The Greens – portrait of place


Rhodes University in Grahamstown serves as a home away from home to more than 7000 students. On a day to day basis these students finds themselves living in Grahamstown, shopping in Grahamstown, and interacting with the other residents of Grahamstown, and yet they never fully integrate with the rest of the town. Instead students seclude themselves in university residences and private apartment blocks, where they lead radically different lifestyles. In this video we go inside one such student apartment complex, The Greens, and take an up-close look at the student lifestyle.
