In line with the 6th Charter Day Celebration of the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP), the USTP Cagayan de Oro campus hosted the USTP Student Leaders’ Summit 2022 on August 19, 2022, at the Dr. Ricardo E. Rotoras (DRER) Memorial Hall. Different student leaders from the various campuses of the University System attended the activity.
Nine groups of students from USTP Panaon, USTP Jasaan, USTP Balubal, USTP Villanueva, USTP Cagayan de Oro, USTP Oroquieta, and USTP Claveria took part in the whole day activity.
In the morning, they played games that were challenging and enjoyable, allowing them to naturally form a bond amongst themselves by working as a team to achieve the goal.
Later in the afternoon, the student leaders showcased their incredible talents at the USTP Talents segment of their gathering, which was organized in collaboration with the USTP Arts and Culture Division. Every group also prepared chants to motivate each other.
In the end, the group of student leaders from USTP Claveria was announced as CHAMPIONS for their chant and dance performance.
The USTP Student Leaders’ Summit 2022 did not only provide an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their leadership abilities but also inspired the value of unity, of working together for a common goal. It demonstrated that, even if we come from different backgrounds, we are one as Trailblazers!
