It is with pride and great anticipation that we welcome all our fellow alumni to the 2016 UP College of Medicine Homecoming celebration.
The theme “Mulat sa UP, sa UP Muli!“ encapsulates what we feel is the essence of this year’s reunion.
MULAT means to awaken, to discover, to have learned, to have come of age. It reminds our alumni of our days in the cradle of the UPCM where we were nurtured and taught by our distinguished professors, encouraged by our fellow classmates, humbled and educated by our patients, delivered by the sweat and tears of our parents and our country, inspired by the successes of fellow alumni and held together by the dreams of many for us.
MULI means to return, to give back, to remember. The homecoming celebration is a reminder for all alumni not only to reminisce but also to share ourselves with the College where we grew, to now be the inspiration that others had been to us, to be the nurturing professors for future doctors and to continue to build the dream for us and those who will come after us.
The year-long celebration was launched with events that expressed our gratefulness and give honor to those who have meant much to us in our journey as medical students. Our class recollection “What Have We Become?” refocused our attention to the Source of all goodness, and the concert “Hay Buhay Medisina!” recognized our parents, and professors for their love and unwavering dedication.
It will be a very exciting year for all UPCM alumni, and we look forward to reminiscing, celebrating, and reconnecting with everyone. Class 1991 and 1966, Silver and Golden Jubilarians, enjoin you, our fellow alumni to the various activities throughout this year leading to the culminating Homecoming Ball at the new Shangri-la Fort in December.
