NEW JOURNEY: First year students have kicked off their studies at CPUT

House Murray Garden in Wellington was abuzz this morning as scores of first years and their parents made their way to the first year welcoming ceremony.
The ceremony kicked off a trio of ceremonies to be held this week with Cape Town’s ceremony scheduled to take place on January 30 and Bellville on January 31.
Students and their parents were introduced to the university’s executive management, members of senior management as well as members of their local interim SRC.
Acting Vice-Chancellor, Dr Chris Nhlapo, took the opportunity to make students aware of the water crisis in the province.
“Some of you may have come from other provinces where water is plentiful but here in the Cape Day Zero, the day when the Western Cape runs out of water, is looming large. Institutionally we have an urgent action plan in place for the eventuality of that day.” He implored everyone to do what they can to “save the precious resource”.
“This is not a Western Cape problem or a CPUT problem. It is everyone’s problem.”
Nhlapo thanked first years for choosing to study at CPUT. “You have made a wise choice we believe. This institution is one of South Africa’s leading universities of technology,” he said. He also encouraged students to “work hard and smart from day one”.
