Its NMMU not UPE

20 March 2013, 13:44

I have been studying at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) for two and bit years now, and I must say I have become a very proud Madiba. Whenever I am in other cities in South Africa I always get asked where I study, when I say NMMU I am always asked where that is, so I thought I would enlighten the people of South Africa what they are missing out on.  So much has been happening in this part of the world. Vision 2020 a list of what the university wants to achieve by the year 2020(honestly it looks like they have already done 90% of it) has really made NMMU a fantastic institution that I am proud to tell people I study at. Examples of new developments have been a new Bio-kinetics centre, new residences, new hi-tech modern lecture halls, revamping of the Main building and a new fitness and Aquatics centre, just to name a few.

This year history was made as the Madibaz rugby team reached the semi-final stages of the Varsity Cup for the first time. Attendance at the rugby games has been fantastic; the team has come from winning not one game to winning multiple games in the tournament. They put on a sterling performance against Maties in Coetzenberg to narrowly lose to them by 15 points to 10.

Studying Computer Science I have really had amazing lecturers, from the H.O.D all the way to the Junior lecturers they have all operated in a professional manner and have shown me how to solve problems like I have never been able to in the Past. The 3rd year computer lab was recently sponsored by Open Box, a software development company situated in Cape Town; they provided NMMU with funding to by many more mobile devices for learners to use for projects and research.

To me the one thing that makes a University a special place is the Students, at NMMU you get students from all over South Africa, Africa and Europe. I have learned to communicate with so many different people from different cultures, something that I would not have had, had I attended a predominantly Afrikaans University.

Having attended Grey High School here in PE, tradition has always been something I have loved, however coming to NMMU I realized you don’t need to have tradition already instilled in an institution, you can create your own tradition and new ways of doing things. I have come to love this University and would love my kids to one day attend this fantastic institution.
