The University of the Free State (UFS) recently sent the first ever group of 71 first-year students to the United States of America (USA) as part of the Student Leadership Development Programme. During their visit, they are experiencing student life and are learning about leadership and diversity at nine universities.

The students are writing diaries, which are posted on Mail & Guardian Online.
