Change the world

The Student Alumni Society (SAS) embarked on a new bursary campaign this year - "A T-shirt for a special cause". Their initial target was to sell 2500 Madiba T-shirts but with the support so many students, staff, departments, alumni and friends, they managed to almost double their target selling 4578 t-shirts to date. 

Reflecting on 2016

More than twenty direct alumni engagement events took place during 2016 with events in major South African centres as well as an event in Gaborone where the launch of the Botswana Alumni Chapter took place to coincide with the country’s 50th independence anniversary. 

It was not love at first sight, but Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University’s (NMMU) Animal Production Lecturer and doctoral student Potego Phakwago’s love for Agriculture grew, and he has recently been selected for a Fellowship as one of 50 Young Scientists in Developing Countries to work in India for six months.
