DChE, UPLB SChemES Welcome New Freshmen to UPLB Chemical Engineering

On August 29, 2023, UPLB Society of Chemical Engineering Students (UPLB SChemES), together with UPLB Department of Chemical Engineering (DChE), welcomed the newest batch of BS Chemical Engineering students in its trademark partnership activity: UPLB ChE New Freshie Orientation at the CEAT Lecture Hall. The orientation served as the primary introduction of the freshies to the chemical engineering program and the culture within it.

Starting off the opening remarks, Ms. Patricia Anne Mae Dalisay, the current and the 37th president of UPLB SChemES, shared some words of warm welcome and greetings towards the freshies. Followed by the Department Chair, Dr. Monet Concepcion Detras introduced the faculty members and the organizational chart of the chemical engineering department. Onto the academics, the Curriculum and Instruction Committee Chair, Dr. Jewel Capunitan, shared the overview of the chemical engineering education, its components and the distinct specializations here in UPLB.

To further illustrate what it’s like to be a UPLB Chemical Engineering student, two testimonies of different university standings told their own stories, with messages to their co-ChE students. For the freshie testimonial, Ms. Allena Jeunice Herrera started and ended her testimony with congratulatory remarks to her batchmates. For the senior testimonial, Ms. Sofia Cunanan detailed her experiences in her inspiring speech for the freshies.

To honor the cream of the crops of the latest batch, an awarding ceremony for the Top 10 UPCA qualifiers was held where they were given certificates and tokens, courtesy of UPLB SChemES.

Nearing the end of the activity, a photo opportunity was done where all the ChE freshies, DChE faculty, and UPLB SChemES resident members came together to take wonderful pictures of this milestone event. Led by Dr. Detras, everyone re-created the iconic “DChE” pose which is a popular pose in UPLB chemical engineering community.

May the essence of being a UP student, upholding the values of honor and excellence, be with you always. Best of luck ahead in your chemical engineering journey in UPLB, freshies!
