Last January 31, 2016, a group of BA Organizational Communication students won the Public Relations Society of the Philippines Grand Prix Competition held at ICITE Building, Eastwood, Libis, Quezon City, with their campaign AGAPito: #BeBagyoReady.

Two competing teams from UP Manila, Team AGAPito and #KapitPH Team Kapitan, made it to the finals. Team AGAPito was named champion with a unanimous decision from the judges, garnering a score of 97%.


It was a  special day which marked the beginning of new leadership at the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). “Napakahalaga ng araw na eto dahil simula ito ng isang panibagong yugto dito sa CAS”, remarked Chancellor Padilla as she delivered her speech after administering the oath taking of the new Dean and his management team in a simple ceremony held at the CAS Oblation Garden.

Dean Leonardo R. Estacio Jr., Professor and former Chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences was recently appointed by the Board of Regents as the 10th Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, University of the Philippines Manila (UPM).
