De Wilgers is a proud and traditional residence that is a trendsetter at the NWU Potchefstroom campus. You will find that we are a brotherhood of men of God here. We are resourceful, steadfast and a residence in which any matric boy can dream to spend his university years.

Our ambition extends to heaven, but our feet are planted firmly on earth. Here we believe in values and we are diligent – here in the heart of the storm we have our eagle’s nest.
Isaiah 40:31: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings as eagles; They shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

In the shade of De Wilgers I see my people, my friends, my brothers and we love one another.
We stand for what we believe in, and we do not yield to anyone!
