Three college representative positions in the Laguna Campus Student Government (LCSG) and four batch government posts were filled in a series of appointments during the Legislative Assembly (LA) Session last March 26. Legislators also approved a call to support this year’s Earth Hour movement.
Bianca Tan was appointed as 72nd ENG Batch Vice President. As part of the graduating batch, she plans on holding company mixers and on-the-job training seminars for students while also inviting alumni to share their work and internship experiences.
Danielle De Leon and Jelie Julia were unanimously installed as the BLAZE2020 Batch President and Batch Vice President, respectively. BLAZE2021 LA Representative Pia Beltrano, who spoke on behalf of De Leon, said that the latter intends to prioritize making thesis and graduation application less stressful for her batch. Meanwhile, BLAZE2020 LA Representative Anton Mapoy, who read out Julia’s speech, highlighted a focus on community building and making the batch a safe space for students.
Lastly, Celine Dabao was chosen as EDGE2018 LA Representative. She plans to focus on voter empowerment, education, and engagement for students, as well as hold webinars and workshops to aid graduating students in finding job opportunities.
Legislators also unanimously approved designations for three LCSG college representatives seats. As the new Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC College of Education Representative, Jea Seguisabal aims to strengthen the relationship among students by establishing a General Assembly and creating a support team and help desk for addressing concerns.
Angel Lopez, the College of Computer Studies Representative, targets to showcase student projects through an exhibit and create a channel for faster communication. She also intends to continue an item-sharing program that was proposed by her predecessor last year.
Meanwhile, John Matthew Jobo, the Ramon V. del Rosario College of Business Representative, is eyeing to hold a webinar to inform students of student-related processes and launch a learning platform to help lower batches with their academic concerns.
Support for Earth Hour
A call to action expressing support for Earth Hour was also released, encouraging Lasallians to participate in the event last March 27 from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. The statement also called on Lasallians to support similar initiatives for the betterment of mother nature.
Held every March, Earth Hour is one of the largest global movements to spread awareness on climate change and nature loss.
The statement was approved by the Committee on National Issues and Concerns, Center for Social Concern and Action, and the Office of Student Leadership Involvement, Formation and Empowerment.
Another resolution on the budget allocation of the University Student Government for Academic Year 2020-2021 was laid on the table as the Office of the Executive Treasurer had yet to finalize the figures.
