TomasinoWeb, the premier digital media organization of the University of Santo Tomas, values the principles of journalistic integrity and its role as a part of the Thomasian community.

Some members of the University administration raised concerns regarding a photograph we posted last Wednesday, February 15, showing some College of Information and Computing Science (CICS) students in their Type B uniforms in front of the 7-Eleven branch at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion.

The organization was told that the photo has become a source of public ridicule toward CICS students, their College, and the University as a whole due to the supposed association of the CICS Type B uniform with the convenience store’s employee uniforms.

TomasinoWeb never intended to cause any harm to anyone. While we believe being a convenience store worker is honest work, we acknowledge that the photograph still caused a stir online, and for that we sincerely apologize.

To rectify this, we have removed the photograph from the album across all our social media platforms.
