Fireworks and Wine Cap First Graduation Send-Off Party

Date Posted: Nov 2, 2009 at 01:26:50 AM


It was their second-to-the-last day of being a student and Adamson University, their second home for the past few years, wanted to make it a little more special.

 

On October 28, 2009, some 300 students took part in the first ever Graduation Send-Off Party held by Adamson University for its October 2009 graduates. The Office for Institutional Advancement, Office for Student Affairs, and Information Technology Center spearheaded the event together with the help of Mass Com professor Edward Gonzales.

 

The simple program featured testimonials from University President Fr. Gregg Bañaga Jr., C.M., VP for Academic Affairs Fr. Kiko Magnaye Jr., C.M., and AdU alumni Engr. Gilbert Cruz, vice president of multinational manufacturing company Bostik and guest of honor for the evening. OIA’s Alumni Relations Officer Marvin Bello showed off the voice that made him famous with his rendition of “This is The Moment,” a tribute to the graduating class.

 

Afterwards, graduates raised their glasses of wine as a toast to the years of hardship and backbreaking projects as well as to years of friendship and shared bond while singing Auld Lang Syne. Fireworks then lit up the night sky, and with it came the cheers of students who have finally made it.

 

The AdU administration hopes to make a tradition out of the graduation send-off party. With the “Octoberians” being the first to enjoy such a gathering, plans are already being shaped for a bigger one for the March 2010 graduates. Yael Esperat
