About Oude Molen

Oude Molen is a Private Student Organization at Stellenbosch University, and forms a part of the Victoria Cluster, which aims to provide a platform off of which its members have the opportunity to develop themselves, academically and in all other spheres outside of the classroom.

Oude Molen's vision and mission

Oude Molen strives to enhance the holistic development of all its members, by providing opportunity for growth and development through a variety of opportunities outside of the classroom such as leadership, sports and cultural activities.

Oude Molen's values

Oude Molen is governed by its values: Respect, Unity, Belonging, Balance, Inclusivity and Compassion. These values allow us to make sure that each and every member is made to feel welcome and that they are able to participate in our activities.

Oude Molen's history

Established in 1973 as one of the 4 initial Private Student Organisations (PSOs), and named after the old water mill which operated in Stellenbosch, and now stands as artwork in the town centre, Oude Molen has always provided a home away from home for students coming from near and far, allowing them to grow and learn from each other as they advance through the most exciting time of their lives.

Activities and offerings

Oude Molen prides itself on offering a wide variety of opportunities and activities to its members. Throughout the year, there will be a host of events ranging from social, to cultural to critical engagement, which we hope will satisfy the needs of each and every one of our members.
We also provide many sporting activities, ranging from sports such as cricket, rugby and hockey, to basketball and table tennis, again aiming to allow every member to participate in something they enjoy.
Another big part of Oude Molen is our cultural activities, and our 3 biggest cultural events are Toneelfees, a series of small productions performed and written by members, Molasse Sêr, and probably our biggest cultural event, Klein SU Acapella, an acapella singing competition. Added to these wonderful opportunities, we also offer leadership opportunities within the PSO which allow for development outside of the classroom environment.

Mentorship offered by Oude Molen

The mentors are a special group of individuals that dedicate themselves to helping newcomers make the adjustment to their new life in university as smoothly as possible, and continue to provide support and friendship to our members throughout the year.
