ARANGKADA SA MANILA 2014

History


The Upsilon Sigma Phi, North America, Inc. (USPNA) is a cooperative endeavor of the Fellows of the North American continent who found the World Wide Web and joined the cyberspace Fellowship that had been born by the efforts of Butch Bandong’73 in October 1995 and subsequently labored over by Zoe Viray’75.

The genesis of the Upsilon Net improved the contacts between Fellows residing in far flung locales of the North American continent, Europe, other countries abroad, and the Philippines. The Net renewed the spirit of Fellowship and the camaraderie among alumni Fellows globally. It allowed the interchange of dormant memories and stirred remembrances that led to shared aspirations and mutual recognition of the need to nurture the growth and development of the resident Fellows of the University of the Philippines in Diliman and Los Baños. It facilitated efforts to inform and organize fellowships and reunions of Fellows at the national level and globally. As a result, USPNA successfully staged World Reunions held every two years in North America.

Meanwhile the UP Diliman and Los Banos chapters, as well as the local chapters of Cebu and Davao, have been staging one successful fellowship after another. IF86 Isang Fellowship 2011, Rendibu sa Cebu 2011, Pasko sa Ciudad 2012, Pista sa Nayon 2012, Bangkaw sa Dabaw 2013 are well-attended gatherings worthy of the Department of Foreign Affairs campaign line “ITS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES”. The USPAA Board enjoins all brods and sis based abroad to visit Manila on January 29 to February 1, 2014. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to attend ARANGKADA SA MANILA 2014 : The Global Reunion. This will serve as our kick-off activity for the fraternity’s centennial year celebration in 2018. We promise a fun-filled and memorable celebration….See you soon!
