We started out as two blocks in first year.  Over the years we’ve grown, especially one time when they seemingly opened the floodgates and dozens of shiftees and transferees were admitted to our department.

Now, we number to more or less fifty in the batch, possibly the biggest batch the Journalism Department of UP-CMC has ever had.  We’re a brady bunch of different personalities and that’s what makes us all unique.  There are blacks, there are whites, but there are likewise colorful personalities in between.  =)

We had our batch picture taking a few weeks back, and it was an opportunity for us to bond once more as one whole batch.  Of course, we ran into some problems because of our number, but just like always, we were able to manage.

I’m gonna miss all these happy and funny people once we graduate.  And I know it’s a bit harder since we’re too many!  Those smiles and laughter would be so hard to erase from my memory.  They’ll be forever etched there.  Let’s go Journ Seniors!  For more senti moments.  =))  How I wish we could all hang out in Drew’s.  But then we’d have to rent the place to ourselves if ever.  Hehehe.

And of course, the obligatory jump shots.

Yours truly’s shining moment that day (when K.Lo was unable to walk due to a sprained ankle.  Of course she can’t miss the batch pic!  So the boys had to carry her around.  Hehe):

MassComm peeps are luuuve.  They’re the noisiest, funniest, coolest, rowdiest, smartest, brightest, most talented people I know.

This is us a year ago (with a lot of absent people):

    Excellent website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any
    message boards that cover the same topics discussed here?

    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other
    experienced people that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Bless you!
