South African Students Show the Way

South African Students Show the Way

An Interesting and recent development in South African Universities has been the extension of the activities of the various University Departments of Social Science.

Students in the Social Science faculty are doing excellent work throughout the country in investigating and studying at first hand some of the most complicated and urgent social problems as part of their practical work.

What many observers of our New Zealand University deprecate is the fact that our students tend to isolate themselves in their University centre, and cut themselves adrift from the perhaps more practical, more realistic outer world.

That our Sociology and Political Science Students should link the Universities with what might be the harsh realities, but nevertheless existing realities, cannot be denied.
