DUMAGUETE CITY (PIA) – Negros Oriental State University (NORSU) marks its 108th Founder’s Day celebration with “Mr. & Ms. NORSU 2015 Pageant” on December 1 at the Macias Sports Center, Dumaguete City.
In a press launching held recently, the Federation of Student Government (FSG) presented the 12 pairs of candidates for the pageant coming from its various colleges.
With a theme, “The Position and Role of University in Mending Societal Setbacks,” the pageant takes on special meaning this year as it is the first time that each pair of candidates gets to choose an advocacy.
According to FSG consultant Dr. Dinno Depositorio of NORSU each pair is given a 3-minute video presentation and subsequently, a 3-minute speech to sell their advocacy.
The 12 candidates to compete for the Mr. & Ms. NORSU titles include from the Main Campus 1 and 2 (CAS, CEA, CAF, CNDPAHS, CIT, CCJE & CBA) and satellite campuses (Mabinay, Bais City, Guihulngan City, Siaton and Bayawan/Sta Catalina).
Whoever gets the crown the candidate’s chosen advocacy will be adapted by the (FSG) as one of the priority projects, said Depositario.
This year’s Mr & Ms. NORSU competition marks the first time in the pageant’s history that the coronation night will be held outside of the university campus.
