he end of classes in March last school year meant it
was time to put our books back into the shelves,
keep our multi-colored pens and highlighters, and
put to rest our trusty printers who were already
overworked form the tons of notes and acad-related
paperworks we had to finish. But alas, while most of us were
ready to let their skin be kissed by the scorching summer heat
or apply generous amounts of sunscreen that were already
begging to go out of the drawers they were stored for quite
some time, some of us readied their bp apparatuses and
placed their suturing skills to the test.
For the Order of Asclepius, summer meant mixing business
with pleasure. And with the recent academic shift, that meant

socio-civic endeavours which sought to render service to our

Order of Asclepius will continue to promote excellence in
community service. We endeavour to share and apply to the
university and the community what we have learned in the four
corners of Roxas Hall. In behalf of the Order, I thank all
Asclepian brothers and sisters as well as our partner
