Attending an acquaintance party means opportunity to meet new set of friends most especially from the other departments. It is the time wherein we loosen the gap between the freshmen and the senior students. Last July 31, 2015, ICI-Kapatagan held its 4th Acquaintance Party with a masquerade inspired theme at Prince Hall, Majentika Bldg. Maranding, Lala, Lanao del Norte. Despite the heavy downpour of the rain, students were able to join the party dressed in their elegant gowns and tuxedos paired with their mysterious masks. The program formally started at 7 o’clock with an opening prayer, the singing of our national anthem and an opening remark given by our Program Head, Mr. Jerrum M. Suaring.
One of the highlights of the said event was the “Fame Walk” participated by selected students and club members of “The Ambassadors”. Fame Walk is a fashion show inspired walk wherein students show the improper and correct dress code in ICI Campuses. Different clubs like Porictix and Kruhay showed their amazing talents on stage. The faculty and staff did not exempt themselves as they also had a dance number that thrilled the crowd. In this event, the newly elected SBO Officers SY 2015-2016 also made their oath taking together with their new adviser Ms. Ruby Marilou Piedad.
When the program was about to end, the master of ceremony announced to give the special awards. Mr. Harrold Lebradilla and Ms. Warjen Agosto won the Faces of the Night. The Eye Catchers of the Night went to Mr. Fradz Rabago and Ms. Angela Bacas. In addition, the Transformers of the Night went to Mr. Jade Verano and Ms. Mary Rose Umalsa while Mr. Joshua Malco and Ms. Angelica Caro were awarded as the Early Birds.
Afterwards, Ms. Hezel Mae Gongob, the event organizer gave the closing remarks. The program ended at around 9:30 PM. It was the disc jockey’s turn to play the music to students to enjoy the dance floor up until 10:00 o’clock. As the party ended, the students left with smiles in their faces bringing home a lot of pleasant memories to cherish and friendships to treasure.
