Why should res be boring if you can play games and have fun?
Well, Longfellow aims to bridge this gap between academics and fun. The Longfellow Residence of the North-West University in Vanderbijlpark (NWU Vaal) hosted their annual fun game night 19 March 2017.
“The event was inspired by the residence’s culture that is the vibrant student culture”, said the Vice-Prim of Longfellow Tshegofatso Letsoalo.
Letsoalo further explained that the event drew its inspiration from Human Rights Day. This particular games night was different from the previous ones because a new quiz game about the history of South Africa was introduced. The winner of the quiz won a ticket to the Fresher’s event. The other games that were played that night were Monopoly, 30 seconds, Pictionary, Scrabble, Battle of the sexes and many more.
“The aim of the night was to bring about social cohesion among residents of Longfellow, as well as to offer them an opportunity to acquire knowledge on not only academics but also about the world they live in”, comments Kabelo Henedzani the Arts and culture officer of Longfellow.
The participants of the event were very eager to know what the mystery prize was. Their level of participation led to a draw between three people that were broken by means of Tshegofatso asking them the name of the Longfellow female supervisor. He stated that we can expect similar events in the future and that they aim to uphold the culture and tradition of the residence.
The residence of Longfellow Village surely knows how to have fun!
