Company booths were set up and various activities planned for the summer-themed college week by the College of Computer Studies (CCS) of De La Salle University (DLSU) – Manila.
The college week dubbed as “CCS Week” ran from June 8 till June 12. CCS Week was held in the Henry Sy Sr. Grounds of DLSU Taft campus. The event was sponsored by several external partners such as Globe, Panther Gaming Gear, IBM, PCI, Manila Bulletin, etc. Company booths were set up alongside CCS organizations in the weeklong event to celebrate “emerging technologies and innovations,” according to Nicole Domingo, president of the CCS student government and one of the main organizers of CCS Week.
CCS organizations such as the La Salle Computer Society and Peer Tutors Society held their own booths and activities alongside company booths. This was to show to the Lasallian population the CCS experience, Domingo explained, further adding that she wished to show what a CCS student is capable of. These organizations held gaming booths in a “Chill Week” activity to de-stress students from academics. Raffles were also available during CCS Week. The company JBL had a raffle for their earphones and speaker while Panther Gaming Gear held a raffle for a chance to win one of their gaming chairs.
One of the highlights of CCS Week is MSI Gaming’s booth with Ranida Games wherein laptop terminals were set up and people could play Bayani, an indie Filipino fighting game developed by the latter company. Another notable booth was from the student organization Microsoft Student Community (MSC), where they showcased a VR Game that anyone could play should they wish.
Throughout the week, the various CCS organizations organized a diverse set of activities to pique students’ interests. Among these activities included a walk-in theater, a Family-Feud- like game, and a Guess That Song played in the Henry Sy Grounds. One activity done by the CCS Week organizers called “CCS-Fetti”, modeled after the Facebook livestreamed quiz game Confetti.
CCS Week formally ended with a culminating night held in Henry Sy Sr. Hall. A performance contest was held, and the raffle winners were announced on the same night. The culminating night doubled as a sendoff to the senior graduating batch of CCS, called the ID 115. They are expected to graduate by October 2019.
