“The Role of the Academe in the ASEAN Economic Integration 2015” is the theme of the 66th Annual College Festival & Foundation Day celebration of the Northwestern Visayan Colleges (NVC) scheduled on February 28 – March 1, 2014.
It is not only in the customs, culture and tradition among Pilipinos especially Aklanons, but it is embedded in their way of life to celebrate important events like birthday, wedding and foundation day. It is a tradition as well in the NVC to celebrate its annual festival and foundation day.
This year’s celebration is anchored on the theme which appears simple but it underwent a composition process until it was finally agreed. The theme is crafted to send messages of love, care and preservation of our biosphere through education, culture and arts. Moreover, the theme also conveys a message of international cooperation in the field of education, and the national and regional economy.
All the activities during the festival are geared toward education and economic related activities such as: Amazing Race in Math, Teaching Demo Festival for Education, Book Talk Contest, Inter Section Skills Olympic for HRM, Forum on K to 12 for High School, Performance Information Edition, Cultural Shows Presentation, Blood Letting, and Coronation of Ms. NVC Sweetheart and King of Hearts 2014.
The foundation day celebration also serves as the application of knowledge learned as the students formulate the program, activities, and implement it with merely minimum guidance and supervision from NVC faculty, parents and administration. This is “NVCians in the lead”.
Indeed, the 66th Annual College Festival & Foundation Day will serve to truly reveal the “State of the College” to the NVC Board of Directors, Administration, Faculty and the students. This will give more strength, resources, and resolutions for the NVC to further assist the nation, Aklan in particular, in the production of high quality manpower resources to develop a more peaceful, progressive and desirable place to live, AKLAN! Hence, NVC is determined to perform its role in the successful ASEAN Economic Integration 2015.
