UB’s efforts in enriching its students’ learning experience in the University.
In collaboration with its alumni, the University of Baguio (UB) has opened the newly refurbished audio-visual classroom in a ceremony last Nov. 8.
The technology-enhanced classroom, now WiFi-connected, was installed with a 75-inch interactive touchscreen monitor. The chairs were likewise replaced with theater seats.
In addition, floor repair and wall repainting were done as part of the restoration.
The renovation is a project of the University of Baguio Alumni Foundation Inc. (UBAFI).
The marker reads: [This] “is a manifestation of the generosity and gratitude of the UB alumni. It exemplifies [their] determination to foster cooperation and closer relations between the graduates and the university. It serves as a mark of dedication to encourage shared ventures toward UB’s [further] development.”
The funds used for the project were sourced from the UBAFI endowment fund which includes alumni fees, fees collected during homecoming activities, and monetary donations from UB alumni.
Other renovation projects by UBAFI are set for implementation covering other classrooms in the University.
During the turn-over ceremony, judo uniforms were likewise handed to the University as donation from
UB alumnus James Barry Bueno (center), UB High School '83, who is now based in California.
