The University of the Philippines, on 8 January 2008, opened festivities marking its centennial. The day started with a huge motorcade from UP Manila in Padre Faura where the university was first established in 1908. The Manila convoy was joined by other motorcades originating from UP Baguio, UP Pampanga and UP Los Baos and converged with the UP Diliman contingent, entering the Diliman campus in a grand parade. UP Alumni Association President Ponciano E. Rivera Jr. ’61 was among those who welcomed the delegations at Quezon Hall.
The Upsilon Sigma Phi joined the parade as part of the UP Diliman contingent, the only frat that marched to the Oblation. Being the oldest Greek-letter fraternity in the country and in Asia, we made sure to be part of this historic event!
