Published

     FEBRUARY 20, 2013—Students of the College of Education together ended their college week, which started on the Valentine’s Day, in a general assembly that featured a dinner, raffle, and concert at the Plaza Mayor.

     Titled ‘Gabi ng mga Sikat,’ it was the second year the College of Education Student Council (CESC) decided to hold this event.

     “We asked for opinions during Central Board meetings and it turned out that a lot of students enjoyed last year’s Gabi ng mga Sikat,” said CESC Internal Vice President Janella Nazal.

     No less than the Silent Sanctuary performed on stage before Educ students. Faculty members and students also performed that night. Prizes ranging from gift certificates to appliances were given away as part of the raffle.

     The event also served as an awarding ceremony to the winners of the two contests they had during their college week.

     The Elementary Education Society grabbed the title ‘Educ’s Best Dance Crew’ after winning the ‘Educ Dance Battle’ held last February 18. On the other hand, special education student Claire Borja won in the second season of ‘Educ Got Talent’ held last February 19.

Week full of activities
     Aside from the three mentioned activities, the CESC also had a Valentine’s Day gimmick during the day of hearts. In the form of a speed dating, students socialized through exchanging questions and answers with a partner over a given time.

     A college mass was also held the same day, led by their regent, Fr. Maximo P. Gatela, OP.

     A foods and goods bazaar was launched the following day, February 15. ‘Zumbatuhan’ was also held, a physical activity composed of two parts.

     Done at the UST Field, Educ students did warm-up exercises, much like in Zumba. The main event was when they threw small plastics containing dissolved cornstarch. This was done in rounds, defeating the other team when they were out of players. Winning this was the Special Education majors.

     “Majority of the activities focused on bonding among the whole college. We want to strengthen the relationship within the college and let others know that it is fun in the College of Education,” Nazal said.

Vegas-themed
     With the overall theme of Las Vegas, the Education Week was titled ‘Scene City: Educ Goes to Vegas.’ According to Nazal, “Las Vegas was just a small city before it grew into something big and wonderful. Just like in Educ, we want to let others know that even if we are small in population, we shine bright and even brighter than others.”

     Aside from Gabi ng mga Sikat, their college parade was in line with this theme, with the students’ costumes inspired by cards, roulettes, dices, and slot machines. Leading them were the 2012 candidates of The Search for the Ideal Education Personalities.

     Asked of what she thinks can be improved of their college week, Nazal said, “It would be the manner of encouraging the students to join and letting them know how fun it would be if they would participate.”
