August 14, 2008. The University Student Council (USC) held its first alternative class (ACLE) program for the year dubbed, Juan vs. 100: “Si Juan dela Cruz at ang hamon ng panibagong siglo ng Unibersidad.”
More than a hundred student organizations participated, came up and staged their own alternative classes for the afternoon. The program was spearheaded by the Education & Research Committee of the USC. We also released the second issue of the student council’s newsletter that day, which my committee, the USC’s public information office, comes up with. Unlike the last time I distributed the newsletter, I finished distributing the copies of the second issue to almost all the buildings in campus in under two hours thanks to Bang’s help. I still wonder how the Philippine Collegian does it every week, the efficient distribution of the university’s official student paper.
