MEMO TO : THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY
RE : ATFEST REST DAY
With the Alumni Homecoming kicking off yesterday, the Ateneo Fiesta 2016 is now in full swing. Despite the daunting challenges due to time, space and financial constraints, the AtFest, thus far, is a success and is shaping up to be one of the most meaningful and memorable.
For this, I thank the University community for your full cooperation, wholehearted support, and active participation. I also thank and congratulate the men and women behind the arduous tasks of planning, preparing and managing: the members of the Steering and working committees, the staff of Alumni Relations, the Alumni groups, the academic organizations, and the student leaders of the El Consejo Atenista.
In appreciation of all the effort and hard work everyone has invested in this traditional celebration, I am declaring the coming Monday, 05 December, a University rest day. I hope we take this time-off from work not only to relax and unwind, but also to remember Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, our patroness and, through her intercession, to give thanks to God for a peaceful, joyful and meaningful week.
Muchas gracias a todos!
