Faith Mudzingiri.

Sharing her father’s love for the field of commerce, Faith Mudzingiri, daughter of Dr Calvin Mudzingiri, Assistant Dean of the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, is one of the more than 1 500 students who received their qualifications during the University of the Free State Qwaqwa Campus virtual graduation ceremony. Faith obtained her BCom General Management degree during the virtual ceremony on 21 April.

In 2020, Mudzingiri topped the academic charts as the best student across all faculties on the campus.

Following in the footsteps of her father

An accounting enthusiast from an early age, Faith said her father has been her biggest motivation. Having a parent in such a critical position can come with immense pressure to perform, but she said “watching him inspired me a lot. For me to be here, is because I’ve learned from him that hard work pays off”.

Mudzingiri said while she was grateful for the accomplishment of being the Dux student for 2020, her academics did not get off to a good start in 2017 when she began her first year.

“As an international student coming from Zimbabwe, I struggled a lot in my first year. I had difficulty finding my feet in the new environment. Things got better in my second year, but in my third year I reminded myself why I was here and why I started this degree. I knew I wanted to graduate in record time, and so had to put in the work.”

Still set on achieving her accounting dream, Mudzingiri is now pursuing a BCom Accounting degree on the Bloemfontein Campus. “I would love to become a tax accountant and start my own accounting firm one day.”

2015 Rag CS brings joy and cheer to community
2015-02-04

This hard work reached a climax when all the 2015 Rag floats – all themed ‘Video Games’ and ‘City Icons’ – were judged on the Saturday morning of 31 January. Afterwards the floats departed for the first procession of the day en route to the Twin City Mall where 10 000 meals were distributed to the Heidedal and Mangaung communities.  The ever popular public procession continued through the streets of Bloemfontein later that day, when the decorated floats and students cradling collection tins proceeded to the Chevrolet Park cricket stadium. 

Karee, Wag-‘n-Bietjie and Sonnedou were this year’s overall Rag CS winners, as well as the float-building winners in Pool A, while JBM, Wel-Wel and Marjolein took first place for float building in Pool B.
