STI Begins Countdown to 30th Anniversary

EVENTS
SEPTEMBER 3, 2012

 

 

More than 20,000 students from STI Campuses in different parts of the country gathered in a whole-day celebration at the Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna on August 31, 2012 as STI marked its 29th Anniversary. With the theme "XXIX: Ready for Thirty," STI kicked off a year-round celebration with explosive activities and events that sparked the runway toward its much-anticipated 30th Anniversary in 2013.

 


Exceptional skills and talents were showcased in big hit talent competitions which were simultaneously held in Enchanted Kingdom's Enchanting Events Place and Eldar's Tent to accommodate the astounding number of students who came from various key cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.


STI's homegrown music talents took the stage at Eldar's Tent for this year's National Level Battle of the Bands and STI Idol Solo Singing Competition. This year's Battle of the Bands Champion, STI College – Novaliches' Kastigo, rocked the house down with their impressive performance. STI Idol 2009 Grand National Winner Charmaine Nadado from STI College – Las Piñas grabbed the top spot once more in this year's STI Idol Solo Singing Competition.
