Ateneo Gabay recently concluded this year’s Scholars’ Friendship Night (SFN) last November 4, 2016, at the Leong Hall Roof deck.
Scholars’ Friendship Night serves as the annual culminating event for the Scholars’ Support Group, which aims to introduce freshmen scholars to Ateneo de Manila University’s scholar community.
One of the night’s highlights, SFN Idol 2016, was composed of three song numbers by Ian Villafuerte, Damon Dadap, and a group named J@B3cK. It was then followed by performances from Gabay’s very own dance troupe, GADS, and musicians’ pool, GaBand. After the performances, guest speaker Mr. Arvin Boller gave an inspirational talk about overcoming one’s fear.
In the end, Damon Dadap, who sang his own original song, was crowned SFN Idol 2016. Alawi Sularte and Veronica Baguio were awarded Best in Costume for the male and female categories, respectively.
This project was led by Abigail Napenas, Alizza Ibrahim and Miguel Ignacio, and was hosted by Meriza Mamaril and Czarina Duka.
