MCL set to hold 12th Foundation Week

Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) is set to celebrate this year's Foundation Week with the theme "MCL@12: At the Frontlines, Malayan!" on January 20-27, 2018.

Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) will be celebrating its 12th Foundation Week with the theme “MCL@12: At the Frontlines, Malayan!” on January 20 to 27, 2018.

“This year’s theme was taken from the Malayan Hymn that was written by our dear President, Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea. It is quite prophetic since we are now at a time when important changes are happening in the Philippine educational system. As MCL turns 12 this year, it bravely stands at the frontlines and is directly involved in asserting quality education to be at par with international standards,” shared Dean Maria Rhodora R. Austria of the E.T. Yuchengco College of Business, who is spearheading this year’s week-long celebration.

“This year’s Foundation Week is jam-packed with events for students and employees alike and is focused on building a stronger community spirit. These include a mix of activities that will challenge and encourage the mind, body and spirit,” Dean Austria continued.

The institutional event will kick off with Run Malayan 2018 at Greenfield, Sta. Rosa City, Laguna. Proceeds will go to the Center for Service-Learning and Community Engagement’s HAND & HEART Project. A motorcade from Southwoods to Calamba via National Highway will follow.

January 23 will start with a mass and prayer service, to be followed by the commencing ceremonies, the MCL Sports Wizards Cup parade, and Cheerdance Competition. A Financial Stewardship seminar will be held in the afternoon, along with Mr. & Ms. MCL 2018.

The 24th will start with groove in Zumba Malayan, to be followed by Palarong Pinoy. MCL will also be recognizing the loyalty of employees in the MCL Service Awards. Talents will be explored in MCL Got Talent and through Cinemalayan, where short films by PILAK, MCL’s film organization, will be showcased outdoors.

The 5th day will feature the Math Quiz Bee, Science Quiz Bee, and Brainmaster. Eleven singers will perform original songs at Musikamalayan, MCL’s annual songwriting competition. Farmers from MCL’s adopted community, Majayjay, will also be holding a Farmers Market Day.

On the 26th, faculty members will present at the MCL Faculty Research Colloquium, while game geeks battle in the League of Legends Tournament. The best of the bests will go head-to-head in the MCL Sports Wizards Cup finals, after which the MCL Night will be held.

A Career Fair is set for the last day of the Foundation Week, along with My Future, My Choice 2018, an open campus event where students under Grades 10 to 12 can experience their potential career through various workshops. A Friendship Baseball Game between the MCL Senior High School Mages and the Canlubang Baseball Team will be held in the afternoon.

The Mapua-PTC College of Maritime Education and Training will also conduct a medical mission in Caingin, Sta. Rosa City for Laguna Lake fishermen.

At the heart of each event is the cause to promote the core values of MCL: Excellence, Loyalty, Teamwork, Urgency, and Discipline.
