June 2018 graduates from the University of the Free State (UFS) Bloemfontein Campus are beginning to prepare for their upcoming graduations. The ceremonies are scheduled to take place at the Callie Human Centre from Wednesday 27 June until Friday 29 June 2018.

The UFS plans to document and highlight the special moments that graduates encounter at this time. A daily update accompanied by photos will be available on the UFS website.

Visit the UFS graduation ceremonies page for more information on the upcoming events. Graduates and students are free to familiarise themselves with the Graduation Guide Booklet which stipulates the necessary information for students to note during the graduation processions.

Who, secretly, wouldn’t love to be a king or a queen? Two Kovsies were recently awarded exactly these titles. Lizelle Serfontein, a first-year medical student from Soetdoring residence, was chosen as Rag Queen 2014/15. Cameron Maree, a second-year BCom Accounting student and resident of House Karee, now owns the title of Mr Rag.

These two students have triumphed over nine other finalists in their respective competitions and will serve as charity ambassadors for the university. They share prizes to the value of R800 000 with their fellow finalists.
