COA, COEd win float, street dancing contest

An Indonesian themed float of the College of Agriculture was hailed first place in the float parade contest while a Vietnam themed street dance of the College of Education was the winner in the street dancing contest on September 14.

The university organized a float parade and street dancing competition to make the 108th Unified Foundation and Alumni Homecoming more remarkable, colourful, and festive with the theme, “Embracing ASEAN Integration: CMU`s Roles in Advancing Inclusive Education.”

This year`s competition is a collaborative effort of the Alumni Relations and Linkages Office (ARLO), CMU Alumni Association Incorporated (CMUAAI), and the Supreme Student Council (SSC).

There were nine competing teams who represented the different members of ASEAN countries and these were: College of Agriculture (Indonesia); College of Arts and Sciences (Malaysia); College of Business and Management (Myanmar); College of Education (Vietnam); College of Engineering (Cambodia); College of Forestry and Environmental Science (Thailand); College of Human Ecology (Laos); College of Nursing (Brunei); and the College of Veterinary Medicine (Singapore).

In an interview with Prof. Procopio B. Galendez Jr., Chairperson of the Department of Physical Education and chair of the parade committee he shared that this year`s competition is well-planned, organized, and unique.

“We have planned this [activity] ahead of time about two months, and we had a series of meetings with the other event organizers…” he added.

Prof. Galendez also stressed that this activity also aims to showcase the festivity and the culture of different ASEAN countries through street dancing performed by the selected dancers from various colleges and the parade of creative Floats.

“Winning this competition is about PRAYER, HARD WORK, and PATIENCE,” said John Lorence S. Pacuño, Chairperson of College of Agriculture Student Council (COASCO).

Mr. Pacuño added that even though their organization has no budget for the said competition, they strive hard to do some initiative to participate.

Hon. Glenn Kyle Gumapac, President of the Supreme Student Council (SSC), said during the interview that despite the climate condition the students of different colleges showed their full support and loudest cheers to their participants.

Akong nakita sa mga colleges which I`m proud of is that they are very serious about the competition wherein makita pud nimo ang willingness and eagerness nila to participate and to win the competition…,” he added.

Hon. Gumapac gave a piece of advice to the next student leaders to always cooperate and communicate with the CMUAAI, plan ahead of time, and allocate budget for the Unified Foundation activities.
