Atty. Peter Irving C. Corvera, Vice Chairman of the CPU BOT, explained the reason behind the BOT Night. He said that it was the first time in the history of CPU that such an event happened. The main reason is to introduce the BOT Members to the alumni and all officials of the university. The Chairman of the CPU BOT, Atty. Von Lovel D. Bedona, acknowledged everyone and stressed that all alumni of CPU are VIPs or Very Important Persons.

“The Alumni has a very important role in this university,” said CPU President Dr. Teodoro during his greetings. He also expressed his thanks to the alumni and gave credit to their support to the success of the university. Dr. Robles also gave a brief report through an audio-video presentation.


Tawag ng Tanghalan Finalist and College of Engineering alumnus JM Bales performed his signature songs.

It was a night of fun and dancing as guests enjoyed performances from balladeer Dr. Jesse Penacerrada, Warner Music Philippines Artist Ethan Loukas, Tawag ng Tanghalan finalist JM Bales, and WVPRISAA Dance Sports Champions Mico Andrei J. Hechanova and Aleia Robbyn Muyco.

During the program, the Board of Trustees also presented their proposed project of the CPU LED Wall Display project to be put up in the Main Entrance and the Flag Pole Rotonda. Announcements will be put up in the said LED Walls instead of printing them in tarpaulins. The project has an estimated cost of PHP 5,000,000.
