Extraordinary professor honoured in a special way
Various theologians of the North-West University (NWU) took part in a special conference during which one of its extraordinary professors in the New Testament was honoured with a Festschrift. Prof Jan du Rand received the special edition of In die Skriflig/In Luce Verbi on his 70th birthday as Festschrift in which many of his colleagues and former students made contributions during the past years.
Academic year officially opened
“This campus of the North-West University is like a tree with its roots deeply embedded in its heritage with its rich history and character. The winds of change can blow, but the roots will keep the tree upright.” This was the message of Prof Fika Janse van Rensburg during the official opening of the academic year of the Potchefstroom Campus.
