Last week Thursday, the SEBS committee held an exclusion briefing for 1st years, at the new Commerce building on West campus.
The briefing informed the students about the possibilities of financial and academic exclusion. Former SRC president Tebogo Thothela advised the students, on the importance of making an effort to consult with their lecturers and to ask for help before it’s too late. Justice Nkomo, treasurer of the SRC encouraged the students to come forward and ask for financial assistance as they have the means to put people in contact with financial sponsors. Academic officer Imaan Carrim told the students that the briefing was not about telling them what to do after exclusion, but rather to help them prevent exclusion.
