On the afternoon of February 06, in coordination with the Office of Alumni Relations (OAR), UPV Chancellor Clement Camposano met with UPV Alumni from Antique at San Jose, as part of his administration’s long-term goal of establishing and reinforcing the relationship between the university and its alumni.
The schedule also became a platform for the OAR to conduct its regular event Kamusta Ka Iskolar ng Bayan (KAKAIBA) which also seeks to maintain university-alumni ties. The KAKAIBA program visits alumni from all UPV Alumni chapters in the region each year. The event was very casual and cordial, and was held at the second floor of the San Jose McDonald’s.
Those in attendance first each introduced themselves, their current affiliations, and spoke about their favourite teachers during their college days. The Chancellor next introduced himself and spoke briefly about his administration’s plans for UPV. The alumni later posed queries to the chancellor and even shared some light-hearted college experiences with the group. Lastly, OAR Director Rey Gonzales gave a brief discussion on university and alumni-related programs which the Antique alumni could participate in.
This was the first time that many Antique alumni met the Chancellor and OAR Director since the two assumed office in 2020. At the end of the event, the younger alumni expressed their delight at meeting the Chancellor, as it brought them closer to the university’s highest official, and dispelling for them prior notions they had about the administration being some sort of distant ‘ivory tower’. Among those in attendance were Mr. Nocolasito Calawag, President of UP Alumni Association Antique Chapter, Mr. Flord Nicson Calawag, Dr. Susan Atienza, Mr. Rani Rodriguez, Ms. Saredith Sola and Ms. Lumen Marie Rose Quanico, among others.
