Mapúa University’s Council of Organizations (COO) held the Orgs’ Night of Excellence 2019 entitled OHANA: Occasion of Honor, Acknowledgement and Never-ending Appreciation. They commemorated the accomplishments of the organizations last October 4 at the gymnasium.

Office of Student Affairs director Prof. Dante Sauquillo opened the ceremony as he talked about the essence of being part of an organization. “After some time, we learned to love the organization [we’re in]. In the end, it is the organization that keeps us together,” Sauquillo recounted. He also mentioned that part of a student’s enjoyment in the University is the organization and the orgmates they build bonds with.
