Junior and senior students of the College of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) bonded with their professors and administrators at the 2012 CBAA Night with the theme: "Knights, World, Business and Nature: ALL Connected NOW." The activity was held at the Golden Bay Fresh Seafoods Restaurant in Pasay City on March 23 at 5:30 pm.
CBAA Night is the culminating activity of the department and is a result of a year's worth of preparations. Asst. Prof. Raem Mendoza, overall event organizer, said: "We highlighted and gave recognition for the performances and activities for the whole year. So we recognize students who won contests inside and outside the Colegio who were not included in our Recognition Day."
Other event highlights were the screening of the audio-visual presentation on environment protection/community service, the turnover of the check donation to the Center for Community Development (CCD), and the coronation of the CBAA student King and Queen of the Night.
Letran rector and president Rev. Fr. Tamerlane Lana, O.P., was present at the event and gave the attendees a rousing inspirational message. Also present were vice-president for academic affairs Rev. Fr. Juan Ponce, O.P., CBAA dean Dr. Cristina M. Castro-Cabral, human resources director Asst. Prof. Jeffrey Consignado, and public affairs and media development director Jhennie Caldito-Villar.
While the event was organized primarily for junior and senior CBAA students, some freshmen and sophomores attended as well, prompting the organizers to plan changes for next year’s CBAA Night.
"We see the possibility of including all the students from the CBAA to attend next year. In effect, we’ll highlight all the [first to fourth year] activities of the CBAA students," Mendoza said.
