IN commemoration of its 75th anniversary, the University of San Agustin (USA) College of Law will highlight the celebration with series of activities every Saturday for the whole month of August.
The celebration commenced last July 27 with an exhibit at SM City Iloilo showcasing the College’s history and distinguished alumni. The exhibit in the mall ran until August 1, but it is still on display at the Iloilo Hall of Justice.
A fun run dubbed as “Diamond Run” was held on August 2, which was participated in by more than 400 students, alumni, and other participants including Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog. The fun run was followed by a mass held at the USA Extension Campus in Sambag, Jaro and “Laro ng Lahi” wherein the alumni and students battled in traditional Filipino games.
