The College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Association Oath Taking and Marketplace Training Event


"The imbalance of life is not based on what is external but a problem from within." These are the same words spoken by our guest speaker, Mr. Philip Romulo, who graced the first event of the College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Association Council, held last 18th of November, 2016, at Vienna Function Hall of New Horizon Hotel, City of Mandaluyong.

While waiting for the guests to arrive, the council hosted an acoustic playing of songs to set the atmosphere and tone of the night. The goal of the event is to launch an organization that shall serve as the bridge of the alumni back to their alma mater. The night kicked off by the jovial opening of our emcees, Ms. Coleen Bilaw and Mr. Royson dela Cruz, who are both alumni of the College of Arts and Sciences. Thereafter, a worship song, entitled 10,000 reasons, was sung to signify the multitudes of reason to celebrate the glory and blessings of the Lord. Later, Ms. Maricar Labong, the Event Manager of the Night and the Treasurer of the Council, made her opening remarks welcoming guests, friends, and the presence of the Grand Alumni Association Inc. (GAAI) Council. Next, the guest speaker of the night was introduced.

Mr. Philip Romulo, who is the Vice-President of Research and Development of Samsung Digital City, International, graced the event and shared about “Balancing Life’s Demands.” He shared about the symptoms of an imbalanced life, which includes busyness, emotional stress and pressure, low grade nagging guilt, financial debt, prayerlessness, and escapism. He also talked about his recent experience, which challenged his enduring tenacity and faith. Such encouraging words inspired the crowd and the professionals to fight the right battles in the marketplace.

Afterwards, Mr. Mark Roy Boado, the President of the GAAI, gave his inspirational talk as to the purpose of an Alumni Association and challenged the newly established college council to rise up to their calling. He then led the oath taking of the officers and charged them with the authority to reach out to the fruits of the University. Thereafter, from the President of GAAI to the President of the CAS-Alumni Council, Mr. John Peter de Leon, shared his vision for the organization and presented the upcoming plans of the organization. Mr. Joliver Lobo, the Vice-President Internal, made his closing statements of the night. The night ended in revelries and get together or some long lost friends and bridged the gap of generations of alumni.

Connection, Collaboration, and Cooperation shall be the council’s vision and motivation. The challenge will not be easy but we believe that there is no path to greatness that is done in lenience. With the help of God and our fellow alumni, we see things with a light of hope, a path with a mission, and a journey of friendship.
