Most people are not able to start a serious relationship with someone else without first completing a social media deep-dive on that person.

PDBWhy: What I miss most about campus

The University of Pretoria’s campuses are loved by students for many different reasons. As a result of the lockdown, students could no longer enjoy everything the campuses have to offer.
