Dili man unta lisud pero makaguol kun buot hunahunaon. Sa kadaghanan, wala nato makita kung unsa ang atong tumong aning kalibutana. Wala man untay gebutang na papilit pero nganong dili man ‘ta makahawa. Di nimu madamha na gepugngan lamang kita sa mga butang nga ge tugon nga mao kunoy dapat buhaton. Ge hulma atong pang hunahuna sa usa ka hulmahan nga pwerte’ng ugaha nga bisag usa ka tanom dili maka bunga. Daghan ang napalongan sa ilang mga suga, daghan napul-an sa ilang mga duwa, kay ingnan sila nga kani usa lamang ka butang para sa pambata. Kung makit-an ka nila nga naglahi ikaw mahimo’ng bati. Pugson ka nila hangtod ikaw makonsensya og mabuta hangtod makapangutana ka kung sakto pa ba. Daghan kaayo’g natouk hangtod dili na makalihok. Wala man unta’y papilit pero nganung ila man gayud ka’ng ipiit sa sitwasyon nga dili nimu gustong buhaton. Pero og kung pananglitan mo abot man gani kining tanan sa imong atubangan. Dapat nimu ablihan ang takob sa botilya, uyugon ang sulod sa baol ug paminawon ang tingog sa kwerdas kung asa natono imuhang linya, ihaom pagsulod ang nag kayagaw na palaisipan, sakaon ang hagdanan og ayaw kahadlok matagak sa ilusyon. Ayaw’g kasaag sa kawanangan ky ikaw mismo ang naka tag-iya sa imong desisyon. Paliboti imohang harden ug nagalain-laing klase sa buwak, mamunga kani og tinoud nga walay sagol na bakak. Ayaw’g hunong hantod mogawas ang natural na nawong sulod sa maskara na kada adlaw nilang nakita, og diha nimu makit-an kung nganu naa kay ge suklan para dili ka mapalonggan sa kalayo nga nagatuyok sa imong gamay na kaban.

Maayong Pag-abot, Iskolar!

IN THIS YEAR'S RECOGNITION RITES

Felicitations to the Outstanding Students of CCAD UP Cebu

The College of Communication, Art, and Design (CCAD) of the University of the Philippines Cebu brings together its students’ achievements to celebrate academic excellence and superior artistry. 

In solidarity with one another's safety within the context of these unprecedented times, CCAD holds a virtual convocation that recognizes undergraduate students who have earned the distinction of honorific scholarship with stringent absolute weighted average, namely, “1.45” or better for University Scholars and, if not classed as University Scholar, “1.75” or better for College Scholars

We also acknowledge the high caliber artistic prowess of students who earned coveted awards in the long-running Jose T. Joya Student Competition and Exhibition in the Arts organized annually by the Fine Arts faculty in the College.

Recognition rites foster a sense of accomplishment and achievement that each student is encouraged to aspire for. This celebration encourages us to look back and appreciate each student’s progress and pave the way for the institution to show how much it values its students' hard work, dedication, and perseverance. 

Through this convocation, the College aims to  inspire the honorees to carry with them their determination, honesty, a sense of community, and courage as they enter a new age that demands mastery in communication, art, and design.

"Steven Pressfield writes about this kind of resistance and it’s role in the creative practice in his book, the War of Art, saying “the more important a call or action to our soul's evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.” May you continue to face the resistance present in your daily challenges as students and seek to transform it as passionate and worthwhile pursuits, in your quest to becoming creative professionals."
