UPCAAFI President Vicente Benito Jr. delivered a message to the UPCA Class of 2023 on the UPCA College Recognition Rites held last July 30, 2023.
My best and warmest felicitations to all of you! You are a product of years of hard work and fertile knowledge. Use this as the impetus to carry you through the challenges you will meet. If you pursue a career in Architecture then carry on the baton of freshness, creativity, originality, novelty, distinctiveness, and innovation. Treat each project as a clean sheet of paper. Your only limitation is how far your mind can bring you forward. Dwell on things that can inspire…move your design spirit to where it can move freely, independently and creatively. Listen to your calling. Design is a big responsibility. Let yours impact the world positively!
…move your design spirit to where it can move freely, independently and creatively.
We, the University of the Philippines College of Architecture Alumni Foundation, Inc. (UPCAAFI), are overjoyed to welcome you as our new members! We are here to give assistance to the College and the Alumni. Along with all of you, we will now be partners in elevating our role in the Architecture Community. Let us help one another and let us flourish in this wonderful industry.
Remember also to seek the guidance and wisdom of our Heavenly Father. God is good and faithful and He will answer your call when you need Him!
Carpe Diem, graduates! Seize the day…seize the moment…seize the opportunity. If you don’t, it will be passed on to somebody else.
Let us continue to move forward!
Godspeed to all of you!
Vicente R. Benito, Jr.
