NAT House held their second annual Faculty Festival from 17 to 21 August and everyday was jam packed with activities. Kicking off the festival, NAT House held a Science Career Expo where they had a number of speakers from different professions speak about opportunities in their fields. Moving on to the next day, NAT House hosted a quiz night that was open to the general UP public and awarded the top five people vouchers.
On 19 August, they held a discussion on transformation in science, led by four guest speakers who addressed different aspects of transformation and where participants engaged with them on the topics. The following day, they organised a sports interview with Tarik Lalla, the UP Sport Ex-Officio and the Mamelodi Sundowns Goalkeeper coach, Marcus Mashilo, where they spoke about a range of different topics including opportunities for students in sports and the recent 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Throughout the week, NAT House held a sports competition where students were required to send in a video of 30 seconds showcasing a trick or move in their respective sports. This
competition was judged by popular vote, on the same day as the interview, with the top three students winning vouchers. On the final day, NAT House ended their faculty festival by hosting a Cultural Pageant and Talent Show. The top three people in the pageant, as well as the top talent show entry, and the participant with the best cultural dress were awarded prizes.
