11 to 15 August 2014 is the first ever Stellenbosch University Parliament Week.
We are hosting the first
ever Parliament Week in Stellenbosch between 11 and 15 August. The idea behind
the week is to get students exited about politics and encourage them to take
part when it comes to matters such as transparency, accountability and
democratic governance. Our theme is 'get involved' with the objective to enhance
citizenship amongst students.

Residents traditions necessary or just resisting change
Does residents loyalty lead to the development of an elitist attitude of us and them amongst students?
Is racsism a issue which need a attention in Stellenbosch or are there more pressing social issues, if so what?
Does the desparity in the attention that is given to resident and pso leave students feeling residents students are more important than those of PSO?
As an student do you feel that there are certain degrees such as Ba that are of a lesser value than other degrees?
Is the language policy at SU bringing students of different cultures closer together or further apart?
This generation of young students are seen as being apathetic, is this true?
