On Thursday afternoons at lunch time, the entrance to the Main Building at the University of the Free State’s (UFS) Main Campus has become busier than usual. The main reason for this is the number of UFS students as well as some staff members arriving to take advantage of the free soup and rolls supplied by the Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Jonathan Jansen, on behalf of the UFS.

These occasions are attended by Prof. Jansen himself. Whilst the soup and rolls are being served, Prof. Jansen also uses this platform to connect with the students and to discuss relevant issues on campus in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. This event is open to all UFS students and staff that would like to attend or might need something hot to stave off the cold August weather.
