Adamson University’s Architecture Team A won first place in Arkwiz 2010, a quiz bee participated in by architecture schools, in its latest edition which took place last March 10 at the NISMED Building inside the UP Diliman campus. Arkwiz is conducted by the UP College of Architecture.
Rodelon Ramos, Rene John Asa, and alternate Marvin Romero formed Team A, which won against eighteen other teams. Last year’s winner Bulacan State University settled for third place this year via its Team B.
