UPCAT, the movie

October 23, 2008 By: whatsuplb Category: UPLB

I came across this trailer of UPCAT, the movie about high school students wanting to take the UPCAT. There are some UPLB scenes shown. Brings back memories of my turn to take the exam. Nag-UP or nothing din ba kayo? I remember baking brownies the day before the exam as my baon! Kayo, how did you prepare for the UPCAT?

Thea, a UPLB devcom grad, shares her thoughts. What’s yours?

Join the UPLB Gawad Kalinga Bayani Challenge

September 03, 2008 By: whatsuplb Category: UPLB

The second Gawad Kalinga Bayani Challenge sponsored by the UPGK-LB will be on September 6, 7, 13, and 14, 2007 at Brgy. Putho, Los Baños, Laguna. This activity is in cooperation with GK LB Ville caretaker team headed by Dr. Rey Dela Cruz. The challenge is open to all organizations in and out of the University, as well as faculty members, alumni and different sectors. A team should be composed of 10 members and is assigned to build one house for the dates specified.

Even though UPGK-LB has member volunteers every weekend, there is still a need for a “surge” of participants and the Bayani challenge is a great way to cater to that need. The activity also gave the participants a chance to hear the three talks ( Bayan, Bayani, Bayanihan) which, in completion, will count them as a GK Isang Milyong Bayani (GK1MB).

So how about spending two meaningful weekends building a house? This would be a great way to hold mini-reunions, don’t you think?

For more information or pictures on the Bayani Challenge, check out these websites, http://www.upgklb.org and http://www.uplbgk.multiply.com.
