UST Senior High School Week

Last February 14-18, 2017, University of Santo Tomas held its very first UST Senior High School Week…and it was pretty exciting for an event happening for the first time.

Before:

Senior High School students of University of Santo Tomas has been anticipating Senior High School Week ever since it was announced that we’re going to have one. This event got me curious (and I’m sure I’m not just the only one), I have no idea how SHS week will go. I’m thrilled for the parade and booths but they were all cancelled a week before the event. That got me bummed because I think those two will be the life of the whole week.

Faculty members and students were cramming and stressing (the fck out) a week before SHS week. Exhibits weren’t ready, the production team has only two or three days to practice their performances, and some students are sent to different places to buy materials for our strand exhibits.

The SHS Week opening was my favorite part of the week. It started with a Eucharistic Celebration at the Quadricentennial Pavilion followed by the most blood pumping, adrenaline part of the opening, the UST Drumline and the performances of each strand.

Each strand has their own color to be identified:

  • STEM- Black
  • ABM- Green
  • HUMSS- Blue
  • HA- Red
  • MAD- Orange
  • PES- Pink

August 1- Orientation
August 3- University Wide Orientation (Freshmen Roarientation)
August 4- Orientation
August 5- Thomasian Welcome Walk

It’s a good thing we had no classes last Tuesday for it was Misa de Apertura,  a mass attended by the University’s faculty and administrators to give thanks and guidance to Lord Our Father for the upcoming school year.

The highlight of my week was definitely the ROARientation and of course, the Thomasian Welcome Walk.
