The Classes Have Begun…

As I write this blog you all should have started classes either at UWC or UCT today. I know that despite all the chats about how big the classes will be and just how different a big university feels like, today will still feel like starting Grade 1 because you will have to find out so many new things. But remember that you chose to study in a country and at a university that is vastly different from your own because you wanted a different learning experience. Grab the opportunity to make new friends and deepen your knowledge about university life in Africa. And remember the Arcadia mantra and if necessary, repeat it often to yourself, “It doesn’t suck, it’s just different!”
