Baxter celebrates 50 years

04 August 2008

Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price welcomed UCT alumni to Baxter Hall's reunion, held from 25 to 26 July, in celebration of the residence's 50th anniversary.

"It feels a bit funny welcoming you to UCT when you should be welcoming me," commented Price, addressing about 180 alumni, spanning five decades of the university's history.

The programme also included talks on the history of the residence, and performances by the UCT School of Dance. Guests also attended Cissie, a play about the life of Cissie Gool, at the Baxter Theatre, and the reunion was concluded with a dinner at the residence the following evening.
