Be a law-abiding road-rule citizen these holidays
Follow the rules of the road to be safe.

Road crashes are a major cause of deaths globally, and particularly during the March-April holidays in South Africa. Therefore, abiding by the rules of the road serves to curb the high number of fatalities and is highly recommended. We urge all staff and students to take caution on the roads to ensure a safe return to the campuses next term.

According to Arrive Alive, some of the leading accident causes include drunk driving, failure to wear seatbelts, driver inexperience, driver fatigue, distracted driving and walking, as well as bravado. Be sure to avoid this at all cost.

Obeying the rules of the road saves lives. In 2016, Arrive Alive partnered with the UFS BSafe Campaign to educate students on becoming more responsible drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. For more road safety tips, visit the Arrive Alive website here.

The Faculty of the Humanities at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently launched an anti-plagiarism awareness campaign on the Main Campus in Bloemfontein. Part of the launch was an exhibition in the foyer of the Flippie Groenewoud building and a slogan competition for students. The winning slogan was: “Copy and paste your studies to waste" from Aldoret Theron, a second-year student in B.Soc.Sc. Human and Societal Dynamics, the second prize went to Jacqueline Pretorius, a second-year student in B.Sc. Medical Microbiology with her slogan: “Plagiaat, die begin van jou lewe op straat", and the third prize was won by Gini Keyser, a third-year student in B.A. General with her slogan "Cloning it is clowning it”. Here are, from the left: Gini Keyser, Aldoret Theron, Prof. Engela Pretorius (Vice-Dean of the Faculty of the Humanities at the UFS), Marizanne Cloete (from the Faculty of the Humanities' Portfolio Committee for Quality Assurance), and Jacqueline Pretorius.
