The official welcoming rights of the University is back after a three-year hiatus. 

AdU hosted Tatak Adamson to officially receive the freshmen and transferees of the SY 2023-2024 in the afternoon of September 29 at the Saint Vincent grounds. 

The event featured the new students clad in white shirts getting handprint marks from various University Administrators, which serve as their rite of passage as full-pledged Adamsonians. This year’s theme, Kakulayaan, revolves around inclusivity with every klasmeyt. 

University President Fr. Marcelo V. Manimtim, CM, in his remarks during the program, highlighted the true meaning of klasmeyt culture to the new members of the community – being one big family within the University.  

“Ang bawat isang estudyante ay dapat makaramdam na siya ay nabibilang sa isang maliit na pamilya,” the 6th President of Adamson U said. 

“Kung mayroon kayong pangangailangan, sana makalapit kayo [sa mga tao] who pledged that they would try to serve you.” 

Various homegrown artists such as Gravity Skills, Expertise, and Talents of Adamson University (GSET), HIMIG - Musicians of Adamson University (HIMIG) and Tinik Ng Teatro - Adamson University (TNT) performed during the after-event festivities. 

Born to be a Star Season 2 second runner-up Jannah Bocatiya, Political Science student Eliza Jane Maturan, and indie performers JADWIGA, Hey Moonshine and Daniel Paringit also graced the concert. 

The last Tatak was held last 2020, before the pandemic forced classes to be shifted online.
