Maligayang bati sa bawat isang nagtapos sa Class of 2018! 
Salamat po, Dean at mga kapwa faculty, sa paanyayang ito.  
At salamat po sa inyong pagdalo, mga mahal sa buhay. 
Salamat din po sa pagpapakilala sa akin at aking pamilya.  

Dear Graduate, happy are you for a number of good reasons. Your family members are excited about your degree, such as: BS Civil Engineering, wow, the best! LOL. Or your loved ones are very glad that you graduated from UP, not the other school! LOL. Or they are very happy that you graduated, finally, period!


Sa aming naunang henerasyon ng UP engineering graduates, mas maraming summa: sumasabit; mayroon ding magna: magna-nine years; walang cum: kumokopya… LOL. 
Now you already conquered the terror that was.
Please own this achievement, Dear Graduate. 

And at this time, feel free to get up on your feet and applaud your guardians and loved ones… 
This is one of the many ways that you may thank them, for motivating you to come this far.   (more…)

Leon and to our honored guest, Dr. Benito Pacheco, good afternoon! To the graduating class
of 2018, congratulations and a job well done to everyone! It has been one hell of a journey,

past days as a reward for the diligence everyone has exhibited in the past years. You deserve

The past days have been very interesting for me. Days before graduation, just after my
weighted average grade was announced – I was flooded with the following questions from my
friends, family members, acquaintances, and even strangers – ‘di ka na po ba natutulog
kaaaral’, ‘isa kang idolo – how to be you po’, ‘ang galing mo siguro mag-manage ng time
and stress, ang sabi sa akin’. From there, I instantly understood that the image of a perfect,
flawless student was being projected on me. “Sa utak-utak ko, iniisip ko – ganoon ba akong
klaseng mag-aaral? Ngunit kilala ko naman sarili ko at alam kong hindi talaga ako ang
estudyanteng nasa isip nila.’ (more…)
