Centenary Publications

Stellenbosch University (SU) commemorated its centenary in 2018 with a richly illustrated publication, Stellenbosch University 100: 1918-2018.

In the first section of the book, Perspectives on 100 Years, seven authors trace this history from the University’s inception, through various challenges, including political and financial, to what it means to be a Matie in academia, sport and student life.

In the second section, the authors provide a glimpse of the academic activities over a century, as seen through the eyes of its ten faculties. In these pages, authored by various members of the University’s academic community, you can follow the path of a university that grew from a handful of people settling at the foot of Stellenbosch Mountain, into a vibrant and cosmopolitan community of more than 30 000 students and 3 000 staff members, spread over five campuses of this world-class academic institution.
