Last week former Dubbo students Sarah Fraser and James Gallagher officially graduated from the University of Canberra.
Miss Fraser graduated on Wednesday in the first cohort of Medical Imaging students, and Mr Gallagher graduated on Thursday with a Bachelor of IT.
Mr Gallagher said he had been interested in IT as a year-twelve student at St John's College.
"I had been genuinely interested in Technology, and it was probably my favourite subject in year 12," he said.
"Graduating was a very rewarding feeling, it was very satisfying, and it was good to see my family there too.
"Seeing my family visit from Dubbo was probably the best part of the day."
Mr Gallagher said despite not knowing exactly where he will go now, having just graduated, he has made a considerable effort to look for work opportunities.
"It was the end of a very long road, so I'm glad to have a bit of time off finally, but I do have a few interviews lined up."
