PADYAK culminates in an alumni kamUstAhan

Alumni KamUstAhan culminated the 6-day PADYAK which was a co-celebration of the 1st National Higher Education Day and 27th Founding Anniversary of Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

This online kamUstAhan which was held via Zoom and Facebook live on May 22, 3:00 pm, featured the virtual reunion of University of Antique (UA) alumni while each college presented their recent achievements, program offerings (undergraduate and graduate), Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) status and level of accreditation.

“Our alumni are the concrete manifestation that this university is true to its thing as Antique’s pride. Each of the thousands UA graduates who has made an impact wherever they are, is an affirmation that UA is true to its vision, mission, goals and objectives of producing graduates who are not just globally competitive but compatible as well,” Prof. Jeselyn O. Gambi, Alumni Affairs director, remarked.

Prof. Jeselyn O. Gambi, Alumni Affairs director, led the online alumni kamUstAhan on May 22, 2021 at 3:00 pm via Zoom and Facebook Live.

Prof. Gambi added that this online kamUstahan does not only acknowledge outstanding alumni, but all graduates of UA who have proven themselves in their chosen field and upheld UA’s core values.

Likewise, Dr. Pablo S. Crespo Jr., university president, said in his video message that “we are tracing our alumni and more than just tracing the alumni, we would like later on to engage [them] to many activities, especially telling [them] kamusta na ang UA kadya (how is UA doing now).

“Despite the pandemic, I would like to believe that we are doing good in UA, in the area of instruction, in our flexible learning modalities, in our research, in our extension, in our engagement with different funding agencies, and of course in the production side of UA,” Dr. Crespo said.

Aside from the short greetings and messages of the alumni, there were select alumni from the colleges who were given airtime to talk about being an alumnus or alumna.

One alumna who gave a message was Lorgie Mae Inocencio-Tagmon, from the College of Business and Accountancy.

She expressed that the alumni should look back to their university, by attending these kind of activities and providing anything they could offer; she believed that UA played a huge role to whoever the alumni become and wherever they are right now.
