If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in my almost-two year stay in the University of Santo Tomas, it is that its students seem to have a major fascination with beauty pageants. All colleges seem to hold one, the winners of which send their contestants to the university-wide pageant. Well, all colleges except for Civil Law–until this year. It’s amusingly crazy. Some college departments even have their own. Last December 13, the first “Mr. and Ms. Civil Law” pageant was held, with a handful of contestants from the different blocks in law school.
