The Upsilon Sigma Phi recently celebrated its 100th year attended by thousands of fellows from all over the world. The gains from the past year include an issuance of President Rodrigo Duterte of Presidential Proclamation No. 539 naming 2018 as “Year for the Celebration of the Centennial Anniversary of Upsilon Sigma Phi”. The Fraternity has likewise obtained recognition from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) as the oldest Greek-letter society in the Philippines.
The challenge for the incoming Board is to build on the gains of past generations and ensure that the fellowship remains true to its objective of leaving a significant and positive impact on the nation, the University of the Philippines, and the fellows.
The 17th Congress was held at the University of the Philippines Bonifacio Global City last February 16, 2019.
