The aim of the research on which this article is based was to understand the behavioural changes of the target student population over time to ensure that future prevention programmes are more effective in changing behaviour. This study reports on quantitative data collected at the University of the Western Cape over a six-year period between 2007 and 2012. All the students attending the orientation sessions and who were willing to complete the anonymous questionnaire during each of the six years were included in the study. Data were collected on the following aspects and subjects: sexual activity, age at first sexual encounter, number of sexual partners, condom usage, knowledge of how to use a condom, perceived ability to discuss condoms usage with a sexual partner, perception of HIV risk and HIV testing as well as the intention to be tested. Reported alcohol and drug usage, as well as depressive symptoms, was also recorded. The percentage of students reporting having had vaginal sex prior to entering university increased from 44% in 2007 to 51% in 2012 but, alarmingly, the consistent use of condoms decreased from 60% in 2007 to 51% in 2012. The average onset age of about 15.6 years for males and 16.7 years for females for vaginal sex did not change over the six-year period. No difference in smoking patterns or drug use was seen over the period of the study, but the number of entering students who indicated that they consumed alcohol increased significantly from 48% in 2007 to 58% in 2012. HIV testing increased from 19% in 2007 to 47% in 2012, whereas the intention to be tested showed no significant change over the period. Although students increasingly reported that they knew enough about HIV/AIDS (63% in 2007 and 69% in 2012), about a third reported suffering from AIDS fatigue. Prevention efforts targeted at those incoming first-year students who are not yet sexually active (about 45% in this study) should be developed and should take into account the multiplicity of factors that appear to influence their sexual debut.

Does the college have any particular focus, theme or regional emphasis? Please also detail any particular highlights. Duino is a small historic village in the north-east of Italy, inhabited both by Italian and Slovenespeaking people, close to Trieste and Slovenia. This village has hosted us since 1983. The choice of Duino as the home of the only College in Italy was not casual, any more than was the decision to avoid isolating the students in a separate campus. It was intended that they should have a full opportunity of experiencing the richness and diversity of the surrounding area. The neighbourhood of Duino is a meeting point between three historically significant cultures in Europe: the Latin, the Slav and the Germanic. Traces of the fruitful intermingling of these cultural roots are to be found in the faces of the people, in their dialects, their architect, their food, their popular traditions. The history of the area is the answer to the question: Why Duino? Here the students can understand the urgent need for peace, at the same time themselves offering tangible evidence of international understanding and tolerance. The college from the very beginning has laid special emphasis on its relationship with Central and Eastern Europe - conscious of the strategic nature of its position, and reflecting the policies of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs - 35% of its students come from this area.
