CAPTURE September 5 to 15, 2017

Last September 5, we rang in UP CAP’s voyage for the year as we launched our CAPture Gallery at the BA 3rd Front! The gallery, clad with the splendour of Brazil, truly encapsulated the magical myriad of opportunities in store for UP CAP this year.

The launch was kicked o by a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the UP CAP President, Josh Sonza, and representatives from the co-presenter, Philip Morris International.

Variety of food was served such as Krispy Kreme and empanadas. To add, all throughout the week, an online game was held for the CBA and SE batches, where the SE seniors won.

On September 12, the gallery was then relaunched to the School of Economics walkway. To end the CAPTURE week, the event was culminated by the awarding of winners and free La Lola Churros.

NOTABLE FEATS UP CAP Milestones throughout the Semester

The 30th year of UP CAP was indeed a year of firsts – the application process included a case analysis, the planning and team-building sessions involved the officers, and the officers were given opportunities to function as an associate director in auxiliary events. More than these, UP CAP hosted the first-ever UPLB Career Summit, and the first-ever UP CAP A.C.L.E. All of these achievements wouldn’t have been possible with out the support and hardwork of the organization’s members, and the sponsors.
