Cleanup Day Comes to QCU

Sept. 19 – In participation with the World Cleanup Day 2022, the QCU Extension Management Office conducted a QCU Cleanup Day under the Malasakit Program of QCU SMILE Extension. Despite the bad weather condition due to Habagat, student participants from different organizations carry on with the task at the university grounds.

SMILE is an overarching program of QCU Extension, an acronym for Simula, Malasakit, Iangat, Lingap, at Eksperto. The university wide Clean Up Day falls under the “Malasakit” program which is to care for the environment.

Mr. Lenard Bien, the OIC of the Extension Management Office, was very happy about the success of the said event. He added that the aim of the event is to improve the civic consciousness of the students in terms of a clean and healthy environment and increase their community engagement.

“You have a responsibility not only on your university but also on your surrounding community”, Mr. Bien said. Moreover, he said that this is the first activity of the school patterned on an international event. Mr. Bien also extended thanks to Dr. Therisita V. Atienza, the University President, for her support of the said event.

Students who participated in the event were very happy that they were able to participate in an event like this. Some were a bit sad for not being able to go and help in the Brgy. Bagbag where the event is supposed to take place. Yet, this doesn’t left them with regret since they were able to help the staff, as well as to maintain cleanliness in the university.

Many students showed enthusiasm despite the cold rainy weather and looked forward to more community service activities that will be held by our university. Participants also encourage their fellow students to engage and participate in the future projects of the Extension Management Office.
