UST Guidance and Counseling Department celebrated it foundation week through seminars and workshops with inspirational speakers last Sept. 5 to 8.

With the theme “Of hearts and minds: Promoting a Culture of Understanding in the School Setting,” the activities help in facilitating the understanding of self, others and community in general.

Now on its second year, the Guidance week is in line with United Nation’s International Year of the Youth’s theme which is on dialogue and communication.

On the first day of the celebration, a T-Party was held to empower the student leaders and peer facilitators. The said party was attended by the people involved in the T-cell program, a tied-up project with the Core Group Foundation, where UST was chosen as one of the schools to spearhead the building of culture of dialogue and non-adversarial communication.

The week-long celebration was also geared toward the personal growth of students.

Concurrent or parallel sessions ran in different colleges and were concluded with a Counselors’ Day and a Eucharistic celebration by the Central Seminary Rector, Rev. Fr. Gerard Timoner III, O.P. BERNADETTE D. NICOLAS
