smooth transition to women amongst the ranks, other

residents of the era remark that traditions and attitudes were slow to change in some areas. The first year began with very little forethought or planning for the arrival of women, and with only 12 women in College at the beginning of the year; they were certainly neither the majority nor listened to. This, I am pleased to say, has changed significantly and women are fully part of life at Lincoln College alongside their male co-residents. In 40 years we will be reflecting on other matters to do with gender, sexuality, equality and in all likelihood, the role of technology in the College community. I hope that it is all as positive and forward thinking as the College’s inclusion of women has primarily been.

The Lincoln College Book Club began in 2010, when I noticed how many students talked about “wanting to have more time for reading” and “wishing I could read more” around the tables in the Hambly Dining Hall. It was decided that a structure which allowed residents to nominate interesting books, choose one book to read per term, and discuss their reading over all-important cheese and crackers, would be the most sensible approach for a population with heavy study schedules and lots of “non-negotiable” university reading commitments already. We have a steady group of about 10 readers who attend each meeting, plus a few extras who come and go depending on their interest in the book under discussion.

One of the best things about a book club is being exposed to new authors and books that you’d never come across on your own. Since 2010, the book club has read The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie, We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver, Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon, The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas, Dune by

Principal and CEO

Frank Herbert, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, and The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. The new book for Term1, 2013 is The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom, and we’ll meet again early in Term 2 to discuss the book and our thoughts. We have a Facebook group at http://www. facebook.com/groups/123395444345505/ and welcome Lincoln alumni to read along with us and join us for cheese and biscuits once a term! Dr Jordan Bell

LCAA & you Hello Fellow Lincolnites! I hope you had a great festive season and Easter - even if they are distant memories now... The annual Alumni Dinner which is the gala event of our calendar is fast approaching and the committee has been hard at work organising it. On the traditional last Saturday of May we will host the dinner at the new venue of Ayers House in the City. This year is the 40th anniversary of women at Lincoln College so we have enlisted one of our committee members, Dorothy Eiffe (nee Ostle), to share her memories as one of the first women to stay at College in 1974 (officially anyway!). Dot brought all three editions of Stag (1974-1976) from her years at College to a committee meeting and from what the committee’s seen and heard we’re in for some great stories! I hope you can join us. (See pg 20 for more information). A very short AGM (optional) will be held immediately prior to the dinner to elect a new Lincoln College Alumni Association committee. After serving a three year term as President I will be stepping down to make way for somebody else but will remain on the committee. As usual all positions (four office 18 | LincolnLine

bearing and four committee member positions) will be open for nomination and we encourage anybody who is interested in joining the committee to put their name forward either prior to or at the meeting. We are particularly interested in representing as many generations as possible. As one of my last duties as President I am excited to announce a new event starting this year with the inaugural Alumni Rick Burge Run (See page 28 for more information). Rick has kindly offered to host a small group of alumni at his winery in the Barossa so we have organised an alumni winery tour in his namesake. Many of you will recall the infamous Rick Burge Run – if you don’t then you should come to the dinner to find out from Rick himself. Rick was at College at the same time as Dot and has been a great supporter (anybody who’s tried his College edition Draycott Shiraz can testify to that!). Seats are strictly limited to 20 people for this intimate event – alumni members will get preference as will those who sign up at the dinner. Another reason to come along! Dot just happens to also be the Membership Coordinator so if you want to join to be a member before the dinner then please

contact her at secretary@lincolnalumni.org.au. Enquiries about the Rick Burge Run should be directed to our Vice President, Justin Ripper, at vicepres@lincolnalumni.org.au. In my final contribution to Lincoln Line as LCAA President I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the rest of the committee for their hard work and to wish the new committee and all alumni the best of luck in the future.

This year is the 40th anniversary of women at Lincoln College so we have enlisted one of our committee members, Dorothy Eiffe (nee Ostle), to share her memories as one of the first women to stay at College in 1974 (officially anyway!). Dot brought all three editions of Stag (1974-1976) from her years at College to a committee meeting and from what the committee’s seen and heard we’re in for some great stories! I hope you can join us. (See pg 20 for more information). A very short AGM (optional) will be held immediately prior to the dinner to elect a new Lincoln College Alumni Association committee. After serving a three year term as President I will be stepping down to make way for somebody else but will remain on the committee. As usual all positions (four office 18 | LincolnLine

bearing and four committee member positions) will be open for nomination and we encourage anybody who is interested in joining the committee to put their name forward either prior to or at the meeting. We are particularly interested in representing as many generations as possible. As one of my last duties as President I am excited to announce a new event starting this year with the inaugural Alumni Rick Burge Run (See page 28 for more information). Rick has kindly offered to host a small group of alumni at his winery in the Barossa so we have organised an alumni winery tour in his namesake. Many of you will recall the infamous Rick Burge Run – if you don’t then you should come to the dinner to find out from Rick himself. Rick was at College at the same time as Dot and has been a great supporter (anybody who’s tried his College edition Draycott Shiraz can testify to that!). Seats are strictly limited to 20 people for this intimate event – alumni members will get preference as will those who sign up at the dinner. Another reason to come along! Dot just happens to also be the Membership Coordinator so if you want to join to be a member before the dinner then please

contact her at secretary@lincolnalumni.org.au. Enquiries about the Rick Burge Run should be directed to our Vice President, Justin Ripper, at vicepres@lincolnalumni.org.au. In my final contribution to Lincoln Line as LCAA President I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the rest of the committee for their hard work and to wish the new committee and all alumni the best of luck in the future.

alumni stories I came to Lincoln College in 1982 from Broken Hill nervous but excited at what lay ahead to study Physiotherapy, not only living away from home, but sharing with 179 other students. Little was I to know that the friendships that I formed in those first few days would be a source of great companionship, enjoyment and support thirty years on. Lincoln allowed me to participate in sporting as well as academic endeavours. Being a keen hockey player I was pleased to hear that Lincoln had a women’s team in the Adelaide metropolitan league and I was soon sporting the very attractive sky blue uniform. We travelled all over Adelaide to play from Noarlunga to Port Adelaide often arriving to games late, all jammed into the few available cars and maybe a tad worse for wear from the Dover Castle the night before! The highlight was the 7 - 0 grand final victory in 1983 after an undefeated season. The same group of Lincoln women played together in the Inter-college AFL team against Flinders Hall and the “Aquinas Amazons”. We had more enthusiasm than skill and in order to get us fired up, our coaches designed the

chant that we wanted to “eat footballs “. I recall we looked more like a swarm of bees moving around Uni oval but we had a great time. Dr John was the Master at this time. DJ & his wife Ervyn worked hard to soften some of the formal traditions of earlier college life and to promote inclusion while respecting diversity. Ervyn held open house and dinners at the Masters residence for collegians. These occasions often fostered conversations with Ervyn that were thought provoking and challenged the traditional female stereotypes I had grown up with in Broken Hill. Ervyn respected and encouraged strength, pride and independence in the young women she meet in the eighties. I still enjoy strong and treasured friendships with a number of other Lincoln women and I recognise us all as mature and successful professionals. Heather Malcolm (Alumna 1982-83)

“Deciding to leave Lincoln at the end of last year was actually perhaps the hardest decision I have made in my life. The choice was made easier by the knowledge that I was passing the torch on to a brilliant new Dean, Lewis Webb. I will remain eternally grateful for my time as Assistant Dean, and look forward to an ongoing association with the College and its staff and students. In the meantime, I remain happily ensconced in students through my work at the University of Adelaide; I continue to support current students in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as prospective students in the Northern Suburbs. I am also using the time to start work on a nonfiction book. On a personal note, I am also taking advantage of my extra ‘leisure’ time (!) to see more of my dad, who hasn’t been in the best of health since his diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.” Dr Stephanie Hester

“My experience of living at Lincoln College has vastly been a very positive one. I was welcomed into the community from the first day and immediately made many friends. I came to Lincoln as a high school leaver and was initially struck by the number of networking opportunities – I had more to do and more doors I could enter than I did when I was at home! I have no hesitation in saying that Lincoln has helped me to become a better person.” Hannah Pham

“Lincoln is a unique experience, where I have been given the opportunity to learn about people from different backgrounds and experiences in a capacity I would not otherwise have encountered. It is so much more to me than a place where I live and where I could make some friends. It¹s the enjoyment of supporting my college and friends at regular social and sporting events, the chance to do something good for charity, succeed academically, and give back to the community I¹ve grown to love so much. This is something I can take with me through life, and which I can hopefully develop over the summer during a human rights project in Africa.”

“Lincoln means so much to me, as I know without your help I don’t believe I would be were I am today! In 2012 I made the journey from the quiet rural town of Kadina, Yorke Peninsula. What made me more nervous than entering university itself was how I was going to pay for university. In the months before university I worked tirelessly at my local Macdonald’s in an attempt to make it to university. I came incredibly close to giving up; I knew it was impossible without help. A few days prior to moving to Adelaide I got an email from Lincoln saying I had won the scholarship. You should have heard the roar that went through the work place. I was going to uni!” Alice Gersch

Co-recipient of the Andrew Smith Scholarship, 2012 “The Henderson Country Student Scholarship has enabled me to continue living in the wonderful community of Lincoln College which has become my home away from home; where I have been able to succeed academically and make many wonderful friends. Without this scholarship, I would not have been able to afford to live at college or be as successful as I have been thus far in my degree. Coming from a low-income family, I didn¹t think I would be able to afford to attend university, but the Henderson Country Student Scholarship has allowed me to be the first person in my family to attend university.”

(Cultural Secretary 2013), Co-recipient of the Henderson Country Student Scholarship 2012 Simone Treloar

Without the scholarship, I would not have been as successful as I have been, or have been able to attend university at all. Living at Lincoln has opened up many networking opportunities and allowed me to make many friends. These networking opportunities have been instrumental in obtaining a subsequent university scholarship and a contract of paid employment in my graduate year.

Co-recipient of the Henderson Country Student Scholarship 2012 “I moved in as a rather naive eighteen year old boy without a true sense of identity and emerged a confident and self-assured man ready to take on the world. Embracing the opportunities afforded by college, whether that be tutoring fellow students, beating St. Marks at tennis or the madness of Hens and Bucks, truly allows you to better understand yourself and make the most of this unique stage of life. From the college experience, I have lifelong friends, countless memories and will always feel that I have a second home at 45 Brougham Place, North Adelaide.” Lachlan Angus

Thank you! “Attending university had always been a goal of mine, so having the opportunity to do so, while being in such a supportive environment at Lincoln has been a great experience thus far. Studying Medicine at the University of Adelaide is immensely rewarding. I have always aspired to a career in medicine, I believe that there would be no better reward than ensuring the wellbeing of those who are ill. I am very grateful to receive this bursary. Thank you for this opportunity and the role you have taken in contributing to the success of college students.� Rhiannon Hein Recipient of the Inaugural Ervyn Whitehead Bursary 2013
