- Alumni share their Silliman story through Facebook: “I am from Vigan, Ilocos Sur. I attended night school in Manila while working in a cigarette factory, chanced on a SU brochure (1963) with work study grant. Worked as Doltz Hall desk assistant (1964-67), janitor/messenger of the college of arts and sciences, and weekend gardener of the Reynolds couple. SU gave me a great opportunity for my college education…” Dr. Romeo P. Ariniego (Outstanding Sillimanian Awardee, Medicine 2010).
