01 FEBRUARY CEREMONIAL OPENING. The 23rd anniversary celebration of UP-Mindanao began with the Ceremonial Opening held on 1 February at the Oblation Plaza. Chancellor Sylvia Concepcion, in her message, stated that UP Mindanao is now in a "state of maturity". She compared the present and the past for the measure of social capital that were accumulated, and challenged student organizations and staff to prepare for the 25th "silver" anniversary in 2020. The Dance Ensemble perfo...rmed the highly-spirited "Ritual Dance". The Placing of Solidarity Flags was led by the Chancellor together with University officials. Students followed by placing flaglets onto the ground of the Oblation Plaza while the Koro Kantahanay chorale sang the serenade. According to the anniversary committee spokesperson, "The flags signify diversity within the University of the Philippines Mindanao. Our leaders have the profound responsibility of taking the different units to greater heights while still remaining grounded. Thus we place the flags of various units in a secure post to withstand the great pressures of external forces and remain firm in their core mission and vision. The leadership, however, cannot do it alone. It needs a mix of dynamic individuals and groups ready to cooerate and participate in any challenge. We must not be spectators but active players in pushing forward for the development of UP Mindanao. By working together we can make meaningful output."
