Love wins in DLSMHSI  

The Institutional Student Council in collaboration with the Student Development and Activities Department marked February 14, 2020 with Animo Presents Feb-Ibig, a day full of sweet treats and fun activities for students and faculty.

Color filled the campus as students were allowed to wear color-coded shirts based on their relationship status during that day. Student organizations set-up booths at the Lourdes E. Campos, MD Building lobby to sell merchandise and to serenade the crowd with love songs. Among the performing bands were 21 Gauge of College of Medical Laboratory Science and Euphoria of Special Health Sciences Senior High School.

Students and faculty members posed in the photobooth, which captured their smiles and cheers. Chocolates were also given to make the day sweeter.

The Student Discipline and Security Department under The Student Affairs also hosted Take What You Need And Give What You Can, an opportunity for the students to express their emotions through sharing their encouraging or motivating words, to boost their emotional stability in facing daily challenges and to celebrate the month of love through student engagement. A freedom wall was set-up at the Lourdes E. Campos, MD Building lobby on February 14, 2020. Students were able to write in the wall to express themselves and respond to each other by sharing pieces of advice or words of encouragement.
