Hallo boybisaya. I believe you are based outside the Philippines. I miss SU, too! Especially Scheide Farm - the nice smell of it!

Anyway, I noticed that you posted your message on June 12. Where I am basing now we had an Independence Picnic. Filipinos organise it every year; never been there, though.

So which class were you in?

Aggies '99,
Josephen

Hi Josephen!! The irony is that I'm still based here in the Philippines but now living in Manila but I did grow up in Dumaguete. I still visit Silliman once a year but I see unfamiliar faces. I guess leaving the halls of the college of engineering 10 years ago could be the reason (BSME '89). Just passing time along the corridors of Luce Auditiorium was also very memorable.
I only we could turn back the clock and relive those moments... Very Happy

Yes, was a little bit late to notice your location. I was not looking at it when I posted my message. I was thinking, 'this bisaya could be a Seaman or something'. If my guess is right, you may want to pass by if you happen to be at Rotterdam.

So you are not only a 'bisaya' but also a 'tagalog' now - bisayangtagalog or tagalogngabisaya Very Happy

I was home during the Buglasan Festival 2006. Did join with the SU Mavericks a little bit. I was a visitor myself. As an Agronomy major, I (and I think the rest of us Agron) never engaged myself with the Animal Science activities. But then I realised I missed a lot. We, agronomy majors, are the 'individualistic' types while the animal science always have that 'brotherhood/sisterhood' sense of contact. The warm togetherness I envy from them.

But it was never too late to engage with the Animal Sciece majors. I hope that I will be joining them during my next homecoming.

Pista baya sa amo last 13 (Sibulan). We still have left-overs from the fiesta...in case you happen to pass by.

Yep. You're darn right BisayangTagalog fits the description pero always proud to ba a bisaya and of course also proud to be a Sillimanian. Studied there for 16 yrs (kinder to college) and so far I'm doing great in my field but not in eng'g but in IT. I'll be in Dumaguete next week and I'm very thrilled and excited, and going home will never be complete w/o a visit to Silliman. I also used to go to Sibulan for the town Fiesta pero that was also decades ago... cheers

well, i guess silliman u. is so special. that you really miss it so much! but just so you know, i don't miss silliman , maybe its because i'm still roaming the halls of su. But the funny fact is, we hate the school when we are still in there. but once you get out you'll miss it like helL! isn't it stupid and funny in the same time? lol! alien

My dear Louise,

The 'stupid and funny' thing about it is that this is NOT my case.

Hope you leave the Halls of SU without that 'hate' feeling of yours.

Good luck,
Josephen

Yes louise I do understand you sentiments, but life in the campus is far better than life in the corporate world, its always dog eats dog type of competition in the corporate environment. So always make the most of your campus life since it only happens once in a lifetime (for most of us) so that when you look back it will always bring pleasant memories, and a smile on your pretty face...

good day everyone, (luise,boybisaya, josephen),

its nice to hear you guys missing your old school, SU was once my school,luckily didnt finish my EE. anyway idid enjoy my stay in SU.

dgte is really a nice place to stay, no doubt about it, but not a very good place to go for jobs, that is why most of us go out to look for greener pasture.

Miss josephen, do you happen to know miss Rinley Dizon during your college days in agriculture or Lamerto Rosalem?

hope we can invite some other bisaya to start posting here..

hear you guys,,,

lady_bird,

sent you PM.

what a small world, they are all fine, even though theres no other way to go but getting older everyday, lola vera is goin her way...

i was not able to finish in SU, because i was to good to be true, hehehe i did miss the environment even if i was still in dgte at that time studying and working, SU was totally a different school, i did try to compare it with Saint PAul university Tuguegarao where i did my master studies,and other colleges i went, SU was unique in many sense.

good for you, stable in UK right now...

for us the wheel is still turning,,

Thanks for the updates about them shakoy ,seems so long since I saw auntie Elvie. It's fine here in uk but as I said there's no place like home,balik ra gihapon ta ani.

Life goes on where ever we are ,just making the best out of .Can't wait to come back.

It's true Silliman is unique,with its unique campus, and one of the aspects I liked was it has no enforced student uniform dress code.Anyone can wear what they like .During my days it was safe there,but not sure now which is a big change.Despite of all the news that bring alarming signals, better be aware and be safe .

I totally agree, boy!! High school or college campus life should be treasured because these are among the best years of people's lives, with some exceptions, of course! Personally, my Silliman experience were awesome...best teachers, best friends, best founder's day celebrations, best learning experience..yes, best memories for campus life!! I must be nostalgic having 2 oil paintings of Silliman in my house here in Texas.
Shakoy, the pic you posted is exactly the image of one of my paintings and the other one is Silliman portals by the sea with a tartanilla outside the gate.
