Kapag ikaw ay na INC (incomplete) sa NSTP

UCCian, NSTP incomplete, Camrain Cloocan City, ipaglaban ang karapatan bilang estudyante,

Just this morning, before I had my 2-hour travel to my workplace in Ortigas we (the INC - incomplete in NSTP in our first year) met our university registrar to discuss matters & settle things out. We have to fix it as early as possible to avoid hassle on our 4th year. It might be a reason not to graduate so it's better to do it now although we still have a year.

We had taken all the tests & paid the necessary dues but to no avail. A big INC was written in our records in the registrar. Nakakainis talaga!! sobra. Pagkatapos naming mag-field trip, maglinis, mapakain ng mga bata, mag community service ito lang ang aabutin namin?? Shaks..badtriiiip talagah!! So we reenrolled the subject & looked for the said professor (clue: malaki ilong niya at baldi as in matigas na 'di' sa halip na 'balde') to settle things out. Panibagong gastos na naman.

Napagkasunduan na gawa na lang kami ng project sa halip na regularly umattend pa sa mga klase niya. Ang requirement?? wait baka mabigla ka...masyadong related sa subject eh...dalawang glass mirrors para sa table nila/niya. So we thought at first that we got the best bargain. Pero nung nag-check kami ng price ng glass...susmaryosep...2,000 pesos???? Eh walo lang kami so magkanu papatak yun??? gosh halos abot na sa binabayaran kong tuition fee!!!! so kinausap namin siya uli..wala. Absent daw.

Buti na lang napagalaman namin mula sa isang concerned professor na di pala ganun a ng sistema pag nireenroll mo ang NSTP. Kahit pala magawa namin ang project it will just be useless kasi di yun valid. Dadaan na pala dapat sa University registrar. Siya na pala dapat ang magsettle at di kung ano anong pa project ng ibang corrupt na prof.

So there.... nakahinga kami ng maluwag.... bibili na lang kami ng NSTP book, sasagutan ang mga worksheets dun at magpass ng fieldtrip pics namin to prove that we indeed joined the required field trip.

Buti naman naayos ng matiwasay at legal ang lahat!

Kaya sa mga UCCian jan na masasangkot sa gusot na inabot namin better be careful . Wag magpakatanga. Open your eyes & mind. Nag-aaral tayo para matuto. Kung ganyang magpapauto tayo anong silbi ng pinag-aralan natin??

Pangit na nga 'physically' ang school natin papapangitin pa ba natin pati intellectual image nito??

...I'd like to thank the 'concerned professor' who constantly opens our eyes and makes us realize what we can do!

UCC - University of Commission & Collection??

University of Caloocan City
University of Commission & Collection????
One of my professors mentioned that she had heard a complain in an am radio station DZMM I think (not really sure about the station's name) by a UCCian. "He/she" (the caller) called the UCC as such & I don't know if this news came to the administration.

CHED to HEI: Allow students with arrears to take exam

estudyante, Philippines, tution fees, CHED, CHED to HEI: Allow students with arrears to take exam, Schools ordered to allow students to take exams despite unpaid fees, University of Caloocan City, Camarin, Caloocan City

Na-experience mo na ba ang di pagtakin ng test kasi di ka pa bayad sa tuition mo?? pahirap no?? Well..ngayon hindi na dahil pwede ka na magmidterm o finals kahit di ka pa fully paid. Iyan ay ayon sa CHED memorandum.

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) issued Tuesday a memorandum ordering higher education institutions (HEIs) to allow students to take school examinations regardless of unpaid fees.

CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) 02 series of 2010 directed all colleges and universities to be flexible in the implementation of the “no permit, no exam” policy which was earlier criticized by various student groups.

“This is also in accordance with the pertinent provision of the 1987 Constitution and RA 7722 and for the purpose of ensuring the accessibility and affordability of quality higher education, and also in view of the unabated economic crisis brought about by circumstances worldwide as well as the recent calamities that the country has faced in the last year,” Angeles said in his order.

“In view of the ongoing premises, all concerned HEI’s are hereby requested to extend all possible assistance to students with outstanding balances in tuition and other fees due to financial difficulties. They shall extend utmost flexibility in the implementation of the no permit, no exam policy they are adopting, if any, and any such policies that prohibit students from taking their periodic or final exams due to unpaid school accounts,” Angeles added.

Ako bilang estudyante ay sumasangayon dito. Kasi naman mageexam lang di pwede?? Pwede ka naman nilang harangin kapag kukuha ka na ng requirements o kung anu man. Pag di nakapag-exam mas mapapgastos ang estudyante dahil may special exam fee at kung ano ano pang make up projects ang ibibigay ng prof. E di lalong naghirap si pobreng estudyante?? At last the government is doing something to uplift the situation of poor students.

Pero di lang kabutihan ang maidudulot nito. Ayon sa coolbuster blog na binabasa ko:

1. The directive itself is debatable. It says: "...all concerned HEIs are hereby requested to extend all possible assistance to students with outstanding balances in tuition and other fees due to financial difficulties." Note the highlighted word "requested" which means that it is not compulsory and that compliance by the HEI's might be discretionary. Dr. Emmanuel Angeles, CHEd chairman, was quoted as saying "we are urging all 1,781 HEIs to comply with the memo. Again, notice the word in bold letters. It should have been 'directing' or 'ordering' to give the memo sharper teeth. However, CHEd may be exercising its innate persuasive power which means that there's no violation but watch out if you don't follow.

2. It will possibly encourage laziness on the part of the parents. We don't generalize but there is a possibility that some of them will take their school obligation for granted because the memo allows the students to take the exams even if they have arrears.

3. The worst case scenario is that, it can possibly lead to the closure of some colleges (even universities) with not so good financial capabilities to sustain. What will happen to the salaries of their admins, non-teaching staff and the faculty if tuition fee payments are delayed? What about the schools' tax requirements, utility bills and other daily operating expenses?

Oo nga naman. May point kaya lang sana tayong mga estudyante at magulang ay wag mastadong umabuso. Para di naman malugi ang university.Mas lalo tayong mahihirapan pag nagka ganun. Ikaw?? ano sa tingin mo??

Monday, 25 January 2010 troupe concert..

Last Saturday Jan. 23, 2009 - the afternoon classes were suspended including ours. It's for the reason that everybody's been encouraged or 'required' to watch the UCC Dance Troupe's concert. The title was "A TRIBUTE" --- I don't know what happened over there coz I made sure to compensate for my lack of sleep at that time. It was held in Camarin HS covered court at 6 pm.

.just updates.

It's too bad I'm already late in the women's volleyball players' registration. I didn't know the schedule so no chance anymore to have fun in intrams. huhu T.T - I guess I'll be just cheering for my collegemates on February. I'll just be in the bleachers...

UCCian graces TV 5’s “Talentadong Pinoy”

This is the original article CJ and I wrote about MAPE. This was later edited & got piblished in The Crossroads

UCCian graces “Talentadong Pinoy”

An exceptionally talented AB Math UCCian just brought home the bacon from TV 5’s “Talentadong Pinoy”, a reality talent show with no limits, where truly entertaining can survive the panel of judges plus the ‘audience jury’.

This newly pride of UCC is no other than Reynaldo L. Mape Jr. ,a 20-year old AB Math student from Camarin & a resident of Bagong Silang Caloocan City.

His winning performance was done along with his 8-year old brother Reymil. He showcased his cunning maneuver of Rubik’s cube along with playing the yoyo. The judges & its host, Ryan Agoncillo was so amazed that they even asked for some lessons.

His winning is composed of 5o, 000 pesos & a chance to be exposed on some GMA shows namely; “Unang Hirit” & “Lovely Day”(not yet shown). He gave a humble “maybe” when asked if he would go for showbiz if ever offers would come.

He is such a restless achiever. He has mentioned in the lunch interview held last November 14 that he consistently endeavors novel & unusual talents. “ Dapat bawat araw may magagawa akong bago” he mentioned with his thrilled eyes longing to unveil some more talents & skills through his seemingly frail physique.

A true talented young man, he also knows how to play the piano which he learned at the age of six, and learned other musical instruments since then. Among these are the xylophone, guitar, violin and others. He became a virtuoso despite the fact that his right ear became deaf because of an ear infection. He had uncovered these skills & talents with only limited resources. He used to borrow instruments & try to figure it out by himself. According to this guy who was raised in far away suburbs of Cagayan, resources are just secondary factors in attaining success. It’s the determination to achieve something that matters. He is indeed a “talentadong pinoy”!

The show is not only his arena. He has also spread his wings on other competitions & proved to everybody especially to those who scorned him that adversity is not a hindrance to attain something. He has competed in international & local Rubik’s cube competition such as Rubik’s cube Philippine open 2008 wherein he ranked 2nd in 3x3x3 blindfold category & 6th in 3x3x3 multi blindfolded category amongst hundreds of other aspirants.

His most recently learned talents are playing astrojax (a string with 3 weights) and dice stacking. The truly remarkable thing is that he is practicing these talents with borrowed or improvised equipments.

On an interview, he said that he will use different talents each episode in order to maintain the judges’ interest. He is currently re-practicing his talents, quoting “Kung may talent ka, dapat maya-maya daanan mo rin kasi baka mamaya magtampo yun”.

Mape now aspires to be a defending champion 5 times in a row, a feat that will earn him the title of being the first champion to do this competition.

2010 Intramurals

...malapit na ang no. Im not talkin' about the valentines day. (bitterness ng single..heheh) ....malapit na ang INTRAMURALS!!!! yehey!!! excited na ako! sana weekend ganapin ang mga games para makasali ako,.....

sa volleyball women's ang College of Liberal Arts ay nagkaroon na ng try outs last Tuesday Jan. 19. I don't have any idea what happened...sana makahabol pa ako..kahit di naman talaga ako magaling...saling pusa lang. Gusto ko talaga maexperience ang team games & team spirit eh...

just like last year este last time pala.......ang INTRAMS kasi sa UCC ay di every year ginaganap. It's biennial--meaning once in 2 years..

nagflashback....nung first year ako sumali ako sa women's volleyball team..and I'm proud to say na champion kami. STRAIGHT WIN!! wala kami nun ni isang talo.

sa over-all naman 1st runner up lang ang WHITE team o Liberal Arts Team. Over all champion nun ang YELLOW team (ang buisiness majors) from VOCTECH!

I'm really lookin' forward to this season's event. Hope it's worth the wait.

so yung may mga kakayahan diyan at naniniwala sa kakayahan na yun join na kayo & be an asset to your College Department!

sa mga nag-aakalang bias to..senxa di ko lang talaga alam ang sa ibang college departments at majors. kaya kung sakaling nababasa mo to at tingin mo your course/major/college/department deserve to be known just msg me in my chat box, do mention your email/contact number. You can be a contributor here. You are so welcome!!

kung sakaling magkar0on ako ng oras I'll try to put here the winners & maybe some pics na rin!!

Psychology Seminar di natuloy

Sa Psychology department magkakaroon daw kami ng seminar for 3 days (uwian) worth 600 pesos kaso di natuloy. Buti naman. Ang mahal naman ng seminar na yan for 600 pesos?? poor lang kaya kami!!
Halos kasing mahal na ng tution ng scheme 1 diba???

Singing Contest in UCC

I heard somethin' around the campus and I wanna share it.

magkakar0on daw ng parang singing contest sa UCC. The prize will be 10,000 pesos. That's according to my professor. So let's reveal the singer in us & showcase our talents...
