LaSalTech Polls and Acquaintance Party


This year promised to be even more challenging even from day one. This was mainly because last year seem to have the best Acquaintance Party, craziest SAO officers, and the wildest day-to-day interactions yet. To outdo those accomplishments, to be able to surpass that level of fun, the students had to reinvent themselves to be better in doing what they do best as individuals.

New school year means new SAO officers. And by the end of the first month of classes, the campaign began. We introduce you to the Brave and the Wise. Two parties with slightly different goals but ultimately wanted to make some changes not only to the extra-curricular activities but even to academics as well. One prominent campaign stunt was to build an IT club. This would be specialized in helping freshmen learn programming from second-year mentors. Pretty sweet.

Presidential Candidate of the Wise Party, Jarel Alfonso.

Automated elections as usual now with collaborated efforts from GlenoiD, ArchTech, VhanJhan, and DeltoiD. To have more efficiency and accuracy in bringing out the results of the elections, Version 3 of the LST Electronic Voting System was used.

The new election software also allows testing of the new i5 units in laboratory 1.

As anticipated as the elections of the new school student leaders is the promised super-duper-out-of-the-ordinary Acquaintance Party. This is not so big deal of an event, the school decided to spend a week for this celebration. A week before this said one-week off is the Signature Haunting (or Hunting, if you prefer). Where first years are like bullied (not exactly) as a welcome gesture from the school’s unforgiving faculty, staff and second year. This is not as harsh as it sounds. Really.

That’s My Classmate was a creepy name when you’ll know that it’s a pageant for gorgeous women who can melt you just by the way they stare you down. On the last day of the week, they would be the center of attraction. No question about that.

When the Acquaintance Week starts, comes the Eenie Meenie Sportsfest. Day 1 is Basketball. Day 2, Volleyball, Day 3 is Badminton Day. Here are some of the photos taken on these days.

Acquaintance Day is really the day everyone was really freakin’ out for. By this time, students would have exhausted all their energy practicing for the Power Dance, playing games but using their extra energy to give it all out for this one day event.

New Uniforms

Today, August 7, the admin released the first batch of new uniforms to all staff and faculty. Contrary to the soft, feminine inspired concept from last year, this one is quite a good reboot. With a new approach that aims to functionality and ease of movement, a new experience is surely to be awaited.

Back for 2014!

Goodbye, summer.

Goodbye, summer.

Have you ever had that desire to go on a vacation for two weeks just to shrug the stress away?

How about a 10-week vacation? Sounds even better, right? For me, I think mine was too comfortable and relaxing that going back to work is really another journey back to your very first day at the office. You are back to normal routine from the vacation that spoiled you without alarm clocks to wake you up and deadlines to fulfil.

But the thing is, muscle memory and old habits die so hard that a day on your own desk sends back all that is lost. And you are ready again to be the hero you always have the rest of the year.

The school started yesterday, June 16, 2014, which is also the day the Spurs won the championship and the day I turned 24 (yes, I just posted my own age online). It will be another great year for the freshmen and the second year people. I’m sure their 10-week vacation was no different than mine, so it’s better to warm their fresh-from-hibernation selves up for the next 5 months that would mostly involve me and the computer.

Welcome to Academic Year 2014.
