The 2016 University of the Philippines (UP) General Alumni Homecoming promises to be an affair filled with delightful entertainment and wistful memories.
Graduates of UP, especially the Jubilarians — Diamond (Class of 1956), Golden (Class of 1966), Ruby (Class of 1976), and Silver (Class of 1991) — will converge at 3 p.m. on June 25, 2016 at Ang Bahay ng Alumni, UP Diliman campus, Quezon City, for the milestone event.
The reunion is held yearly under the auspices of the UP Alumni Association (UPAA).
In line with tradition, the Homecoming will likewise honor the UPAA Distinguished Alumni Awardees, UP graduates who have made outstanding achievements in their careers while serving their communities and society in general.
Heading the list are Dr. David Consunji and Amina Rasul-Bernardo.
The Jubilarian classes will go onstage with their respective cultural presentations for the entertainment of the homecoming participants — to demonstrate that they, especially the more elderly alumni, still have “what it takes.”
Other entertainers will be in the person of highly talented UP alumni, topbilled by Gerphil Flores, 2013 “Asia’s Got Talent” first runner-up, and the UP Street Dance, UAAP Street Dance Competition Season 78 champions.
