Celebrating best academic performers: UJ adds excelling first-year students into UJenius Club

On Wednesday, 26 February 2020, UJ welcomed best performing first-year students into the UJenius Club. These are students who were selected to be part of the Orange Carpet due to their outstanding academic performances in high school. The Top Three UJenius Senior Club Members from the seven faculties and the College of Business and Economics received gifts at this event.

Event speakers included Mr Kananelo Sikhakhane, a UJenius Club Student, with a keynote address by Dr Buyi Sondezi (Senior Lecturer of Physics – PhD in Physics). Interestingly, Dr Sondezi is the first woman in Africa in her field to be awarded this degree in the field of Experimental Physics of Highly Correlated Matter.
