ICI Celebrates Acquaintance Party 2011

ICI honors every student by giving them a special day with the chance to mingle and meet new friends. Because of this very reason, the institution with the aid of its Student Body Organization (SBO) celebrates its Acquaintance Party at Mimar’s Springway Resort in Timoga, Buru-un, Iligan City last July 22, 2011. ICI’ans crowded the place as they arrive one by one with their classmates and friends. Every student sign the registration by presenting their ID’s or Certificate of Registration (COR) to ensure that no outsiders can enter the premises and preserve the exclusivity of the place for the time being. Afterwards, they go to their respective departments and make themselves comfortable as they occupy the tables exclusively provided for them. Like any acquaintance party, a programme is prepared for the formality of the event as well as for the entertainment of everyone.

Initially, the emcee for the event calls every student to gather around in preparation for the opening remarks. He is one of ICI’s English Instructors and has been the emcee for many of the school’s events for the past few years, Mr. Sean B. Boglosa welcomes everyone with a cheerful hello. Subsequently, he then introduces the faculty members from different departments as well as the members of the WebX Team.

There is an obvious increase on the number of students this year, all thanks to the great effort of The Marketing Team making it another reason to celebrate. With a huge place like Mimar’s, students can’t help themselves but to wander around and some of them plunge into the swimming pools to cool themselves. Moments later, students once again gather around as one of the highlighted events of this year’s party, the ICI Faces 2011 is about to begin. Loud cheers and shouts can be heard around the place as 9 students from different departments make their way to the center to introduce themselves and greet spectators with their most pleasing smiles. They then amaze everybody as they perform their presentation numbers and dress in different fashion styles that enhance their physical appearance. Consequently, the emcee once again calls the attention of all students so they could participate in different team games. Indeed a great way to mingle and interact with new personalities. Happiness is all over the place as they play with enthusiasm and humor. Prizes are then given to the winners which come in different useful objects.  Freebies are also given such as bags and thumb drives for the lucky winners of the raffle draw.

A few hours later, the awarding of winners for the ICI Faces 2011 call’s everyone’s attention. They then cheer for their department representatives and give them encouragement. Every student has high hopes of their bets winning the competition but only two stand out to be this year’s Mr. and Ms. ICI Faces 2011. They are John Lendun Petallo and Queenie Manta both from the HRM Department.

The whole event ends successfully with new friends and memories that will last for a long time. This year’s acquaintance party is truly a memorable one because it not only show’s how people can interact with each other but also how they can unite as one.

ICI Grand Reunion

ICI Grand Reunion
“Rhythm of the Past”

Last December 30, 2009 ICI’s cherished plan was put to action: It was the Grand Reunion. The main objective of the reunion was to regain acquaintances and connect with ICI graduates. The plan was laid down by Ms. Frances Joan Leuterio- Quiapo, ICI Industry Coordinator together with Mr. Sean Boglosa and Ms. Lovely Lagario.

The theme of the event was “Rhythm of the Past”. The theme seem to fit the objective of the reunion.  ICI wants to re-connect with its graduates and be acquainted with their achievements after graduating from ICI. The highlight of the event was the sharing of the alumni’s achievements and experiences.  The school president was in attendance and listened to the success stories of its graduates.

ICI on its 11 years of providing quality technical education had already produced successful individuals and most likely an indication that ICI is on the right track. In the end, the event only proves that ICI was indeed a monumental instrument to the success of its graduates. ICI will continually upgrade its facilities and offer relevant courses for the ever changing world and will do its best to produce more competitive and quality graduates.

ICI – Your Skills Your Success!

7th Iligan CIty Computing Fair

A time to unveil the talent and knowledge.

A time for ICI to prove that it got what it takes to be proud.

ICT which means INFORMATION, COMMUNICATION, TECHNOLOGY.   Three (3) words that mean so much and go far than using them individually. ICT celebration is a yearly activity to promote ICT industry and provide a good opportunity to reach prospective clients. This year, as a part of the ICT celebration, Iligan joined  its 7th ICCF fair last November 24-25, 2009 held at MSU-IIT campus. It was a 2 day event hosted by MSU-IIT School of Computer Studies with its theme: “Promoting Peace and Development in Mindanao through Excellence in ICT”.

This year’s event offers Seminars on Current ICT Trends, Technical Forum, and several competitions such as a Quiz Show for High School and College Students, Open-Programming, On- the-Spot Digital Arts, Computer Hardware Servicing and some ICT activities, presentations, and a Job Fair. All the events were distributed to fit for the 2 day event.

The program was opened by Prof. Jeremy V. Pinzon, Dean of School of Computer Studies, while Chancellor Marcelo P. Salazar, MSU-IIT Chancellor  welcomed the participants.  Dr. Emmanuel M. Lagare, Vice- President for the Academic Affairs of MSU-IIT System together with the first district representative Hon. Congressman Vicente “Varf” Belmonte gave their warmest messages in the event. Later in the program sponsors were given time to share their presentations.

It was in the afternoon that the competition proper started. The On-the-Spot Digital Arts and the Computer Hardware Servicing Competition are the first two (2) competitions done at different venue. On- the-spot Digital Arts was held at the BPO Lab, 2/F IDS Bldg where Prof. Aloha May H. Ambe did the briefing about the contest rules and mechanics. Being the participating school, and the school that offers courses in line with the two competitions that was ongoing, ICI sends its best students for these competitions.  Jammie Lee Lueck is ICI-Iligan’s lone participant for the On-the-Spot Digital Arts Competition with her Coach Ryan Sumampong, one of the Digital Media Arts and 2D Animation Instructor.   On the other hand, ICI-Iligan and ICI-Bugo, both had participants for the Computer Hardware Servicing Competition.  Roxanne Lumacang,  Josefus Caldelina, Erwin Salcedo with coach Miclen “Keken” Gungob, is ICI-Bugo’s competing team. While Jahary Nanaman, Kalista Elaiza Balberona, John Daryl Balberona with coach Carmelito “Dhoi” Bitas is ICI-Iligan’s competing team. ICI-Bugo and ICI-Iligan is counted as a separate team for the competition. The participants did Assembling and Disassembling with Safety Working Condition, Installation of the Operating System, Troubleshoot Printers and Scanners, Troubleshoot a Network and a lot more.

Day two (2) of the event highlights the continuation of the Computer Hardware Servicing Competition along with the Open Programming competition and the Quiz Show for both High School and Collegiate Level. Open–Programming Competition was held at BPO Lab, 2/F with Joseth L. Rilar brief the participants of the contest rules and mechanics. While the Quiz Show was held at IDS Multi-Purpose Hall with Prof. Dante R. Dinawanao briefed the participants’ on the contest rules. Unfortunately ICI-Iligan do not have a participant for the Open-Programming Competition. Yet, ICI-Bugo participated in the competition with coach Meriam Mejias. For the Quiz Show competition, ICI-Iligan participated the event which is represented by Paolo Immanuel Abdullah and Ringo Lapeceros with coach Archie Molina.

While the competition is going on, a Seminar-Workshop on Current Practices and Frontiers of Computer was done at the first day and Series on Computation, Complexity and Unsolvability on the second day which was held at CED Amphitheater.

Awarding ceremony excites everyone especially the participants and the school administrators alike.  A number of schools participated in the different competition but, ICI proves that it has what it takes to be proud of. ICI-Iligan’s lone participant Jammie Lee Lueck garnered 3rd place for the On-the-Spot Digital Arts competition.  While on Computer Hardware Servicing Competition team ICI-Iligan placed 2nd next to team ICI-Bugo who undoubtedly placed 1st. Though they travel far, they really do bring home the bacon.


At the end, the event goes well and leaves ICI a realization, that, what we achieved in this event is a summary of patience, and hard work combine with knowledge, expertise and experience of our instructors. It is also a day that ICI is so proud that we have not just grown from a seed to a firm tree but we got what it takes to be called the best technical vocational school in Northern Mindanao. It bares the sweetest fruits that give us a silent success.

To all the participants, coaches, and winners, CONGRATULATIONS.
