CPU personnel are finalizing the new signage in celebration of the 116-year founding anniversary of the university.
Central Philippine University will be celebrating its 116th Foundation Day on October 1, 2021 with the theme, “Ang Paghanduraw: Revisiting our Historical and Cultural Heritage.” The virtual celebration will be aired live via the CPU TV Channel Facebook Page.
According to this year’s CPU Foundation Day Committee Co-Chairperson, Rev. Francis Neil G. Jalando-on, the celebration aims to reminisce CPU’s good old memories as well as to share to the current generation of Centralians the value of Central Spirit and the unwavering love for our Alma Mater. This will also introduce them to the founders and foreparents of the CPU Community.
In the past 116 years, Central Philippine University has survived wars, typhoons, and even this pandemic; but just like the historical flagpole in its center, CPU continues to stand the test of time. Thus, this founding anniversary virtual program is a symbol of God’s faithfulness to CPU through the years.
“Ang Paghanduraw: Revisiting our Historical and Cultural Heritage” virtual program will start at 9:00 in the morning of October 1, 2021 which will be then followed by the CPUR Foundation Day Virtual Activity in the afternoon at 2:00.
