Newbie Gabayanos were taken on a fun-filled Ateneo Gabay experience in this year’s GOrSem 2020: Zenith, held last September 28 until October 3.
Ateneo Gabay enchanted the Ateneo community and added more member-advocates to the family with its very own “Halina” as part of this year’s COA Recweek 2020: Coalesce, which ran from September 12-26.
Freshmen scholars caught their first glimpse of the Atenean scholar life through various talks and breakout sessions in Salubong 2020.
Ateneo Gabay launched its annual Bookworms at the Doghouse in Scholars’ Week: Extend. The project sold a variety of gummy candies from October 21 to 25, 2019.
Ateneo Gabay members took part in the first-ever Scholar’s Gratitude Project (SGP) in the 10th Ateneo Scholar’s Week: Extend at MVP Roofdeck October 21 to 25, 2019 as a way to show gratitude for the scholarship they received and for their personal blessings.
Ateneo Gabay celebrated its second-ever Scholars Got Talent (SGT): Excelsior last October 25 at the Leong Hall Roofdeck. It is a part of Scholars’ Night (S Night), which is the culmination of the festivities of the recently past Scholars’ Week (S Week) entitled “Extend”. According to this year’s event head, Clarissa de Ocampo, who agreed to an interview before the event, the S Night was meant to be a night where all scholars come together for camaraderie and fun.
Ateneo Gabay once more highlighted how it is to be an Atenean scholar as it spearheaded the Scholars’ 101 in MVP Roofdeck last October 24, 5:00 to 6:30 PM.
Ateneans delved into Ateneo Gabay’s education advocacy through film in LENTE, the organization’s film-screening activity for this year’s Talakayang Alay sa Bayan (TALAB). Held at the Faura AVR last October 8, 2019, LENTE featured the 2017 film “Maestra: An Educator” by Lemuel Lorca. Mr. Agustin Rodriguez of the Philosophy Department also connected the film to current social realities through a preliminary talk.
Ateneo Gabay held its first general assembly for academic year 2019-2020 last 15th of September at room 308 of Bellarmine Hall to reorient both its old and its new members to the “pagtataya” in its advocacy, pools, and projects. The assembly, which was supposed to be on the 13th, was moved to a later date due to the campus shutdown caused by consecutive earthquakes.
Originally scheduled to take place last August 9, Neofight finally happened last September 7, 2019 at the Escaler Hall. As early as 8:30 in the morning, both the Neofight core team and Scholars Support Group (SSG) Facilitators welcomed the new batch of freshmen scholars with dance routines and creative sign boards.
