University of Batangas holds the 18th President’s Cup

With the aim to foster camaraderie and rapport among departments, University of Batangas
annually holds the President’s Cup. This is also a way to choose possible representatives for
future inter-school competitions.

Last September 18-21, 2018, UB held its 18th President’s Cup, with the theme, “Celebrating a
Culture of Excellence and Oneness”.

Eleven competing departments, ten academic and cultural competitions to triumph over, one
Cup to vie for, several competitions, under two categories were held during the week.
Academic competitions include Debate, Extemporaneous Speech, Photo Interpretation,
Malayang Pagtula, Debate, and Quiz Bee while Cultural Competitions include Modern Dance,
Dance Sport, Group A Capella, Cosplay and Mr. and Ms. President’s Cup.

College of Engineering was hailed as Champion for both Academic and Cultural competitions.
Overall, College of Arts and Sciences placed third, while the Senior High School Department
placed second. And College of Engineering definitely had a great comeback after a break from
the 3-peat championship three years ago; the college is bringing home again the most-sought-
after cup.

The spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie reigned throughout. Everyone showed passion for
excellence, and that defined success.
