1st year VUT students
The annual First Year Experience Faculty Day kicked off on a high note, with a sea of blue, red, yellow and green shirts floating on campus. The Vaal University of Technology (VUT), Vanderbijlpark campus was alive and buzzing with noise and movement as all first year students were officially welcomed to their Faculties.
On 23 January, Faculty Heads of Departments and lecturers met the first year students with the aim of familiarizing the students with the university environment. Mentors from the Centre of Academic Development (CAD) arranged for fun games and activities such as “navigating your way around campus.” This involved mentors showing the students how to navigate their way through the campus, and lecture venues with ease – also showing them and all the other important buildings on campus such as the library, cafeteria and gym.
Mentors are VUT students that were selected by the CAD team to assist the first year students with anything they may need pertaining to their fields of studies.
