O Week 2009: If U Connect, Protect!

At the beginning of the year, all first-year students and some staff members attended workshops on sexual and reproductive health facilitated by ACEs (AIDS Community Educators). Each student received a 1GB USB wristband as a gift for their journey towards greater wisdom. The USB drives contained some important information on HIV/AIDS and campus services. Over the course of this year's Orientation, about 5,000 students attended the 80 workshops that were held in various Faculties.

During O Week, HAICU and the ACEs also provided information and resources at a stall on Jammie Plaza. One highlight of the week was a fashion design competition, hosted by local DJ, Suga. Creativity and teamwork were on full display as students rushed to create outfits using miscellaneous items, including condoms and the USB wristbands. Suga shared information on HIV/AIDS and UCT resources at the event, which found the Plaza full with students and staff.
