Hopefully you’re studying something you’re excited about. If it excites you and you’re interested in the subject matter, it makes life that little bit easier.
Many of us need to realise how much of a privilege it is to get the opportunity to go to varsity. Make sure you have chosen the right thing to study, something that suits you and not your parents/guardian and or friends.
You know we have your back, and we wanted to share a few things to help you on your journey through varsity:
This is your chance to find out what is happening at school. Do your best to join as many activities as you can this is a great way to make new friends. It’s an experience you’ll regret missing, so go check out, the brands that are on campus during the day, and see who they are, what they are all about and enjoy yourself.
Don’t fall into the trap of bunking classes, because one time often leads to more times ahead. Then you find yourself having fallen behind. When you’re feeling demotivated remember why you started, and continue from there. Don’t let your Varsity life only be about academics, join societies or sports clubs that you find interest in. (another great way to make friends)
Find out what socials are happening on and off campus such a freshers braai’s faculty balls or events. But also aim to socialize outside of varsity with your friends. Go to events, if you make an effort to get out there, you’ll get so much back. Whether it’s going to Kirsten bosch gardens or Ultra with your friends. The FNB stadium to watch a game or even to volunteering.
There are so many things to get involved in, it is up to you to decide how you want your year to go. No one can make it great for you!
