The Supreme Student Council (SSC) of IAU held its first-ever Hawaiian Acquaintance Party on July 20, 2012 at Maribago Bluewaters Resort. It was attended by no less than a thousand students from the different colleges, including faculty members, who were dressed to the nines in their vibrant floral beach attires.
The program highlighted the launching performances of the IAU Performing Arts, IAU Chorale, and an oath-taking ceremony of the SSC and Departmental officers which was conducted by the adviser himself, Atty. Vicente Roco. But the hype reached fever-pitched when the Dormboys presented a jaw-dropping dance number. The showcase of song and dance presentations concluded with the lighting of the sky lanterns.
SSC Officer Michelle Casas in an interview about the event preparations said, “It’s really tiresome. You always go home late. You need to multi-task as well just so you can catch up with your academics. There’s no place for dilly-dallying because time is running after us.”
After that day, reviews foraged the social networking sites. “Trending,” they said.
BSAM-III Carolyn Yangco was quick to express that the acquaintance party was nice. The performers looked very professional on stage. In short, she was really entertained. Airwatch, the College publication, also gave their word on the affair. It underscored that the acquaintance party was a big success although there are still many aspects which need improvement. But for most of the students, the night was truly memorable.
“It’s such a nice feeling that all your efforts paid off,” quipped Casas.
Indeed, the students felt that this year’s SSC officers made a good impression. What’s in store for the student body has really yet to be seen.
