Distant Circles

Every day, opportunities surround us. There are so many of them out there that all we have to do is reach out and grab them, not hungrily, not greedily, but excitedly, ambitiously. We see ourselves in a small circle where we think we can’t step out of, where we think we can’t move out of. We stay and live there, and that is what we continuously call life as we go on with viewing the world in black and white. Yet the distance among different countries has become amazingly short with the use of airplanes and technology. The opportunities have become endless, and the destinations have become abundant, exotic even. Different lands with different cultures have shown us just how different each of us are, and these make us think about the destinations which have made us shudder with exhilaration and ecstasy. These various lands can act as places wherein we can build up on our experience by meeting people who are different than us, yet akin to us in so many ways. The distance has become shorter and shorter, and the new people we meet every day pile up, creating memories similar to that of Mr. Frederickson and his wife’s scrapbook from the Disney movie “Up.” It would be full of photographs and letters that will fill us with memories that act as though they’ve been placed carefully in a trunk that has accumulated dust after having not been thought of for so long. But when we remember them, it takes us back to those places as though we were still there, as though we were still living them, and the dust that was once on it is wiped clean with the slate of a memory, and falls like leaves in autumn to the ground.

Such is the case of Hayley Smith.

Taking the Leap Against Rubella: One Shot Can Change a Life

January 23, 2016 – Preventing Rubella is not as hard as you think it is, and the Speech-Language Pathology Society is spreading why.

The Department of SLP held its latest installment in spreading awareness against Rubella last January 23, 2016 at the Education Auditorum in the Albertus Magnus Building. The SLP students and students from other courses of the College of Rehabilitation Sciences took their chance in absorbing the information.

Aga Salvador was the host of the event, calling on Rosemary Miclat, the auditor of the SLP Society, to open the program with a meaningful prayer. Ma. Georgina D. Mojica, MHPEd, CSP-PASP, the Department Chair of SLP, took to the stage to officially start the program. “There are consequences of Rubella that may be preventable,” she said during the opening remarks.

Feeling Spellbound

​The organizations of the College of Rehabilitation Sciences had their own Diagon Alley last October 28, 2015, the One Day Fair; but instead of purchasing enchanted ornaments and oddities from Ollivander’s and Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, we got wet and covered with colored powder with our friends and significant others.

The One Day Fair was a time for all of us to enjoy and acknowledge each other’s talents and skills. May these talents be either having a mean throw at water balloon fights or showing off your strength at tug-of-war, we can all agree that CRS isn’t all books and lectures. Thanks to this fair, we were truly able to really enjoy ourselves after a hard day’s work.
