First Year Motivation

The First Year Advising Team compiled an inspiring podcast for first-year students in collaboration with Mme Lucy Sehloho, fondly known as Mother First Year. We thought who best to motivate first years than someone who has served as a mentor and system of support to many first-year students throughout the years. Mme Lucy is a product of the University of the Free State herself and shares her own experience as a Kovsie because we all know that ‘Only a Kovsie knows the feeling’.
