The Major Sports Hall in Bellville was packed this morning as first years and their parents gathered for the Welcoming ceremony.

“Your future ultimately rests in your hands,” Dean of Students Prem Coopoo told the new students.

“For the next few exciting years CPUT will be your new home. You, and only you, are the architect of your life.”

She encouraged students to make contact with the First Year Experience unit.

Students and their parents were introduced to the university’s executive management as well as to members of senior management, before being officially welcomed by Vice-Chancellor, Dr Chris Nhlapo.

He encouraged students to turn any disadvantage into an advantage.

Dental Assisting student Lesego Montshiwagae said she was very excited to start her studies at the Tygerberg campus: “I want to work hard so that one day I can be a hygienist.”
