The Alumni Café Jam was launched recently by the UP Visayas (UPV) Office of Alumni Relations (OAR), with various alumni groups, classes, batches and associations as co-sponsors.
An al fresco musical jamming session at the UPV Alumni Terrace, The Alumni Café Jam aims to strengthen ties between and among UP alumni groups, associations, classes and batches.
The kick-off session was sponsored by UP High School Batch ’92 on March 24, 2017. UPV Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development Prof. Evelyn Belleza, Prof. Dea Doromal, UP Hamili/Hamilia Alumni Association members, Pretty Farm Boys, and UPAA officers and board members, led by UPHS Batch ’92 Class President and UPV UPAA President Rosendo Arandela III, graced the event.
As part of its 52nd Anniversary festivities, the UP Hamili/Hamilia Alumni Association hosted The Alumni Café Jam‘s second session on April 21, 2017. The session featured a live acoustic performance by UP Hamili alumnus Pablito Araneta.
The UP Hamili/Hamilia Alumni Association, UPHS Batch ’89, and Sotech Alumni Association will co-host other Alumni Café Jam sessions later this year.
The Alumni Café Jam is open to UP alumni. The UPV Alumni Terrace can accommodate a maximum of thirty people. Musical sessions usually run from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
