Alumni Updates (June 13-19)

The Silliman University Alumni Association Kingdom of Norway (SUAAKON), also known as the Silliman Vikings, participated in the 118th Philippine Independence Day Celebration and parade last June 11, 2016 in Youngstorget, Oslo. The celebration was organized by the Philippine Embassy in Norway and was done in cooperation with FilCom-Norway. FilCom is a federation of Filipino organizations, businesses, and individuals who actively come together for the good and protection of Filipinos in Norway.

The Silliman Vikings also had a fundraising through food sale during the activity. Assorted food items were contributed by Perla Somoza-Jahre, Josephine “Tata” T. Torremocha, Rowena Jansen and Ace Reyes, while Leudi May Gilberg and Richel Jane Aladin-Saile manned the Silliman Viking booth. The Lee brothers (Montclair, Montcliff and Montfort), who are all alumni based in Sweden, performed with their band during the celebration. The band officially opened the event by playing the Philippine National Anthem. The band’s finale was the Filipino lullaby song entitled “Ili-ili, tulog anay”.

UNIONBANK’s Talent Acquisition Officer Ms. Car Rigo and her team paid a visit on June 9, 2016 and met with Placement Officer Ms Arlou Cuevas and Alumni and External Affairs Director Mr. Ruben Bokingo.
