He earned the topmost marks among the Class 2017 of the UP Visayas, School of Technology’s graduates in June this year. Five months after graduation, Jared Philip Condez topped the November 2017 Chemical Engineering Licensure exam with a score of 84.60%.
No one was more surprised of this result than Condez himself. He said in an interview with the UPViews (June 2017 Commencement Issue), that he just wanted to pass the exam.
“Padayon sa Paghiliugyon sa Malipayon nga Paskua.”
UP Visayas stood true to the theme of “padayon,” (continue) by going ahead with its celebration of Paskua 2017 despite the drizzle and threat of heavy rain. This did not dampen the enthusiasm of the community to proceed with its annual Lantern Parade in the afternoon of December 13, 2017, Miagao campus.
UP alumnus and artist Allan Cabalfin opened his exhibit etitled “Inner Gees” at Etnos Gallery, Angelicum School, Iloilo City on January 8, 2018.
The recent clay sculptures of Cabalfin are arrested in beguiling but fantastic molds. It features figures with closed eyes in quite contentment but in vexing strangeness that borders on the macabre. The dominant designs courageously defy normality because they appear as post-human graftages from the artist’s earthly delights.
Children from Brgy. Sapa, Miagao were the recipient of the 2017 gift-giving activity organized by the UP Visayas Library. The gift-giving which went with the theme “Give Love on Christmas Day” was held on December 19, 2017 at the Museum Lobby, Main Library, UPV Miagao campus.
The program started with a prayer led by Ma. Tita Noble. It was followed by the words of welcome from the University Librarian Ms. Analiza Linaugo. The children were then treated to a cartoon movie and a story-telling activity. They also played games, shared snacks and received their gifts courtesy of the library head and staff. Ms. Ninfa Bandorio was emcee during the activity.
