Super late post! (Sorry nman oh) haha.
What I am about to blog is the ORSEM (Orientation Seminar) 2012! Its a 3-day activity one week before the start of classes, intended to welcome the freshmen! Yes, our school has that! oh, it's not only for freshmen but also for transferees and returnees. So in three days, the University gets to show the freshies what Xavier University is really about. Btw, this is how my month of May ended and how my month of June began. ORSEM was from May 30-June 1.
May 29, 2012, we had our last practice for the OrSem Mass. Because it's Orsem, the Universtiy was filled with banners bearing the Atenean Spirit.
|AMDG+ means Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam. In English, it means for the greater glory of God.|
|Fight Fight Blue and White. the core colors of the Ateneo. During Cheerdance Competition, the contenders must incorporate in their chants the cheer of the Ateneo :)|
|Onward Crusaders. Xavier University has celebrated its diamond jubilee 3 years ago. Since then, the Crusaders are to move forward and go to the frontier.|
|(That's me, feeling the school spirit) hahaha!|
One Fight, One Glory. Xavier Rules. (bow)
The mass was to start at 9:00am so we have to be there at the gym by 8am. I arrived at the gym at around 8:15am and the ground floor of the gym were already filled! Loud Cheers filled the atmosphere!
|If you're wondering about the colors, the freshmen are required to wear their college colors.|
|I took a photo of the students on the second floor of the gym. Almost all of them were from the School of Business and Management.|
After the mass, we were free to do whatever we want. For the next couple of days, we hang out at the school and joined the freshmen as they toured around the campus.
|naging nostalgic naman ako bigla :) I'm from the School of Business and Managemnet! :) so yun, school pride. hahah|
|Na-curious kasi kami bigla sa malaking bag na nakadisplay kaya pinagtripan namin :)|
|Would you believe na may booth 'dun na nag.o-offer ng free hug? ano to? PBB TEENS? HUG MO KO! HUG MO KO! hahahaha.|
|eto, mga kasama ko sa Org. nag volunteer sila sa OrSem kaya ayan, haggard lang! :)|
The last night of the OrSem was OrSem night.. (malamang) so there was a talent expo at the gym. At dahil wala naman kaming magawa, nakisali narin kami!
|eto ang mga makukulit kong kaibigan! :)|
|grabeh tagala tong engineering! wagas na wagas yung red light. !!|
Those were the stuffs I and my friends did during the OrSem. Personally, I always look forwasrd to OrSems because as a freshman, its the first thing you do as a student in the university. Explore and Carefree lang ang feeling. Honestly, when you see their faces, parang lost lang pero happy. It also feels nice to welcome the freshies to the school and make their first days memorable.
Welcome freshmen! :)
