The 2018 UP General Alumni Homecoming, annually hosted by the UP Alumni Association (UPAA), will have for its theme “Mga Haligi ng Lahi” (“Pillars of the Nation”). The reunion will be held on August 18, 2018, Saturday, at 3:00 p.m., at Ang Bahay ng Alumni, R. Magsaysay Ave., UP Diliman, Quezon City.
The 2018 reunion will highlight the celebrating Jubilarians – members of the 60th, 50th, 40th, and 25th Jubilee classes, namely, Class of 1958 (Diamond), Class of 1968 (Golden), Class of 1978 (Ruby), and Class of 1993 (Silver). They will stage presentations reminiscent of their college days at the different U.P. campuses.
In the same event, the 2018 UPAA Distinguished Alumni Awardees will be honored as shining examples of “Mga Haligi ng Lahi” for having best exemplified the Alma Mater’s ideals of service, excellence and leadership – with their outstanding accomplishments and services rendered to their communities which have brought glory upon glory to our alma mater, the national university.
Other activities scheduled during the Homecoming week are the annual Alumni Council meeting and UPAA Chapters meeting, which will convene on Friday, August 17, 2018, at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively.
Jubilarians are encouraged to actively participate in the Homecoming, as well as contribute articles to the 2018 UP Alumni Homecoming Yearbook, which will commemorate the affair. To be featured in the yearbook’s photo gallery, Jubilarians must submit passport-size pictures (preferably in formal or semi-formal attire) to the UPAA. (If emailed, photos should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.)
All UP alumni and friends are also invited to place greetings, group photos, family portraits, and company advertisements in the yearbook (rates are on the UPAA website). Deadline is May 31, 2018, but it will be greatly appreciated if materials can be submitted much earlier.
