Greetings, fellow Thomasians!
This year marks the fourth year of TomasinoWeb (TomWeb!) as a recognized university-wide organization and online student publication of the University of Santo Tomas.
As a young organization, TomWeb has undergone several transformations both in its organizational structure and website format. This year, it has been divided into four departments namely writing, web development, photography and digital arts which represent TomWeb’s major fields of interests. These departments (each with appointed heads) , including the human resources, are being managed by the executive board of officers.
With a fresh start in its form and structure, TomWeb endeavors to become one of the immediate sources of online information to the Thomasian community. The articles ranging from news, sports, features, and literary hope to provide a timely account of the happenings in student organizations and the University. A newly added section, blogs, intends to foster a “reader-friendly” content where Thomasians can easily relate to.
TomWeb plans to update its content fortnightly, but the breaking news will be posted once a story breaks in. With more people working behind the organization, we are looking forward for a bigger and better TomWeb this academic year.
On a lighter note, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to my colleagues (which we fondly refer to as “QuadCore”) and to our members who exerted their time and effort to make this TomWeb v4.0 possible.
It was a tough job given some limitations in our resources (which also hampered its early launching) but I believe, it was the fervent passion and enthusiasm to learn and to excel that will keep the organization intact.
TomWeb has still a long way to go, but I am optimistic that it will keep moving forward not only this year but also for the years to come. The launching of our website is just the beginning of something big. As our philosophy goes, “We are ordinary people yet we strive to do extraordinary things.”
We are TomasinoWeb, the league of extraordinary Thomasians.
