“A lot is happening across different continents in terms of world news, politics, sports, entertainment amongst others, which we strongly believe that the fellows need to stay afloat with. With this provision, it is our plea that the students make good use of it to help them with their studies or course work in the long run,” she explained.
“With cable connections to nine apartments, the entire flat will be covered with access to DStv cable network with a variety of channels that will not only inform and educate the university students but also entertain them as they wind down from hectic lectures.” Joan remarked.
