The Dean of Students office urges all students to take good care in terms of prevention of petty crime such a theft of cellphones and
other personal items. The Head of Grahamstown Police indicated to the university authorities that a large amount of these types of crimes happen through pure negligence and would be preventable through basic vigilance. Please make a habit of keeping your belonging secured.
There also has been a high incidence of arrests of student for shoplifting. In most cases students perform these acts simply as a prank. The consequences of this can be far-reaching for your future where for instance you may be barred from registering for a certain profession or you may be denied an international travel visa due to a criminal record. The police and the Courts will give no special treatment to Rhodes students.
Please help us to raise funds so that we can give all our students a chance to access online teaching and learning. Covid-19 has disrupted our students' education. Don't let the digital divide put their future at risk. Visit www.ru.ac.za/rucoronavirusgateway to donate
