“With all the enlightening lessons of the past, the emerging surprising of the present and the thrilling uncertainties of the future, what matters most is we survive and surpass these trying times with the passion, dedication and commitment of an Antique’s Pride,” Mrs. Shella Sandoy, faculty of College of Arts and Sciences, said.
The majority of the graduates included students from the College of Teacher Education, College of Business and Accountancy, College of Engineering and Architecture, College of Computer Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, and Open Learning in the campus.
Antique Representative Loren Legarda made a special appearance via a pre-recorded video to congratulate the graduates and shared some words of wisdom.
“With great freedom comes great responsibility, but with a fulfillment of these responsibilities comes even more freedom for yourself and for others. You have the freedom to make the easy choice or the challenging one. You have the freedom to do what you wish,” Hon. Loren Legarda said in a video message.
The virtual graduation followed the daytime activities in celebration of UA’s 67th founding anniversary.
This graduation’s theme was “Social Responsibility, Responsiveness, Relevance and Resilience for Excellence.”
