“Together Once Again – After 50 Years” is the theme of CPU College of Commerce Batch 1973. More than 45 members have come together and celebrated their Golden Jubilee Reunion, as much as it’s just the First Alumni Homecoming of Batch ’73. Well-liked President Flemia Armada-Eusebio and her very supportive officers did their best to make the significant event on February 4, 2023 – more memorable.

The activities started inside the CPU College of Business and Accountancy Office at the New Valentine Building. They had socializations at 10:00 in the morning; snacks, lunch and more socialization until 3:00PM.
