Life on campus
Student life is one of the most important times in a person’s life- it is the time where one truly discovers who you are, through the people they surround yourself with... and at Stenden you will truly find interesting, diverse people to surround yourself with.
To explain student life at Stenden SA is easy... Sport, Academics, Campus parties, movie nights, long summer days on Grand’s lawn and good friends ensure that there is never ever a dull moment!
At Stenden we see ourselves as one big family-we laugh, love and learn together- a perfect trifecta.
"How does one even explain how life on campus is? It is new to some and exciting for all the newbies on campus. To the rest of us this is home...
This module is full of new faces and new parties; it never gets old. We make new friends all the time! The only down side is parting with our Grand Tour friends at the end of every second module. There is always a positive vibe on campus, everyone is friendly and willing to help anyone who has a problem. Here you learn something new about yourself all the time. Stenden South Africa is very cultured, so not only do we share our cultures with other people, we also get the opportunity to learn about other people’s cultures too.
For the first time Stenden South Africa is bringing in the events module, which is exciting for all the Fourth years. We have various sports that people can join to get fit and community projects to keep you sane.
Life on campus is never the same!" - Written by Michelle Wu, a first year student at Stenden South Africa.
"Hola todo el mundo (Hello everyone).
I came to Stenden South Africa this year (2011) as a second year student .My first semester at Stenden South Africa went quite well; I had a lot of support from students and staff, this made life a lot easier and settling more comfortable.
Stenden South Africa uses a learner centered approach through Problem Based Learning. I find this approach effective because it promotes collaborative learning, interaction and sharing ideas. It promotes active participation, hence learners don’t become passive in sessions, they become more involved and active in their own learning. The system encourages team work and cooperation. We also evaluate and give each other feedback at the end of the session. This helps us to identify our shortcomings and to react on them.
Stenden South Africa learners come from all the corners of the globe, this gives us an opportunity to mingle, share cultural experiences and also to appreciate each other’s differences and make friends. I have made quite a few and plan on visiting when I set my foot off Stenden South Africa.
We have lots of sporting activities on campus, like football, rugby, volley ball and netball, to mention a few. We also have working out activities which are mostly preferred by ladies, like Pilates, aerobics, Zumba etc. These activities bring the Stenden South Africa community together to practice, workout, socialize, unwind and enjoy each other’s company outside the lecture hall, and to end the day in a healthy body, mind and soul.
I hope you all enjoy living and studying in Stenden South Africa.
