Hayeeee everyone! I know, I know... that it's been a while since my last blog post. I've been extra busy with life happenings, and side biz but still, wishing and cheering that may we all have an Awesome Year ahead! Allow me to start this year's post with Bang! As STI's Talent Search Finals are on! 

STI Fosters Student Development Through Holistic Education

Shaping the youth goes beyond classroom learning as academic institutions now offer a wide array of extra-curricular activities to help build character and better prepare students for the real world. As one of the country’s biggest educational institutions, STI has also adopted this mindset as they apply a holistic education approach within its Enrollment to Employment (E2E) System.

With its dedication to produce well-balanced and highly talented graduates, STI has developed specialized extra-curricular programs that allow students to hone and exhibit their talents inside and outside of their respective courses.

One of its student development programs is its long-running STI Talent Search which for School Year 2022-2023 has now returned to its grand physical format. Back from a brief pause during the pandemic, the event showcases the talents and fosters collaboration of its students nationwide.

Students from STI campuses in different parts of the country gathered in a whole-day celebration of talents, skills, and achievements that upholds STI’s thrust towards excellence on January 13, 2023, at the Star City and Aliw Theater in Pasay City, Metro Manila.  

Several competitions were held simultaneously at the Aliw Theater and Star City featuring the finest student musicians, dancers, heartthrobs, and darlings to compete in this year's Singing Idol (solo singing competition), Battle of the Bands (band competition), Hataw Sayaw (dance competition), and the much-awaited Search for Mr. and Ms. STI 2022.

The STI Talent Search is only one of the student programs lined-up for the school year as the institution prepares to welcome the upcoming Second Semester with more exciting and network-wide educational activities all geared towards holistic development.

My thoughts/review about Lil Giants: Honestly, this group is my second fave! charot on the side! Naitawid nila ang theme. Pasok na pasok sa 39ish Anniversary ang choice of songs. yes, lakas makabagets!  Neat din ang costume. Actually naenjoy ko ang performance nila talaga pero ayoko aminin at mahahalata ang age hahahaha :P

STIers get to enjoy the entire theme park for one whole day, plus, performances from celebrity guests were lined up too.

Oh, diba ang saya? I'm sure STIers had a fun-filled day talaga as they celebrate na din their 39th year anniversary! I know because I was there too! Thank You STI College for having us!

For almost 40 remarkable years of developing students’ potential through academic and extra-curricular activities, STI has always been innovative in providing our students with strong learning experiences to become well-rounded individuals, said Aisa Hipolito, STI Vice President for Academics.

Among the activities for the 2nd Semester are Tagisan ng Talino and Tagisan ng Sining which include academic competitions like Think Quest (team quiz bee), CodeFest (mobile app development), Mix n’ Flair (flair bartending), Travelogue (tour guiding), Chef Xpress (cooking competition), Shutter’s Best (photography), and Director’s Cut (video making), among others.
