Accountancy celebrates college week

Published

on

 

     THE Alfredo M. Velayo-College of Accountancy (AMV-COA) welcomed the second semester with the celebration of its 8th founding anniversary from November 7 to 9.

     The celebration concluded with the Mr. and Ms. Accountancy Personalities 2012 pageant on November 9 at the Medicine Auditorium.

     Charles Santos and Heidi Laquian were crowned as Mr. and Ms. Accountancy 2012, while Emmanuel Ellis and Charlene Kimberly Hizon reigned as this year’s Ambassadors of Goodwill.

     Meanwhile, the 7th Season of the AMV Idol, which was held last November 7 at the Medicine Auditorium, aimed to search for the hidden voice talents of Accountancy students.

     “If you feel that you really have the talent, don’t doubt yourself,” said this season’s AMV Idol winner Paula Dungca in Filipino.

Enrichment programs
     The Accountancy Student Council (ASC) offered the 2-day project “Recess: Recreational Enriching Classes for Enhancing Students’ Skills” last November 7 and 8 at the AMV classrooms.

     It is an annual project that offers lessons on singing, dancing, photography, hosting, Nihonggo, and Mandarin with two new classes introduced this year: flaring and theatre arts.

     According to ASC Vice President Janine Cedie Dimaculangan, Paci Rhutmos, AMV’s official dance troupe, headed the dancing class, while students from Mediatrix taught in the theatre arts class. The flaring and Mandarin classes were mentored by two students from the College of Tourism and Hotel Management and Faculty of Engineering, respectively.

     “Paul Quiambao mentored the students in photography class. For singing, we invited another professional, Froilan Calixto,” Dimaculangan added. “For hosting, we had Ms. Dianne Querrer, alumna of AMV-COA and former courtside reporter of UST.”

     Also, a seminar dubbed “Bangon Kabataan: Kilos Para sa Bayan!” was organized last November 7 at the AMV Multipurpose Hall, featuring “Laugh with God Today!” Author Michael Angelo Lobrin.

     “Layunin ng council na ma-inspire ang mga kabataan na makibahagi sa pagbangon ng Pilipinas,” Dimaculangan said. “May kredibilidad siya (Lobrin) sapagkat malawak ang karanasan niya sa paglilingkod sa kabataan at sa simbahan.”

Student-professor bond
     Their college week would not have been completed without “Spotlight: The Accountancy Variety Show” and the “Accountaball 2012,” exposing the talents of their professors both on stage and on court.

     The Variety Show was held at the AMV Courtyard last November 8 which featured singing and dancing Accountancy professors.

     The AMV community gathered at the P. Noval Court afternoon of November 9 to witness the basketball and volleyball matches of the students against their professors.

     “We in the Accountancy Student Council believe that with the variety show, there would be a more comfortable relationship between the students and their professors,” Dimaculangan said.

‘Diversified in strengths, united in spirit’
     The college also held a parade dubbed as “Fused: Diversified in strengths, united in spirit” last November 9, at the university grounds. Each section showcased the culture of the country from the United Nations assigned to them.

     Section 3A2 represented Cape Verde and was awarded as the parade’s champion and the Best in Class Spirit, while3A1, Angola, and 4A2, South Korea, placed 1st and 2nd, respectively.

     Also recognized in the parade were Ms. Columbia of 1A14 and Mr. Ireland of 2A18 who were announced as Mr. and Ms. Fused 2012.

     Further, a bazaar was organized at the AMV Courtyard from November 7 to 9.
