Conductors of the next generation

Four up and coming UST-bred conductors, together with their chorale groups, performed classical pieces, as well as contemporary adaptations in Conductors on the Rise last March 10 at the UST Museum of Arts and Sciences.

Conductors Paolo Roel Rodriguez, Emerson Hernandez, Lester Delgado, and Ronaldo Raz took center stage in the event organized by the UST Conservatory of Music and the USTCM Conducting Department, in cooperation with the UST Singers.

Celebrating great Filipino women

IN TIME for the United Nation’s International Women’s Day last March 4, a young, ambitious photographer celebrated and honored Filipino women who have made milestones through an exhibit at the Bulwagang Juan Luna at the Cultural Center of the Philippines from Jan. 26 to Mar. 11.

Isa Lorenzo’s photo exhibit, Filipinas, presented 30 women, including former President and honorary Thomasian Corazon Aquino, actress Gloria Romero, and alumna Eugenia Duran-Apostol, founder of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

A tale of love and animosity

IT IS a tale that has touched the hearts of countless romantics, a conflict-riddled plot revolving around a handsome aristocrat and a country lass in one of the greatest love stories of all time. First published in 1813, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is a witty satire of pre-Victorian courtship and marriage practices. The novel has already been adapted into three mini-series, two TV movies, and four films—the latest of which is directed by Joe Wright under Working Title Films.

Muntikang pagbigti sa Main Building

Alam ba ninyong minsan nang may nagtangkang tumalon mula sa itaas ng Main Bldg? Salamat na lamang sa kabayanihan ng Tomasinong si Ernesto Isidoro at napigilan ang malagim na trahedya.

Umaga ng Marso 25, 1972 nang bulabugin ang Unibersidad sa sumubok pagpapatiwakal ng isang ginang mula sa ikaapat na palapag ng Main Bldg. Hindi namalayan ng mga security guard ang pag-akyat ni Imelda Marquez, 29, secretarial graduate ng UST, sa tapat ng rebulto ni San Agustin na nasa ikaapat na palapag.

Pagyapak sa tunay na mundo

NAGWAKAS na naman ang isang taon para sa mga mag-aaral ngunit para sa mga magsisipagtapos, simula pa lamang ito ng panibagong pakikipagsapalaran. Ngayong itatabi na nila ang kanilang mga aklat at uniporme sa eskwela, ihahanda naman nila ang kanilang mga sarili para sa buhay sa labas ng pamantasan.

Paalam, UST

Ilang araw na lang ang natitira at mamamaalam na sa Unibersidad ang mga seniors sa kolehiyo. Kasabay nito, sasabak na sila sa paghahanap ng trabaho.

Memorable memories in UST

While most students would wish that school was over, graduation candidates can’t help but reminisce about their days in the University.

What will you miss most in UST?

“Mga classmate and professor ko kasi everyday kaming nag-aaral at bumabagsak kaya lahat ng emotions nadaanan namin nang sabay-sabay sa loob ng apat na taon.”
- Jan Raymond Dacumos, 4C Pharmacy

“The hectic Nursing life and the Salinggawi Dance Troupe.”
- Kristine Casaisar, College of Nursing

A young mother’s sacrifice

WHILE many students worry over their insensitive boyfriends or not having enough allowance to spend in the mall, graduating Literature student Cherifer Mendoza-Santos is more worried about her three-year-old daughter Chloe’s education, food and milk, and the electric and water bills.

On films and adulthood

A FRIEND once told me that watching films more often is a sign of growing older, since it is the cheapest, easiest, and most convenient form of entertainment available to adults.

Overworked, unemployed

UNEMPLOYMENT and underemployment still remain perennial problems in the country today. In the recently adopted International Labor Organization definition, the unemployed include people 15 years old and above reported to be without work, currently available for work, and/or still looking for work, while underemployment means being “inadequately employed or having a low-paying job that requires less skill or training than one possesses.”

Waste management and nostalgia

I looked at my room. Then I remembered that I hadn’t even disposed of the trash inside my computer’s recycle bin. It was an apt analogy.

While tinkering with my PC that night, I noticed that my computer files—both used and useless—were piling up. My computer has slowed down more than just a bit, as if deteriorating due to old age. And I swore I heard a wallowing grunt from the CPU (it was just the creaking internal CPU fan, though).
