The Thomasian Global Trade Expo was a success in celebration of University of Santo Tomas’s Quadricentennial Celebration. Over 400 booths of companies and respective colleges showed support and participated in this event. Thomasian students and alumni and even non-Thomasians gathered together in the biggest expo event happened at SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City from October 15-17.
On the first day, the theme was food and beverages which sponsored by College of Tourism and Hospitality Management. It includes cooking demonstration and food lectures. UST also launched the Swatch Watch on that same date.
Business and information technology was the theme on the second day which sponsored by College of Commerce and Business Administration. Series of seminars attended by different commerce students as part of their requirement in making a reaction paper to be submitted on the first day of 2nd semester. I attended the seminar entitled “Empowering Consumers of the 21st Century” and the Joel Cruz Signatures Business Talk. I took down important notes and got a copy of guide questions to be answered with documentation as a proof that I attended the seminar.
Third day belongs to health, beauty and wellness which sponsored by College of Nursing and College of Medicine and Surgery. I attended the student leaders general assembly with theme “A Healthy Lifestyle: A Leader’s Priority” with other officers from central and local student councils and class officers.
This three-day event was organized by UST Alumni Association. I had fun and learned a lot in attending this event. I am proud that I am a Thomasian by heart now and forever. And, of course, I belong to the Quadricentennial Batch of the Pontifical and Royal University in the Philippines, indeed Asia’s oldest and biggest Catholic University.
