2012 UOG "Big G" Float Artwork Competition Contest

The University of Guam Liberation Day Committee is pleased to announce the details of an art contest that will be the source of inspiration for our float entry this year. The main theme of the 2012 parade has yet to be announced. For the purpose of this contest, however, the objective is to find a float design that will represent the University of Guam while concurrently showcasing Chamorro culture, values and traditions (general themes used in past parades). This contest is open to all entrants who have an affinity to the University.

Winners of the Float Competition
will receive the following cash prizes:
1st Prize $300
2nd Prize $200
3rd Prize $100

SOE Alumni gather as part of the SOE Alumni Homecoming Gala celebration.  Pictured L-R:  Dr. Jose Q. Cruz; Dr. Catherine Stoicovy; Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera; Anna Pangelinan; Dr. Lourdes Klitzkie; and Dr. Patrick Leddy.



The SOE Alumni Homecoming Gala was a success with a blast from the past to the present on Monday, January 30, 2012 at the SBPA 129!  It was a memorable celebration with the fitting theme, "Meeting between the Young Ones and the Young Once."  Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera, Immediate Past President of the SOE Alumni Association, served as the Mistress of Ceremony.  SOE Dean, Dr. Patrick Leddy, greeted the audience with a warm welcome, which was followed by a truly inspirational speech by the UOG President, Dr. Robert Underwood.  Alumni from the Class of 1956 to the present were treated with entertainment of oldies but goodies, as well as modern performances.  Among the entertainers were GEMS, StarGazers Dance Troupe, song renditions by Lovelyn Trinidad and Kristian Villanueva, as well as community singing led by Dr. Lourdes Ferrer and Matt Raymundo.  Dr. Lourdes Klitzkie, SOE Alumni Advisor, was instrumental in inviting many of our SOE Alumni who were among the first students at UOG 60 years ago!  BIBA UOG!  BIBA SOE!
