La Salle University-Ozamis held its University Days last September 10-13, 2013 which commenced with a thanksgiving mass held at the Arts Center with the university chaplain, Fr. Jesus Dosado as the celebrator.
To further highlight the celebration, we were graced by our very own resident mascot, Br. Buknoy!
The following day, September 11, 2013 was the most anticipated Cheerdance Competition! The gym was fully jam-packed with students, faculty, staff, guests, and visitors!
The competition started with the community singing of the De La Salle Alma Mater Song in different languages led by the cheerdancers. I had goose bumps upon hearing the song in different beat and in different tempo especially the instrumental version for the sign language of our mute and deaf brothers and sisters.
Afterwards, the eight contingents for the cheerdance compet took turns in cheering for their respective colleges.
The next day, September 12, 2013 was the day for the faculty and staff with fun games featuring the katutubong palaro of patentero, hayang-kulob, and labay-bola. I super enjoyed the games ‘coz I felt like a child again! It’s already been ages since I experienced letting loose of myself and laughing my heart out!
In the afternoon, we went all the way to Brgy. Gala for our community extension. There, we harvested corn and peeled corn for the benefit of agronomics. While doing our duty, we talked, laughed, and took pictures! It was just like having an acquaintance party/bonding moment with the other employees of La Salle which I am so thankful for the opportunity since I’m still a newbie in the university.
In the evening, Mr. and Ms. Lasallian Icon 2013 was held at the same venue, the Arts Center. It was a search for the most endearing male student and female student of LSU-Ozamis. Congratulations to the winners, John Laurence Sareñogon of CON and Christine May Gallego of CAS!
For the last day, all teachers were buckled up in their seats inside their respective offices since it was the deadline for the submission of midterm grades and semi-finals exam test questions. We just had a little break, enjoying our 200M cash prize for winning 1st runner-up for patentero.
Gladly, we were able to meet the deadline and celebrated again the following morning with LSU-Ozamis’ first ever team building! We woke up early in the morning for the dance-exercise and barrio games.
It was so much fun knowing more co-teachers and being friends with them! Truly, people come and go. I am just so happy to have had known new people who are smarter and better than me so I can improve and upgrade myself! Looking forward for the next LSU-Ozamis activity! Animo La Salle!
