Prof. Liezel Frick reviews Going to University in the Journal of Student Affairs in Africa (JSAA): “Going to University: The influence of Higher Education on the lives of young South Africans (Case, Marshall, McKenna & Mogashana, 2017) provides a much-needed reason for hope and respite amidst the turmoil. […] The contribution of Going to University forces the reader to (re-)consider the current university sector’s potential to nurture the creative potential of students, which requires time, resources and space for more flexible programme structures, improved student support structures, an investment in developing creative higher education pedagogies, as well as research that may not have an immediate and applied impact.”
