As far as exam venues go, Jameson was cold and drafty. But maybe the secret is to not write exams there and just go check it out instead. It's a lot like some other halls but I suppose special in its own way.

Only go if you have some personal connection with the university- I went with a friend who had gone there. Could be tied up with a visit to the Rhodes Memorial and the Irma Stern Museum.

have you ever looked up a long staircase to find a Tall Tower majestically looking down. if you have not, pay a visit to UCT to view Jameson Hall. if Architecture is your interest, then worth the visit.
