LPU Cavite kickstarts the academic year with the Vision and Mission Week celebration. To welcome the international students, the International Affairs Office (IAO) conducted the Global Connections Game, the first of the series of games that will be conducted during the academic year. The Trivia Game is one of the international students’ development activities under the Global Connections program. It was first launched in August 2018 and was born out of a research that was conducted by the IAO which showed a need to create a platform where the local and international students can interact and engage with one another. The monthly game has been successful in bridging the gap between and among the local and international students. It fostered friendship and interactions in a fun and entertaining manner. The activity also helps promote awareness of and appreciation for cultural diversity within the University and has helped broaden the cultural horizon of local and international students alike.
This month’s game focused on general information and covered a wide range of questions, from astronomy to Philippine history. International students were mixed with students taking Foreign Service and Tourism program. Team Batibot emerged as the Champion, followed by Team Foreigngers and Team Hey.
The next Game will be held on September 2019 with the theme Pop Culture. - A. P. Pocaan
