AUAI Get Together Christmas Party 2014

Ma. Trisha C. Cuenco
Honorary Member, AUAI

 

The Association of UMak Alumni Incorporated (AUAI) ended 2014 with a blast as they held their last activity for the year---a Christmas celebration on December 27, 2014, deliberately consisted of more than fifty alumni from various batches. As part of the party’s purpose, the attendees were asked to bring books as donation for the Umak Library. The officers of the association, headed by the President himself, Mr. Alexander Pahayahay had decided to rekindle the bond of the alumni by starting off with limited members, as this would exemplify the intimacy that the association aims to have in the near future. Hence, the party was considered an intimate event.

The Vice President of AUAI, Mr. Jose Ronilo Dacara headed the said event and gave a short background about the association. The former Director of AUAI, Cynthia Jose, gave a brief message and greetings before the actual party commence.

Like any other parties, AUAI's also had games, which was initiated by Mr. Alexander Pahayahay, but unlike others, the AUAI had "Getting to Know You" as the opening game. All the alumni attendees(from batches 1989-2014) were more than thrilled to partake in the given games, such as the commonly played "Paper Dance", "Pinaka", and"Bring Me", as everyone was eager to take home prizes and at the same time, enjoy the party. Though some were unprepared to sing and dance, they were still up for the games. No one was off the tune nor out the dance floor at the AUAI party, for everyone only wanted to enjoy the night with their fellow alumni.

The event was full of loud cries and endless applause. Even when dinner was served, everyone still applauded as Ms. Elai Amil, an honorary member of AUAI, serenaded the crowd. The cries and applause even got louder and the evening more exciting when it was time to pick winners for the raffle draws. At the end, no one other than Mr. Steven Villacorta from CEPDA would be elated to go home as she was the major winner of the night. When the night finally ended, everyone received souvenirs---planner and pen

THROWBACK THURSDAY AND FLASHBACK FRIDAY FEVER IN UMAK
CBA Wins 1st Place, THS is 2nd and CBDA is 3rd in 1st Alumni Throwback Exhibit

 

PAST PERFECT. Students flock to the exhibit area to check-out UMak life in yesteryears.

 

Throwback Thursday and Flashback Friday came to life as the Association of UMak Alumni, Inc. (AUAI) and the Center for Alumni Affairs (CAA) launched its 1st Alumni Throwback Exhibit on March 5, which was on display until March 6 at the UMak Bridgeway. Different colleges from then Makati Polytechnic Community College (MPCC) to the present University of Makati (UMak) competed for the best display of flashback mementos that captured the joyful spirit and camaraderie of students and alumni.

The College of Business Administration (CBA) took the 1st place as they displayed their evolution from a humble institute to a full-fledged college, exhibiting an impressive array of photos encompassing generations of alumni that was truly a trip down memory lane. The 2nd place went to the Technical High School (THS) which had a striking film strip concept display from the 70’s to the 90’s, while the Center for Broadcast and Digital Arts (CBDA) grabbed 3rd place as they complemented the old photos of students with an LED screen set-up to broadcast the work of the Animation students.

A special award was given to CBA for having the biggest size of photos on display. The winners of the exhibit were judged according to relevance to the theme, content of the exhibit, and creativity and design.
Among the attendees during the opening ceremony were former Pamantasan ng Makati (PnM) President Dr. Anita Bustillo and current UMak President Prof. Tomas Lopez, Jr. who were stunned to see old photographs of students, especially the alumni employees who have chosen to serve the university to this day.
 
 
Attending in full force during the opening were the AUAI officers headed by AUAI President Alexander Pahayahay, who is also a professor of the UMak College of Computer Science, together with the Center for Alumni Affairs Director Emerita Reyes, other prominent alumni and students.

THEN AND NOW. Former PnM President Bustillo (left) and current UMak President Lopez (right) are both absorbed in the old photographs display from the early MPCC days to modern-day UMak.

 

Antonio Garcia (MPCC Batch ’85), Ronilo Dacara (Makati College Batch ’93) and Josephine Rupert (MPCC Batch ’74) narrated their humble beginnings, tribulations and triumphs as alumni of the university. Each of them shared their impressions and insights as they watched the institution grow from a modest community college to a sprawling world class university. The successes of the alumni achievers from three different decades were inspirations worth sharing to the promising students, as these soon-to-be alumni complete their steps to a bright future.

A PLANNING AND TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITY TO REMEMBER

by Jose Ronilo C. Dacara

 

The officers of the Association of UMak Alumni, Inc. (AUAI), led by President Alexander Pahayahay and the Center for Alumni Affairs (CAA) Director Cynthia Jose, held its Planning and Team Building Seminar from October 23 and 24 at the scenic Caliraya Recreation Center in Lumban, Laguna.

 

 

 

The first day was purely business for the officers as they crafted their plans for the entire two years of their term with worthwhile projects such as tree planting, book donation, scholarship and the revision of the constitution, among others. The planning lasted for five hours with everybody feeling exhausted but happy and satisfied by the end of the night.

The planning lasted for five hours with everybody feeling exhausted but happy and satisfied by the end of the night.

 

The second day was allotted for the team building activity to foster camaraderie among the officers themselves. It turned out not only to be a day full of fun, but a day full of surprises, as well, because it tested the mental prowess and physical limits of the officers with different friendly games and extreme races offered by the host resort. Imagine Mr. Rommel Dorin conquering the great wall of Caliraya or Ms. Edwina Orejas paddling her way to the finish line on a kayak boat and you will have an idea of the strenuous physical challenges that all participants had to face.

 

In the end, the AUAI officers went home extremely tired, yet happy, satisfied, invigorated and ready to face the challenges ahead of them. Truly, it was a planning and team building activity to remember.
