First Year’s Information
The best year of your life awaits you!
From day one you become a part of something that is much greater than you are, and you realise that you are now in a place where you will become a grown man.
The activities, traditions and life lessons that you learn and experience will stay with you forever. The opportunities are limitless, and the people living with you might be just friends to begin with, but they will become your brothers. With the guidance of your First Your Guardian, you will become part of House Mopanie, and learn to call it home with pride. Use every opportunity House Mopanie gives you, of which there will be an abundance of, and live every moment to the fullest.
To be a Peppie in House Mopanie is an honour only bestowed on a selected few. This is a privilege which distinguishes the people who walked our corridors since the inception of this extraordinary institution from any other. The structures formed by our predecessors develop our Peppies from humble first years, to leaders in society with world class degrees.
Grab every opportunity: academic, sport, culture, Mopanie traditions and activities!
Live life as a Peppie of Mopanie to do the residence and yourself proud!
