Graduates will be celebrating their accomplishments at the June Graduation ceremonies.

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.

2014 Sêr champions: Soetdoring and Veritas

- Announcement of the winners:

 

Kovsies know the feeling. And Sêr is the one event where that feeling runs like an electrical current across the Bloemfontein Campus. The 2014 Kovsie Sêr finals on 9 August was no exception.

The voices of seven ladies’ and six men’s residence serenade groups resounded through the icy evening air. With each rotation round, the tension built at a staggering rate. The three designated venues – Kovsiekerk, Albert Wessels Auditorium and Scholtz Hall – nearly burst at the seams with supporters packing in to cheer on their favourites.

A group from our Qwaqwa Campus, called Unspoken, allowed everyone to breathe a bit easier as they performed a variety of music pieces during the evening.

The suspense reached fever pitch, though, as the time arrived for the finalists to be announced.

The top three spots for the ladies’ residences:
• Marjolein (3rd),
• Vergeet My Nie (2nd) and
• Soetdoring (1st)

The top three spots for the men’s residences:
• Armentum (3rd),
• Vishuis (2nd) and
• Veritas (1st)

When Veritas took to the stage as newly-crowned victors, the crowd could hardly contain their enthusiasm and roared their approval. Amplifying the spirit of the evening even further, Soetdoring’s closing act ensured everyone went home feeling giddy with joy.

Veritas and Soetdoring will now proceed to compete at the nationals, hosted by the University of Johannesburg (UJ) on 30 August 2014.
