Mendoza (2nd year, BS Agribusiness Economics) was awarded "Most Outstanding Swimmer" in the "18-year-old and above-Male" category.    

The 6-person UP Mindanao team earned 14 gold medals, 6 silver medals, and 5 bronze medals gained throughout 17 individual and 2 team events to finish 7th overall in a field of 55 schools. The UP team was composed of Mendoza, Bhazel Acac (BS Food Tech.), Angelica Jem Verga (BS Architecture), Paula Yap (BS Computer Sci.), Joemer Aliman (BS Applied Math.), and newcomer Tobias Suico (BSAM).

Coach Albert Ramos reported that his team's proudest accomplishment was in the 4x50-meter relay where they won an upset victory over the event's defending champion, the Davao Merchant Marine Academy, in what he described as a "David-and-Goliath" triumph.

A total of 220 swimmers competed in the two-day event, representing schools from Davao and Mindanao regions, Metro Manila, and individual swimmers from overseas.

The event served as a selection process for the Batang Pinoy events for swimmers in the 8-15 year-old age group, and also for the Philippine National Games for swimmers in the 18-year-old-and-up category. See the photos here: https://www.facebook.com/UPMindanao/posts/1474392455966684

Written by Rene Estremera on . Posted in Madayaw News

An Information Technology Rights and Responsibilities Orientation was held on 9 March 2017 in Lorenzo Hall.  Major university offices such as the Office of the Chancellor, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Office of Research, and the Cash Office, plus the University Student Council and the CHSS Student Council were represented.  The speakers were Asst. Prof. Miguel Guillermo and Lecturer Kim Gargar from the Dept. of Math., Physics, and Computer Science, and Krishna Balaga from the Information Technology Office. The salient points of the talk were:

1) It is recommended that constituents do not install pirated software, as they may damage computers and make these vulnerable to attacks.
2) Using free and open-source software will not only avoid possible legal issues, but will reduce overall dependency on large software companies.
3) With regard to the letter of Adobe Corp. to scan University computers, Adobe, being a private entity, cannot compel other private individuals or institutions to give them information or allow them access to networks and private users.  As of the moment, the IT Office will not allow a "sniffing tool" to be deployed over the University network to gain access to users of the network.
4) The IT Office is open to any inquiries regarding this, or other IT matters.

The All UP Academic Employees Union president, Asst. Prof. Andrea Malaya Ragragio, expressed thanks to the speakers and participants who attended.

Sinabadan archi exhibit, 2017

Written by Rene Estremera on . Posted in Madayaw News

"SINABADAN: An exhibit on Indigenous Houses in the Philippines" from the UP Mindanao Architecture Student Council; presented at the CHSS ATRIUM on 22-23 February 2017.

"SINABADAN is a Bagobo Tagabawan term for 'panaghiusa' or unity. This exhibit revisits our Mindanaoan identity through Philippine vernacular architecture and ethnic-inspired art, and is meant to find the common thread that runs through our cultural diversity.

As we continue to hold a firm grasp on our roots as a people, we look into the essences of our art and architecture and find our shared humanity there, which hopefully, will also inspire us to reach for Sinabadan and travel the road to nation-building as one."
