The University of Fort Hare held a Departmental Social Function / Prize Ceremony last week. All the students that achieved prizes and certificates for academic excellence from ERSA, were present. Our Dean of Commerce handed out the certificates and cheques to the relevant students. The audience consisted of other HoD's, Economics staff members from Alice and East London and some of our undergraduate and postgraduate students. The ceremony was followed by finger snacks and refreshments. Overall, the function was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Some of the students who attended the function commented that it was encouraging to see student's performance being recognized and commended in some way.
