The 1st EUROFLOCK that brought together Sillimanians in Europe was held in Berlin, Germany in 2014. After its success, the organizers were inspired to turn this alumni gathering into a biennial event. The 2nd EUROFLOCK was held in Dublin, Ireland and hosted by the Silliman University Alumni Association Ireland-Northern Ireland Chapter. EUROFLOCK is also supported by three other alumni chapters: SUAA-United Kingdom, SUAA Ireland-Northern Ireland and SUAA-Norway.
The Sillimanians in Sourthern Tagalog (SINTA) headed by its chapter president Luna Tizon-Molina, is hosting Galak Luzon, an alumni gathering to be held this year in Tagaytay City, Cavite, from April 26 – 29. All interested are encouraged to register now.

This event brings together in a three-day fellowship Sillimanians in Luzon as well as those from other parts of the country. Galak Luzon is the Luzon counterpart of the Sadya Mindanaw and the Hugyaw Visayas, the three major annual Philippine fellowships outside of our beloved Silliman Campus — and which are held every summer on a rotation basis. This year, it is the turn of the alumni from Luzon, and SINTA takes it on as host.
