by Echo Wu, MAEd A&S Student | August 9, 2019
“I felt more prepared to be an AUPian!” Riza* one of the attendees of the orientation seminar for AUP Chinese students, quipped. “The seminar helped me understand what I should do and how I should react”, she added.
The orientation seminar themed: Making AUP Life A Breeze was held on July 15, 2019 at COE Rooms 1 and 2. This initiative was spearheaded by the Chinese-speaking graduate education students: Wang Huiyu, Wu Hui Lien, and Zhou Yina, under the course Educational Fieldwork with Dr. Jeremiah Fameronag, who also chairs the COE secondary education department.
During the seminar, the Chinese community learned the different processes and procedures to be observed while studying in the university. Other topics like the session Filipino Culture 101 opened their eyes on various Filipino ways which hoped to prevent misunderstanding and cultural conflicts.
Dr. Salvador Molina, the newly appointed Vice President for Student Services was also present in the said event, encouraging all Chinese students to keep their eyes on the goal – serve the Master Teacher.
“It was really a great opportunity to serve the Chinese community!” Wang Huiyu, one of the organizers, commented. “Hoping that we can do more programs like this!”
