One would think, with the number of students at the opening of registrations on 18 July 2012, that it was an election day. Enduring the freezing weather, hopeful students flocked to the Esíkia Mphahlele registrations hall, forming lines reminiscent of queues during general elections, to register for the second semester.

Inside the hall, where in contrast, it was a lot warmer, staff members were already hard at work,   serving those who arrived at the crack of dawn to register for the courses they had applied for.

Not to be outdone, the Centre for Business Management (CBM) sent out a task team consisting of marketing, registration and study material staff to be at the registrations centre to assist those students more suited to CBMís offering.

True to form, about one hundred or so students were attracted to the CBM marquee, which was prominently set up adjacent to the turnstiles entering the building precincts, asking one question or another. Some were obviously discouraged by the long queues and decided to come over to the marquee hoping that all their queries would be sorted by the CBM team, whose overall knowledge of the registrations process is really superb. In most instances the CBM team brought huge relief to somewhat disheartened students.
