I also attended the final rites and induction of applicants into my two organizations in Mass Comm.
The UP MCO final rites was held at some private rented house in Fairview. I only caught up in the afternoon, so I wasn’t able to witness the things that happened pre-induction. Hehe.
The UP CAST final rites, on the other hand, was held at the usual place at Lagro. This is the fourth time we held it there, in the last two and half years.
Honestly, I personally have reservations regarding how we conduct applicants’ final rites. Conducted improperly, all we do is imbibe a sense of sama ng loob and probably a false sense of trust and blind obedience among applicants.
