Entry 082

Oblation Wearing the Sablay

This year is the first time that University of the Philippines conducts its graduation rites in June. Last year, UP was one of the few universities in the country to effect the academic calendar shift from June to August. This was done, as I understood, in anticipation of the country’s adoption of measures to support the ASEAN Integration scheme. Regionally, the Philippines can now start to be on a par with other ASEAN universities. Because of this, the graduation rites also shifts from April to June.

Every year, the most popular UP icon is draped with the graduation sash called sablay.  Here are some images that I took.
