Welcome back

This week the University of Pretoria welcomes back its veteran students, after what feels like an eternity of a break. The first week back on campus always feels like a fresh start, another opportunity to achieve the goals that you set out for yourself when you began your degree. This year began a little differently compared to usual, without the traditional Rag procession and associated festivities. The Rag procession, which traditionally would have taken place over the weekend, has been cancelled for the time being (We’ve got an article on page 4 outlining this year’s Rag format), but while the first-year singing competition, InSync, may have been rebranded this year, it remained as good as its previous incarnation in prior years. The university has also implemented stricter access control rules, which may make getting on to campus a bit of a time consuming process as well. This means that you’ll probably have to be at the gates extra early if you want to make that 7:30am lecture. There’s a lot to look forward to this year, and Perdeby remains committed to keeping you informed about everything that happens at our university. If you’re interested in volunteering at Perdeby, look out for an application form in this edition. You’ll never know if you don’t apply. Wishing you the best for the academic year ahead.
