Fall 2013 Orientation: Wamkelekile!

After much preparation and planning things finally kicked off with airport pickups on 2 July 2013.  The RAs sang traditional South African songs of welcome at the airport, melodically ushering our newest group of students onto African soil.
Orientation covered an array of topics: housing, safety and security, community engagement, cultural immersion and more - staff members came up and gave talks on all the topics - this was again facilitated by the ever capable RAs.

A definite highlight was the AMA - zing race (sometimes mistaken for it's cousing the Amazing Race). Prizes varied from dinner at Africa Cafe to trips along the Garden Route, all of which was welcome! "If it's free, it's for me!"
In between all this there was still ample time to go exploring in the city and catch a sunset from Signal Hill!
The week ended off with dinner at the renowned Moyo's Restaurant at the Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. It was a chance for face painting, great food, great music and a family celebration of the end of Orientation and the beginning of five unforgettable months.
Whilst on the dancefloor someone was quoted as saying "It's time like these I really wish I knew how to crump"...she has five months to learn that and more from this city!
