Department of History and Social Studies of College of Liberal Arts led the university’s commemoration of the National Heroes’ Day through a heroes’ parade within the campus last August 30, 2016.

Students enrolled in History and Social Studies dressed as heroes, ancestors and prominent figures in Philippine history to honor those who have given much to the cause of freedom, justice, culture and our heritage. The activity is also part of the department’s “History Week” celebration.

“It is important to acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of our heroes,” said Prof. Ryan Biong, Head of Social Studies Department. The activity, which was first held last school year, was organized to set an example in reliving the greatness of our heroes who struggled and sacrificed their lives to free our country from oppression.
Also part of the activity is the food exhibit participated by the students held at the CLA mini stage last Aug. 31. The exhibit displayed different cuisines and traditional foods from different countries in South Asia like the ramen and okonomiyaki of Japan, tamriyya of Kuwait, tom yum soup of Thailand, Nasi Lemak of Malaysia, Bank Khoai Mi of Vietnam, Majaraja Curry of India.

The students said they are happy and proud to have a hands-on experience in cooking and preparing these foreign delicacies. Last year, the students prepared cuisines from different parts of the country. (Liezel M. Parreño, PAO)
