With the theme “Knowledge is a Treasure, Practice is the Key”, the BS Information Technology students celebrated BSIT Days last January 26-28, 2011. Allen Troy Gatchalian, president of the Junior Philippine Computer Society (JPCS) – SISC Chapter led the opening ceremonies.
Highlighting the event were competitions in speed typing, photo editing and programming. BSIT students from all year levels actively participated and showcased their skills. Mr. Danilo Chua and Mr. Ryan Hope Racelis, BSIT instructors, conducted lectures about the latest trends in database management system and programming, respectively.
There were also several movies viewed during the event to make the students appreciate the importance and effects of technology, one of which is “The Social Network”, a chronicle of the founding of Facebook, the phenomenal social networking website.
The celebration will conclude with an educational trip to the Philippine Long Distance Company’s Innolab in Mandaluyong City scheduled on February 22, 2011.
