BAYBAY CITY, Leyte - Rosal Cottage received the 2018 Best Dormitory award during the University Interdorm Student Body’s (UISB) Open House, themed “Akong Pinalanggang Puluy-anan,” that took place last February 15 and 16.

Mulberry Men’s Hall landed in the second spot while Gumamela Cottage got the third best dormitory award.

All dormitories and cottages were judged based on:

  • 40% cleanliness and orderliness (overall cleanliness and orderliness of the whole dormitory which shall include lawn area, sala, kitchen, television room, lobby, comfort rooms and the individual rooms);
  • 30% adherence to the theme, “Pinalangga Kong Puluy-anan”; and
  • 30% overall impact (how the decorations and the overall cleanliness and orderliness complement each other, and the activities and games held inside the dormitories).

Mr. Rey Martin L. Reoma (Department of Development Communication), Niño Daryll M. Bicoy (Department of Forest Science), Marwen A. Castañeda (University Students Services Office Guidance Counselor), Christie Cyrene T. Tauy (Head, Student Organization and Activities Division), and Kit Felian Tenio (University Supreme Student Council) judged the said competition.

UISB President Junrey Goles expressed his gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of the Open House.

“I commend the officers and our advisers for making the annual UISB Open House worth remembering. Not just as a culture but as a service to everyone who wants to see and experience what our homes offer. I'm so much blessed for being able to give service for the success of the event.”

During the opening ceremonies of the UISB Open House, VSU President Edgardo E. Tulin announced the construction of more dormitories for undergraduate, graduate and foreign students to better accommodate the growing population of the Viscan community. This is also in preparation for the approaching admission of freshmen college students.

UISB’s remaining major activities for this school year include the UISB Sportsfest and the UISB 2nd General Assembly.
