Before the year ends, UA Administration and academic council held its Christmas Party at UA Convention Hall, Thursday, December 15.

Each department dedicated a special performance and participated in the fun games.

Moreover, gifts were given to random faculty and staff whose name got drawn in a raffle.

On the other hand, Dr. Victor E. Navarra, SUC President, announced in his speech that next year, 136 plantilla positions will be made available for part-time faculty who wish to apply for a permanent position.
