2nd term here we go! However before I put my firsts from my 1st term to the past, I’ll tell you all something cool that we frosh experienced!
We all know that in every school the “Finals week” is something that we must worry about, I mean because the “Finals” is our last run for the term, so we really have to do everything good for it! And yes moving forward if you happen to pass by the De La Salle- College of St. Benilde, School of Design and Arts building, you will really see that it’s so…WHITE. Yes even on the inside! That is why we were really shocked when we saw that the SDA building became an art exhibit building! Okay sorry for the frosh fangirling for the artworks I saw(evil laugh).
Then now here you go these are only some of the exhibits, because I only took pictures of the ones on the 12th floor, but actually per floor there are a lot of different art exhibits, like on the 8th floor, of course some Barbie dolls and some design sketches because it’s a fashion design floor, next is the 5th floor, with all the theater plays with the Production design and Technical Theater people, and so much more!Those are some portraits/artworks outside the SDA Cafeteria/on your way to the cafeteria and student lounge. Those were made by i don’t know what course, and I think the pieces are made/sketched with charcoals. And the one in the middle is my favorite! Because everything seems so detailed about it. :)
Then now the artworks inside the SDA Cafeteria, yes inside so cute right? There’s a place for the student’s exhibits.“Junk’s Not Dead” is the title of their exhibit, and we really found it cool, because every junk were made into great pieces of art!
Then last one are the ones posted on the windows of the SDA Cafeteria.:)
Okay say anything you want about me fangirling with every pieces of art during the finals week, but yeah I really found it cooler than ever! Because only CSB-SDA can make the “Finals Week” fun! IT’S TOTALLY MORE FUN IN BENILDE!
it's more fun in benilde
Anonymous asked: hey eena! I'm going to submit my app and scholarship form for csb in a few days and the exam will be on sept. 1. Almost there! So I just want to ask, do I use the same envelope they provide when submitting the forms? and do I submit the scholarship requirements separately or do I include it in the envelope? haha I'm getting a little bit oc x3x thanks :D
As far as I know and remembered you need to provide another envelope for the scholarship requirements. :) And I think you must give that envelope together with your application form. :) Also good luck to you and see you soon! :)
Hi this is for all the anonymous people who asked me about the coverage of the Benilde Entrance Exam, and also for that 1 anonymous person who asked me about the SDA Grant, and also for that 1 anonymous person who asked me about scholarships.
Well first getting in to CSB(College of St. Benilde) is actually easy, this is not me being conceit, but yes the entrance exam is really easy, but still don’t forget to review for a few. :)
1. Entrance Exam- So yeah there’s no Science, the Math part is easy, there’s an English part, then as far as I remember there’s no Filipino part of the exam, and finally of course just like a normal entrance exam the lessons that you studied for your summer review are also there. :)
2. SDA Grant- I’m not sure if these things that I will say may help. Well first for your essay, BE YOURSELF, and of course discuss the things that you may do for the degree program you’re applying for, and how it will/may help you for the future in being extraordinary(this is really important I guess). Also for your essay consult or ask for the help of someone to check your everything about it(haha), like your English teacher or whoever. For the portfolio, choose for your best artwork/s(of course), and that best must really be related for the degree program you’re applying for!!! Or if you want of course first choose the artworks for the degree program you’re applying for, then mix something that is actually related to Art that you think may also be related for the degree program/s you’re applying for. Lastly I think you must add some certificates or whatevers just for formality. :)
3. Scholarships- CSB offers a lot of scholarships, no really yes they do(haha). So of course choose what’s best for you and apply for that scholarship right away! Because you never know maybe you’re lucky enough to be a Benildean Scholar, and I think it’s easier if you’ll apply right away for it. So to know more about those scholarships, JUST READ YOUR PROSPECTUS(I’m not angry with caps all, I just got a caps all syndrome sorry.). :)
Then to all who wants to be a Benildean(yes feeling like a pro here, lol kidding) good luck for your BEE(Benilde Entrance Exam), and finally be yourself while doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. Good luck and God bless you all!
P.S.: I’m enjoying my Frosh life so much right now. ☺♥
High school for me right now is like an alcoholic liquor or a beer for a drunk person, because I still got a lot of hangovers with it. Also right now I already entered in my life’s new kind of adventure(even though the rules and a lot of everything in CSB is like Seton), that’s why don’t hate your school if your first day will be on June 4, or 6 or any day of this week, because us we already had our first day last May 21!:))
Now moving on my first day in college was kind of weird, because I never thought that our block will really be a big happy family. First factor is because we are a mixed block, meaning we got 3 courses in our block, first is of course my course, Arts Management, the other one is Digital Filmmaking and the other one is the Dance Major. And if I will tell you my whole first day it will take ages! Because I got a lot of firsts that day, but all I know is I’m exhausted yet happy because of some weird reasons. Then another fact in our block we also have our irregular blockmates, 2 of them are music production people and the other one is an athlete. So before moving on here are some photos of my blockmates/our block.
Then in terms of our professors well yeah most of them I think are fun to be with inside the class, especially they’re “chiiiill.” okay nevermind. About our school of course it’s really beautiful in SDA, I mean the everything haha! For our 2nd week I think we became closer, and I knew a lot of things, like I crossed the streets of Taft alone(which is not safe, but I did my best for it), then I’ll just add this up, for my first Saturday in school we already had our first free-cut/cutting because our professor didn’t arrive, next is I got a lot of reasons to be happy with my block, because they’re really fun to be with and finally I knew that a lot of them are vain, so yeah hi FFM2!And now I’ll introduce my friends since the orientation.From your left to right: Rodz, Jean and Jam. :)
Right now all I can say is I know I will still gain more knowledge weird experiences and weird life in college, but I think right now I must enjoy everything about it first, especially we only got 2 terms to be a block section. That’s why I will also leave you right now with a video(and a clip/only a photo of our block) from some MMA students/the Call Me Maybe: Benilde Version(if the video is not visible just visit this link, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aGcTSivLwk&feature=youtu.be)! Just find me.:))
