Faculty of Arts Dean Merit Awards Ceremony Top Arts students honoured
The University of the Western Cape’s (UWC) Faculty of Arts hosted their Dean’s Merit Awards on Monday 28 October 2013 at UWC’s Library Auditorium.
The awards are aimed at recognising and honouring top students from the Faculty of Arts for their hard work.
Welcoming the honoured guests, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Professor Duncan Brown, said the students had come to the right place. “At UWC you have the best resources to become great at what you want to become. We should not forget that without the support of family, lecturers and faculty officers, the success of the students would not be possible,” he said.
“Study stress is part of being a student, but the key is to push through the difficult times, and you will know when you achieve your success,” he said.
Professor Brown encouraged students to be ambitious, but cautioned them not to confuse this with being unethical on their journey to greatness. “Dream big, work hard and you will get there.”
