by PRINCE RONSON SABADO THE UNIVERSITY will be opening its doors to incoming freshmen and returning Thomasian students with its annual school-wide welcoming campaign, #BalikUSTe, with its theme "Make your mark, Tigers.” The event was physically discontinued for two consecutive years due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, halting its 2020 edition and conducting its virtual edition in 2021.
