PDBWhy: The return to campus

The students at UP are what make the university what it is. So, how are students feeling about the possible return to campus this year? PDBY spoke to nine students, one from each faculty, about how they are feeling about their potential, or actual, return to campus in the new academic year, and where their favourite spot on campus or around Pretoria is.

PDBWhy: Instagram as your personal dating CV

Most people are not able to start a serious relationship with someone else without first completing a social media deep-dive on that person.

PDBWhy: What I miss most about campus

The University of Pretoria’s campuses are loved by students for many different reasons. As a result of the lockdown, students could no longer enjoy everything the campuses have to offer. PDBY asked students what they miss most about campus during lockdown, how they are recreating their favorite campus activities at home, and what they will do once they get back to campus.
