[FIA]* plans for FACT 2016!


Hey, y’all!

It’s that time of year again. We’re going to Urbana-Champaign and coming together with our fellow Filipino groups.

At this moment, the form┬áto go with [FIA]* is closed, but if you can drive, please contact Marc Bernabe and Chris Vinzons at fia.vpexternal@gmail.com. Deadline for payment is October 28th (Friday). You can venmo us at @FIA-UIC or pay in cash to our treasurer, Nathan Salvador, or our VPE’s, Marc Bernabe or Chris Vinzons. The amount is $35.

But just because you completed the form to go with [FIA]* doesn’t mean that you’re all set to go to FACT. Be sure to register for workshops and research which workshops you’re interested in doing. This year, our very own advisor, Jeff Alton, is holding a workshop called “Am I Filipino Enough?”. Also, our former president, JR Ellasos, reminds us of the impact of social media in his workshop “Mayroon ba kayong Snapchat?: Social Media vs. Society”.

Every year, [FIA]* cultural performs at the variety show. Sometimes, FIA’liwan performs the American national anthem. Unfortunately, we were not chosen to be a part of it this year. But still come out and support your fellow Filipino organizations as they perform dances that reflect FACT’s theme, “FUSE: For Us and Everyone”.

Finally, be sure to support [FIA]* Modern at Canopy that night. Dress to impress and be ready to chant your heart out. Don’t know the chant? Learn it from our very own Mr. President, Eugene Villamater.

I hope to see you all at FACT!
