A night of fun, food and friendship, the Faculty and Staff Summer Fun Night 2019 is a celebration of God’s goodness to CPU.
The Faculty and Staff Summer Fun Night 2019 started at 4:00 PM on Friday, April 5 at the CPU Big Field. Everyone dressed in their attractive summer wear—mostly, Hawaiian-inspired outfits. This year’s theme is appropriately called “Aloha.”
University President, Dr. Teodoro C. Robles, welcomed the faculty and staff with an inspiring message for the employees—reminding them of the importance of cooperation and relaxation. He expressed his appreciation for the organizers’ hard work in putting the event together.

Before offering a prayer, CPU Office of Communications Director, Rev. Francis Neil G. Jalando-on, impressed upon the employees the essence of the evening celebration. He reminded them that “It was on April 1, 1953 when the Department of Education approved our request for university status.” He added that it was but fitting that the historical changing of Central Philippine College into Central Philippine University be celebrated.
