Vergeet-My-Nie women's residence (VMN) has been a proud part of student life at the NWU Potchefstroom campus since 1973 and has since then stood out above the rest. Vergeet-My-Nie is our home away from home, a place where we can be ourselves and where we make friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Here we grow together, laugh together and cry together and in this process we forge close ties with each other. Vergeet-My-Nie's motto is: "Go for Gold for Him" and each resident is hereby encouraged to express her talents and pursue her dreams. Our logo is the famous VMN flower called Kasparus. Kasparus winks at every resident and visitor who enters her doorstep. The flower is also synonymous with the culture of kindness and caring we grow in the residence.
