P-Pop groups will entertain freshmen during the Thomasian Welcome Party, an in-person concert that is part of the University’s onboarding activities on Aug. 5.

The concert, which will have the theme “Dream Beyond Seeing,” will take place at the Quadricentennial Pavilion (QPav) and will feature performances by BGYO and BINI.

The welcome party, which was initially planned for Aug. 3 but was postponed due to bad weather, “aims to revive the joyful culture of Thomasians,” the event’s executive producer, Paolo Alejandrino said.

“We wanted to make this event a warm welcome to the traditions of UST and also inspire them to dream big outside of the four walls of the campus,” he told the Varsitarian.

Also set to perform are Accountancy student JC Herrero and Anton Stefano of the Faculty of Arts and Letters. 

The Thomasian Welcome Party was last held in 2019.

Based on the guidelines set by UST Tiger TV, the QPav gates will open at 6:30 p.m., following the afternoon batch of freshman students who will enter the Arch of the Centuries for their Welcome Walk.

The Thomasian Welcome Party is expected to take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

According to the event guidelines, only freshmen will have access to the concert.

There will be four entrance points situated at each corner of the QPav. Attendees may line up at the UST Practice Gym as early as 1 p.m.

Students who want to attend the concert must obtain a virtual ticket through their UST email accounts by using the ticketing platform Eventbrite.

Freshman students may also receive tickets through their local student council officials, to be done on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students who were unable to secure virtual tickets may still be allowed entry, depending on seat availability.

To gain access to the QPav, attendees are required to present either virtual or printed copies of their event tickets, along with their University ID and a printed copy of their registration form at the gates.

The Thomasian Welcome Party will be streamed live on UST Tiger TV’s Facebook page. Ernest Martin Tuazon
