Welcome to Stellenbosch University

The Benches


Welcoming messages in different languages (Braille, Sign Language, San, Xhosa, Zulu, Xitsonga, Tshivenda, SiSwati, Sesotho, Setswana, Ndebele, Sepedi, Kaaps, Muslim Kaaps, English, Afrikaans) were placed on 30 benches on the Rooiplein (the central square on campus). These sayings were collected by General Linguistic students.​
