One of the first adventures Fiancé and I went on was an exploration of his new school, the University of Cape Town. It’s truly an incredible campus.
It’s tucked in at the base of Devil’s Peak (the foggy mountain you see looming in the background of a lot these photos) and is divided into three levels (lower, middle, and upper campuses) which makes walking the campus a bit of a trek.
It was established in 1829 and is the oldest university in South Africa.
The school’s motto is “Good Hope” which is so optimistic and lovely and makes me happy inside.
Jameson Hall is the central building on upper campus, and it’s beautiful. It’s exactly what anyone thinks of when they picture higher education.
The most popular sport on campus is rugby. I am a huge football fan. I bleed green and yellow and am a master of hot wing frying and Saturday beer drinking. I hope rugby comes just as easily. Go Tigers…!
I’m so excited to get to take regular walks through a campus like UCT and for Fiancé to have the opportunity to study here!
