Senior High
preregistration set Feb. 5-6

The Silliman University Senior High Department will deploy a team to facilitate onsite pre-registration, Feb. 5-6, and Feb. 12-13, to accommodate students visiting the campus this month, its press release said.

Desks with computers will be stationed in front of the Senior High office at the Katipunan Hall, to assist families and siblings of honor students who have expressed interest to be on campus early. It is also around this period in February, especially on days to Valentine's and Honors Day, when there is an increase in the number of groups that request for a campus tour, the press release said.

Silliman has also made available on online pre-registration system for those who are outside Dumaguete. Students can reserve a slot in the Senior High program without coming to the Silliman campus as the information is available at www.su.edu.ph/seniorhigh .

Meanwhile, Silliman launched recently the Presbyterian Mission Garden, a landmark that honors the Presbyterian legacy behind the founding and continuing development of the university.

The formal unveiling was made in the presence of 60 members from 10 countries of the Presbyterian Church USA, who are wrapping up the Asia and the Pacific Mission Co-Worker Regional Gathering, held in the province. It took place during the delegation's "Silliman Day", a symbolic retracing of roots that included a campus tour, a service at the SU Church, and a reception on campus, the press release said.

Located in front of the historic Katipunan Hall, the Garden features the “Three Rocks” that symbolize the three Presbyterian legacies of “Teach”, “Preach”, and “Heal”, that define and sustain Silliman education, the press release added.

With the University founded by Presbyterian missionaries in 1901, the Garden is the only landmark to date on the Silliman campus dedicated to the many Presbyterian missionaries and supporters who had made SU one of the premier universities in the Philippines.

The construction of the Presbyterian Mission Garden was made possible with funding from Silliman alumnus Rolando and wife, Helga Vogt Magdamo. Both are long-time members of St. John's Presbyterian Church in Reno, Nevada, USA, and are also sponsoring the installation of a carillon music system in campus, the press release added.*
