Latest Update in the University

Less is more

It's noisy.

Loud cheers filled the HRDC Gymnasium. It's like there's a concert of a famous rock band inside. Normalistas could be seen laughing and smiling, just feeling what's in the moment.

The 93rd foundation days served more like a stress debriefing. It simply made the students happy for a while. It's a good thing that the university still made the celebration possible despite the struggles that the students are still facing.

Simple. It's the only word that describes the celebration. No mark of extravagance could be seen like bright fireworks, attractive costumes and breath-taking production numbers. That is because, again, of the present situation and the university's plan for the event was based on that fact.

"Maybe it takes a super
typhoon to shake up

Simple, yes, but the feedback of the students says otherwise. They seem happier than that of the previous celebrations. It's a good thing that the university made it simple, because it's more like "for the students" this time, setting aside the glam which the university is known for. This should have been realized last time.

Glam adds to the blast but it doesn't last, all that the students will remember is the fireworks and how it had brightened the sky; rather than the new friendship and fun they had. Maybe it takes a super typhoon to shake up everybody and to make everybody realize the beauty of simplicity and that it's not just all about the fireworks. Less is more.
