9 Amazing Things from DZUP RC’s 9th Year of Airing

That is a wrap for DZUP Radio Circle’s 9th anniversary celebration, which recently concluded this month of October! The lined up events garnered positive responses and big turnouts from the students and faculty of UP Diliman.

1. Replay

The best of the Boses ng Estudyante (BNE) Strip, DZUP RC’s flagship program lineup, unleashed itself last September 29. DZUP programs Lakwachika, Samahang Bidang Bida, Ikaw Naman, and Student YOUniverse are now online, and anyone can access the episodes anytime, anywhere. Avid listeners of the BNE Strip got a flashback of their favorite moments with the radio programs. The online podcast will be updated every month with freshly picked episodes.

2. Life in Color

Music, videos, and other festivities colored the lobby of the College of Mass Communication as DZUP RC presented how the organization achieved such length in the airwaves and in the university. It caught the attention of the students and made them listen, watch, and read for a minute or two to know DZUP RC’s history.

3. UPCurrents Launch

In partnership with the Diliman Interactive Learning Center, the organization launched a new smart phone app–an app that updates the entire UP community, and lets them share these updates as well. The UPCurrents app provides different kinds of useful information, from college updates, to the Alumni Updates, to RSS Feeds (news feeds from UP offices news, events, and updates), an events calendar, video channels (of UP feeds of colleges and offices), the UPinionator wherein the opinions of professors are viewed, social sharing, and of course, a livestreaming function for the University’s official radio stations, UP-FM 87.5 and DZUP 1602.

For this event, anyone who was interested simply dropped by the booth, downloaded the app, signed up for registration, and got the chance to win prizes. UP students discovered the new smartphone app that could make their lives easier and more accessible to the university’s information and updates.

4. For The Record

Radio enthusiasts and fans of RX 93.1’s The Morning Rush were able to meet and greet its hosts Chico Garcia, Gino Quillamor, and Delamar Arias as they gave a talk on everything about radio, such as managing, hosting, and performing. They also gave out their tips and advice for anyone who wants to be in the industry and shared some personal stories about their journey as radio DJs.

5. Diner Date

Faculty, students and staff celebrated RC’s anniversary with a grand pakain in the ol’ diner fashion. Burgers and rootbeer float were served at the College of Mass Communication FOI Garden.

RC also gave its appreciation to the college’s teachers in an advanced celebration of Teachers’ Day last October 5.

6. Elevate 3.0

Over 300 students from all over the Philippines flocked to UP Diliman to attend the biggest student journalism workshop of 2014. A great set of mentors taught students who are interested in Editorial Writing, News Writing, Copyreading & Headlining, Photojournalism, Radio Scriptwriting and News Writing. Experienced speakers, such as Ms. Jing Castaneda, and Ms. Maeanne Los Banos, also talked about life in the real world of journalism and inspired the aspiring young journalists by telling them the power of the profession.

7. Homeward Bound

DZUP RC’s Alumni graced the night of fun, games, and strolls down memory lanes. Held at Beehive Events Place in Maginhawa, members and alumni alike shared laughter and love. The organization gave thanks to the undying support from the alumni and to building a stronger connection between the members and the alumni.

8. Thank You

DZUP RC would like to thank everyone who came to and supported each event. From the sponsors, media partners, organization partners, to the students, faculty, and members of the organization, DZUP RC would like to extend their sincerest gratitude for making RC Week 2014: Back Track a success.

9. Countdown for A Decade

And as the celebration closes, the preparations for DZUP RC’s 10th year will soon commence starting with the ongoing RC History, a coffee table book containing DZUP RC’s life blood. DZUP RC expects you to join them next year as they profess once again, “DZUP Radio Circle, the only org that goes on-air!”
