Following the success of last year’s Back2Varsity campaign, Menlyn Park Shopping Centre and Tuks FM have again joined forces to continue their support of students of the University of Pretoria. In 2018, the partnership was able to provide approximately 170 students with meals for six months.

Research conducted by the Higher Education Department estimates that about 216,000 students in South Africa are without suitable accommodation, and almost 400,000 beds are needed to meet its enrolment targets for 2030. This has resulted in thousands of squatting tertiary students needing urgent support.

“For this reason, in 2019 the Back2Varsity campaign will continue to support students from disadvantaged backgrounds by providing them with necessities such as canned foods, stationery, toiletries and blankets amongst other things which will remain accessible to them throughout the year,” explains Olive Ndebele, General Manager at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. “We recognise the need to support students. For this reason, we will continue working with Tuks FM to ensure both the shopping centre and its retailers are able to help them reach their academic goals.”

Menlyn Park Shopping Centre has set up collection boxes at their Starbucks Court, Ground Floor. These collection points are linked to customer purchases aimed at encouraging the Pretoria community and corporates to donate to students at the University of Pretoria from 28 January – 15 February 2019. Some retailers will match the donations made by customers, while others are encouraging customer support by linking their donations to Back2School prices.

“It is without a doubt that the donations received last year brought change to the students’ lives by ensuring that they had meals to sustain them during the day and enabled them to succeed in their studies. Hunger is an obstacle which we need to remove to ensure that students are not compromised in terms of attaining academic success,” said Dr Matete Madiba, Director: Student Affairs at the University of Pretoria.

Leanne Kunz, Station Manager of Tuks FM, says the radio station is only too happy to again be involved with an initiative as necessary and valuable as this one. “Many students are battling to keep their heads above water with the high costs involved with getting an education. The last thing they need is to also have to worry about where they’re going to get their next meal, or how they’re going to afford stationery or basic things they need to get them through the day. We were so encouraged by the success of last year’s event, and we’re determined to make Back2Varsity 2019 even more successful!”

The start of varsity is an exhilarating experience. You have finally completed matric and you are about to start studying what you actually love, or what you don’t necessarily love but have been accepted for. You are going to meet new people and put all that high school drama behind you! You feel as though you are on your way to a new life: you are an emerging adult – nothing gets sweeter than this. You will be living away from home and making your own rules… and the freedom! Yes, the freedom! No curfews or strict rules and being monitored – just the pure bliss of freedom, making new friends, meeting the love of your life (or not) and studying what you love!

Your first year in varsity is as exciting as it is challenging: no one can completely prepare you for it, just as no one can prepare you for any kind of change. The best a person can do is share experiences and hope that what we learn will at some point help you stay afloat. So here’s the reality:

Spatially, the university campus is BIG and you will have to attend classes that are so far apart – it will be almost impossible to skip cardio (because you have ten minutes to get to your next class – it’s not much, trust me). You will attend the wrong class for the first two weeks and discover new faces just before finals and wonder if these people were ever in your class to begin with. You will see student numbers that don’t necessarily start with “19” (which denotes the year in which a person begins their studies), it is not for you to judge or question, just mind your own. You will have too many friends or not so many friends, you will study hard and party harder (or vice versa), and you will eventually learn about balance and prioritizing. You will have various experiences, both delightful and dreadful, but the best part is the growth you encounter and the victory you witness at the end of the journey – however and whenever the journey ends.

In hopes of making your first year experience even more exciting and liveable, the Tuks FM family has some #FreshersAdvice for you:

  1. “Learn where the Thuto building is, it can get confusing. And finish your AIM module in your first year of studies.” – Suleyma Mustafa, Newsreader
  1. “Be prepared to walk in the wrong lecture hall at least twice. Just act cool, stand up, leave and keep it moving – it ain’t that deep.”- Thapelo Lekgwadi, Traffic presenter on Drive
  1. “Get familiar with the Library Services, it makes assignments much easier. Each faculty has its own section in Merensky. Attend lunch hour concerts on Thursdays at the Musaion.”- Angelica van Dou, Newsreader
  1. “The best toilet to take a dump in is in the EMS building (the ones you come across from the SSC). Also, join your module group chats and check your portal daily.”- Naledi Makgatho, Presenter.

And for the students who will be joining campus residence this year, Kopano Bookholane, a presenter at Tuks FM and Head of Community Engagement at House Mags, formerly known as House Magrietjie, had this to say: “When asked what advice I would give to a first year entering residence life I hesitate, because my lived experiences may not be another’s, and I guess that’s where I start: make residence life your own! Don’t live up to others’ experiences and expectations. Each class is different and therefore, will have different challenges, so make it your own. Within it all, it is about being relentlessly true to yourself and trusting in the magic of new beginnings.”

My final word of advice, which is equally as important as the others, is to make Tuks FM 107.2 the standard frequency on your radio: you will make amazing friends who will forever keep you company through great music and awesome chats.

Tuks FM wishes you all the best with your first year of varsity. Stay in school kids!

Deezer currently has 53 million licensed tracks in its library, with 14 million active monthly users in 180 countries. Users can listen to Tuks FM on Deezer on all devices.

Leanne Kunz, Tuks FM’s station manager, says the partnership means that the station will be even more accessible. “Whether we like it or not, more and more people, especially those in our market, are using streaming music services. The idea behind this partnership is to have a presence on these platforms so that we’re accessible not only via our website and our terrestrial FM signal, but now also to those listening to their favourite playlists on Deezer. Because let’s face it, playlists are great, but people still crave that personal connection which radio offers. So, when users want a break from their playlist to connect with someone, we’re there.”

Tuks FM is also available to stream on the radio station’s website, at www.tuksfm.co.za.
