No Classes on Monday

From the Inquirer News Service
Arroyo: Aug 29 to be non-working holiday
posted 08:26pm (Mla time) Aug 27, 2005

PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Saturday ordered Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita to draft an order declaring August 29, Monday, a public holiday in observance of National Heroes' Day.

The President gave the order two days after Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye declared that Monday would be a regular working day because Heroes' Day was normally observed on the last Sunday of August every year under the law.

Ermnita told the reporters that the President called him about the change in holiday plans only at 6 p.m.

Freshman Night 2005

This year's Freshman Night was no exception to the sacred Malcolm tradition of cross dressing, debauchery and revelry. Just for one night, the teaching of law in the grand manner was put aside and the teaching of more worldly things was placed in its stead.

There was music, laughter and incredibly hairy women. What more could you ask for right?

Kudos to D2008 for a splendid job :)

The winners are:

1B- Vice relay
1D- Best block presentation
1D- Ms. Freshman 2005 (Bruno Tangangco)
1D- Ms. Talent (Oliver Yee)
1D- Freshman week over-all champions

* ed's note: unfortunately, these were the only results available to me. If you know the other winners, feel free to give a holler and i'll post them right away. Tao lang :)
