New Kovsies express immense spirit in First-year Athletics
| 2018-02-09, 11:37

Pellies Park on the Bloemfontein Campus played host to another electrifying First-year Athletics meeting on Wednesday 7 February 2018. Thuso Mpuang, Gideon Trotter, Kesa Molotsane, and Olympic gold medalist Wayde van Niekerk have all found themselves in this competition in previous years. Although the First-year athletics is more about participation and "gees" and not necessarily who are the best contestants, one is always bound to see one or two outstanding athletes that could represent Kovsies on the world stage in the future. It was awesome seeing this new crop of Kovsies get to experience what and how the Kovsie spirit feels like.

| 2018-02-05, 15:30

First-years were treated to a great Kovsies welcoming at the Bloemfontein Campus First-Years' Welcoming ceremony on Saturday 3 February 2018. Students and parents were addressed by SRC President, Asive Dlanjwa, Dean of Student Affairs, Pura Mgolombane, as well as the Rector and Vice-Chancellor of UFS, Prof Francis Petersen. Prof Petersen told the students that while they have the freedom to decide who they want to be, they should not lose themselves throughout the years they’ll be spending at the university. Dlanjwa urged students to get involved as much as possible and told them not to make the mistake of leaving with just a degree on campus, but with plenty of other experiences as well.
