AFTER a decade-long hiatus, the College of Nursing reclaimed its championship title in the recently revived inter-collegiate Theology quiz bee at the Medicine Auditorium last Feb. 3.

Besting 12 other colleges in “Teomasino 2012,” the Nursing team got a total of 32 points in the elimination round and 93.33 percent for the extemporaneous speech in the championship round. The College of Tourism and Hospitality Management (19 points, eliminations; 92 percent, speech) and College of Science (25 points, eliminations; 91.33, speech) placed second and third, respectively.

Institute of Religion secretary Allan Basas said the extemporaneous speech competition was included in the final round to measure the students’ knowledge in Catholic doctrines.

The Theology quiz bee covered all Theology subjects from Salvation History to Marriage and Family. The contest was last held in 2002.

The winning team included juniors Mari Begonia Cinco, Deevon Cariaga, Florence Bernice Natino, and Katrina Sarah Mae Paulino, and sophomore Melvin Prudente Jr.

Basas said the Theology quiz bee was revived to “highlight the value of Theology in the University.” Bernadette D. Nicolas
