A Recuperating ABSC From Lazo and Avila (And Quitoy)

STRUCK BY controversies and distrust, the Faculty of Arts and Letters Student Council (ABSC) is taking light but bold steps in regaining the Artlets’ trust. Those plaguing issues did not fall on deaf ears, but generated much interest among Artlets—as the supermajority is still walking on eggshells. The trust shattered into …

Same Old

DURING THE first week of our classes, my block was not able to meet our professor in Ethics because the room assigned for that period was occupied by another class. In the second week, we were not able to meet our professor again because of the same reason. It was …
