With the theme, “Isandaang Taon at Isang Dekada ng Pagkakaisa," Centro Escolar University (CEU) made a mark in its sports fest history by taking over the historic Big Dome and celebrating its annual sports fest at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The students, administrators, faculty members, and student athletes gathered to witness not just any event, but also to celebrate the school's 110th founding anniversary, making this year's sports fest even more special and unforgettable.
With all the exciting activities such as the search for Mr. and Ms. Sports Fest, the dance competition among students from different CEU branches, as well as song numbers, the Escolarian crowd was left cheering with pride as they supported their respective branches and teams.
It also comes as no surprise how this year's sports fest boosted school spirit among Escolarians. "It feels great to witness different groups of people from different kinds of organizations gather to perform and be united as Escolarians," Redz Salcedo, an 18-year old Psychology student, says.
The event was also a fun way to welcome CEU's new students as they begin their new school with a bang.
"As a new student in CEU's Senior High School program, it was really fun to experience this kind of event from our school because it opened me up to a lot of things such as the different kinds of clubs and the different branches of CEU—seeing all of them all gathered together was a really unforgettable experience for me," Shrael Sanchez, a 17-year-old Escolarian, shares.
"This event gave me a warm feeling of being an Escolarian. For senior high school students like me, it felt like we were really a part of the university and not just the 'senior high school.' It's very fulfilling that CEU decided to include us in a university-wide event just like this," an Escolarian senior high school student shares.
Indeed, it was a joyous and unforgettable celebration that uplifted every Escolarian's spirit as they gathered as one and commemorated their beloved university's 110 years of existence.
