NWU, Mafikeng Campus, Cultural Office

Welcome to the Cultural Office

Welcome to an exciting educational experience.  We hope you will have a rewarding and successful academic year.  We are here to support your success as members of this University.

The campus is a home to diverse cultures and an extraordinary performance space.  Through students’ clubs, exhibitions and performances, the NWU is providing the local and university community with the opportunity to learn, celebrate and understand diverse cultures and provide functional resources where all registered students can enjoy their co-curricular and leisure time interest.
We encourage you not only to transform yourselves but also this campus.  Great educational institutions are often known by two qualities; their extraordinary history and their ability to lead with new ideas.  Throughout the last thirty years, each generation of students has strengthened this campus and made it a better place for students who followed.  Student idealism has left a transforming imprint upon this campus and we hope our current students will have the same effect.
