The University opened its Christmas Season, Dec. 5, 32019 with the lighting of the Christmas trees at the parks and the Universit lobby. The committee led by Fray Cristituto Palomar, OAR and co-chaired by Mr. Vince Adolfo and Mrs. Genie Pedrosa requested the members of the university community to light up the trees at the Founders’ Park, Paseo Rekoleto and the main university park.
