  BIBA GUAM! BIBA UOG! THANK YOU TO THE UOG LIBERATION DAY FLOAT COMMITTEE FOR THEIR HARD WORK!




  A BIG thank you goes out to the UOG Liberation Day Float Committee for their hard work and creativity. There were several key symbols on the University of Guam’s float which represent the institution’s interpretation of this year’s parade theme. The theme was “Imagine Guam: 68 Years of Progress Through Peace.”   The first element was our representation of peace. The white dove with an olive branch is the recognized symbol for peace. To showcase our pride in Guam, we have instead used our former territorial bird - the Tottot, the Marianas Rose Crown Fruit Dove, with a lemai leaf. Peace in our community and our world allows the University to create an educational environment where students can reach their potential towards becoming contributing members of our society.   Our graduates made up the second symbol and are collectively represented by the people you see on the float. Their iconic attire characterizes many of the different careers that the University’s programs prepare our graduates to serve in.  For the last 60 years, UOG has developed a workforce with skills and knowledge to ensure that our alumni can educate, heal, and protect the people of our island.   The third symbol was the University’s Big G logo which emphasized progress and evolution. The logo was developed for our 60th anniversary as a step towards collegiate branding that was unique to our region. The big G letter logo is in the form of a stylized traditional fishhook which represents many things such as bounty, sustenance, art, culture, and education in the way we pass on traditions. The spirited Triton, the University’s mascot for many decades continues to take a place on the float with the Big G.     THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR FIRST-EVER FOUNDERS DAY GALA! As a result of the support we received from our sponsors and guests, we raised close to $60,000! Thank you!!! All funds raised from this effort will support the construction of the facilities in our 21st Century Campus Physical Master Plan.
