On Saturday 27 January, Our University hosted its very first, first year Welcoming Ceremony as Nelson Mandela University. The faculty of Science welcomed its first years in the South Campus auditorium with a live stream of the VC’s address and entertainment from the South Campus sports centre. The program kicked off at 9am with a musical performance by 2Tone and was MC’d by the charismatic Yanga Lusasa. It was a day of ‘firsts’ as Prof. Muthwa delivered her first welcoming ceremony speech as our institutions new Vice Chancellor and the University’s first female VC. At 10am the live stream was turned off and attention was placed on Faculty of Science Dean, Prof Azwinndini Muronga who briefed all our first years on what to expect when entering the University as a first year science student. Emphasise was placed on hard work, with Prof. Muronga reassuring parents that their children had chosen the RIGHT faculty. After the Deans address the student were served with refreshments and got to meet their soon to be lecturers and HOD’s at the interesting departmental stalls displayed in the auditorium foyer. The 2018 Faculty of Science first year Welcoming Ceremony was a huge success and we expect nothing less for the academic year too.
