BRAFE Golf 12: One Big Shot for Education
October 2, 2017 marked the BRAFE GOLF 12, an annual golf tournament for the benefit of the Foundation for Sharing Lasallian Education (FSLE). This foundation aims to play golf for education since 2006 through the initiative of the benevolent Lasallian Brother, Br. Rafael "Brafe" Donato FSC (). This year's competition was held at the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club located at General Trias, Cavite. It was a successful tournament with 127 golfers who supported and joined the BRAFE core group to raise funds for the education of the FSLE scholars.

The registration started at 6:00 in the morning. Most of the golfers have registered already prior to the day of the competition, while some registered on the day itself. Upon arriving, they were welcomed at the main clubhouse where they dropped their tickets for the raffle and claimed their giveaways.

At around 1:20 in the afternoon, the golfers returned to the main clubhouse to have their lunch and prepare for the awarding ceremony. After the festive banquet, the program started with a prayer led by Br. Jun Estrellas FSC followed by the awarding of the winners of the raffle.

Afterwards, the head of the day's event, Mr. Roy Pena, gave a short message, followed by Mr. Albert Garcia giving another message and presenting the current beneficiaries of FSLE specifically BRAFE scholars. On stage, Br. Jun Estrellas FSC received the half a million donation from the BRAFE core group. This was followed by Mr. Arvin Mantuano's sharing of his experiences as a BRAFE scholar.

The program continued with the awarding of the major raffle prizes from the generous sponsors. Trophies and prizes were also granted to various divisions: Mens Division, Senior's Division, Super Seniors Division, Ladies Division and the Championship Division. The program ended with the singing of the Alma Mater Song.

In the end, everyone went home with a smile on their faces. The golfers had a great time playing the sport as well as helping those who deserve a Lasallian education. The core group and the scholars are truly grateful to those who made the event possible.


Attention: BSBP Scholars
Batangas Provincial Scholarship Program (BPSP) Scholars are required to attend the evaluation of 2nd semester, SY 2016-2017 academic performance on August 24, 2017, 8:00am at the Br. Henry Virgil Gymnasium.




Brothers League: Clash of the Legions
Bound by fate and united in mission, the legions kept their eyes on the prize from beginning up to the very end of the battle. Lasallian Partners had the time of their life at the fun day when the eight legions under the Brothers League went head to head to win the ultimate title and reign the community.

More than 500 were in attendance to support the inaugural assembly and pledge allegiance to their respective legions on July 31, 2017 at the SENTRUM.

The eight legions, namely, St. Benilde (Red - Extraordinary), St. Jaime (Violet - Exceptional), St. Mutien Marie (Dark Blue - Vigilant), St. Miguel (Orange - Simplicity), St. Solomon (Yellow - Passionate), St. Cirilo (Gray - Skilled), St. Marciano (Light Blue - Explorer), and St. Julian (Green - Incredible), are dubbed after De La Salle Brothers who are full-fledged saints. Each of the group is assigned a color, the saint's outstanding trait, and inspired by the strength of a popular super hero.

With the leadership of the appointed Legion Chief and the assistance of six wise Legion Council of Elders per group, the teams diligently vied for the top prize. Seven games were prepared which were patterned after well-known television programs. The competition was designed to tap the different skills of the legions, from intellectual, physical, to artistic and decision-making abilities.

In the end, the ultimate winner was the Legion of St. Benilde; second place - Legion of St. Mutien Marie; third place - Legion of St. Miguel; followed by the following legions: St. Jaime, St. Julian, St. Marciano, St. Solomon, and St. Cirilo.

The Brothers League originated from the concept of the De La Salle - College of St. Benilde's Brothers House, which was also adopted by other La Salle schools. It aims to emulate the saints' outstanding characteristics, foster camaraderie and collaboration, and discover untapped potentials.



Batch 2017: Driving What's Next, Moving Ahead
At the 29th Commencement Exercises of De La Salle Lipa on June 9, 2017, a total of 1,497 Lasallians were conferred their respective degrees or certificates.

The SENTRUM was packed with parents and well-wishers who were beaming with pride the entire event as they witnessed dreams unfold before their eyes.

The first session in the morning included the College of Education, Arts and Sciences; College of Information Technology and Engineering; and College of Nursing.

Engr. Aisa Alvarez Mijeno (DLSL Computer Engineering, Batch 2006), Co-Founder of the Sustainable Alternative Lighting Corporation (SALt) graced the morning graduation rites for the commencement address.

The young Lasallian alumna's empowering words reflected how driven and strong-willed start-up genius she is. Her advice to be a "fast learner, resilient, creative and resourceful," is a testament of the primary characteristics the millennials should be equipped with. After the training in college, the true battle begins and that "true success means all the battle scars you will earn," she pointed out. Likewise, success is "about finding meaning to your life," thus, "surrender yourselves to the power of possibilities. Have the courage and ambition above all to do something about your knowledge" for "you are the future."

Meanwhile, the second session included the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management; College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management; and College of Law.

Mr. Emmanuel Montenegro De Ocampo, Chairman of FILREMIT Corporation and Board of Director of the Foundation for Sharing Lasallian Education, shared his time and inspiring message at the conclusion of the graduation rites.

The full-blooded Lasallian entrepreneur generously imparted valuable tips as a successful businessman. Although he was a typical clueless graduate back then, he learned to conquer challenges on his own. "Always persevere, pray and network," was his top three guide to a fulfilling career. He wished he knew this basic formula after graduation but then the circumstances presented alternative opportunities, nonetheless. After receiving quality education from a top-notch school, he is still a firm believer that "God is the true teacher." 

After the insightful messages by the mentors, magna cum laude, Karla B. Alday (BS Industrial Engineering) and Kathren Kelly A. Bobadilla (BS Business Administration major in Marketing Management), spoke before their peers, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, respectively.

Their overwhelming emotions were apparent in their appearance and message. Ecstatic with their recent milestone, they only have deepest gratitude to the institution and faculty members who "brought out the best" in them. But despite their major scholastic accomplishment, they have apprehension of what is waiting for them outside the walls of the school. But after "surviving sleepless nights" and hurdling obstacles along the way with flying colors, they are ready to embark on a new journey with new challenges to face and overcome.

It had been quite a ride for these Lasallians after a worthwhile educational expedition. It is now time to reap the fruits of their labor. Below are the awardees of Batch 2017.

Batch 4 of Available IDs

Brigada Eskwela 2016
It has been a tradition for the De La Salle Lipa community members to participate in the annual outreach program, "Brigada Eskwela," to assist a neighboring elementary school in preparation for the opening of classes.

Volunteers, composed of 22 students and their leaders from the Integrated School and colleges, and 90 Lasallian Partners, led by the Community Involvement Officer, Arnel Dimaano, gathered on June 3, 2016 for the said event.

The group went to Sto. Toribio Elementary School, Lipa City, and went about their various tasks to make sure the school would be ready. Simple yet necessary chores such as tidying rooms and desks, covering books, and painting of classrooms - inside and out - made all the difference.

For several years now, DLSL has been an ardent participant of the "Brigada Eskwela" not only to aid nearby schools, but likewise, foster among the young Lasallians and Partners the spirit of volunteerism.

Brafe 10 Golf Tournament 2015
"I thank God for having given you to me as my classmates and friends and I hope and pray that our camaraderie will not falter; and that we are able to support one another especially at this stage of our life."

This message from our beloved Bro. Rafael "BRAFE" Donato FSC(+), who inspired every businessman and golfer to support the Brafe10 Golf Tournament for the benefit of the Foundation for Sharing Lasallian Education (FSLE). This legacy enables young FSLE students to acquire an invaluable four year college education. The collective effort of the supporters represents a blessing and most welcomed opportunity that will no doubt change the lives of the scholars and their families.

The tournament took place in Mt. Malarayat Golf and Country Club, Lipa City. The registration started at 6:00 am and a gun was shot at exactly 7:45 am which signalled the official start of the Golf Tournament. Golfers were able to experience the thrill of the tournament, and at the same time, be of great help to the scholars. The awarding ceremony happened at 3:00 pm and showcased the talents and skills of the top golfers in the tournament.

All the proceeds of the said golf tournament will be for the benefit of the FSLE foundation. This year, FSLE received nine hundred fifty thousand pesos (Php 950, 000) which was received via check by Dr. Alice Botardo, the Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research representing Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D.Min, and Mr. Francis Laurel, FSLE Vice President. In order to reach the goal of donating one million, Mr. Garcia sold sixteen gallons of paint to which the earning will be added to the fund. Also, Mr. Laurel will be shouldering the rest in case the paint won’t sell enough.

The golf tournament was a success and will be able to send four FSLE college scholars.





Biology Students, Faculty Score Grants in PSM Convention
Mariott Hotel, Manila - On July 17, three groups of 4th year BS Biology students, and a member of the Bio-Science faculty, were awarded the Thesis Subsidy Grant (TSG) and Thesis Reproduction Grant (TRG) during the 44th Philippine Society for Microbiology (PSM) Annual Convention.

A total of four groups received the TSG for this year, three groups from DLSL BS Biology, and one from UST BS Microbiology. Each group received PHP 10,000 to help in the completion of their undergraduate theses.

The theses being conducted by the BS Biology students cover the topics of bioremediation and biodiversity of microbial organisms. Christian Andrew Feliciano and Joseph Paulo Silva are the proponents of the research, "Selection of suitable biofilm carrier for Alcaligenes faecalis", Marian Jean Panganiban and Joan Paula Mercado for "Isolation and identification of possible bacterial bioremediators from the marine sediments along the Batangas Bay, Mabini, Batangas affected by heavy metals," and Mart Almer Medina, Emmanuel Hernandez, Kristiane Polido, Cloyd Gulla, and  Exequiel Caimbon, for "Isolation, characterization, identification, and evaluation of antimicrobial activity of filamentous bacteria (Actinomycetes) present in the soil of Mt. Maculot and Mt. Malarayat - A comparative study".

The TRG that was awarded to Mr. Edmerson B. Geronimo amounting to PHP 7,500 for his masters thesis, titled, "Development of copper-resistant biofilm from bacteria isolated from Mogpog, Marinduque for the biosorption of copper".

The recipients of the theses grants are determined by a panel of leading microbiologists and academicians in the country.  The entries submitted to PSM were evaluated based on having microbiology as the main focus, quality of research, significance of the topic, and the content of the paper.

The TSG is awarded every year to on-going undergraduate, masters, and Doctor of Philosophy theses, while the TRG is to recognize outstanding accomplished theses about microbiology.




Boosting DLSL Brand Image
Administrators and selected faculty and staff had an engaging afternoon on the topic of branding last 24 July 2015 at the Function Room of the newly built CBEAM Building.  Spearheaded by the Human Resources Department (HRD) in partnership with the Marketing Communications Department (MCD), the "Creating DLSL Brand Image Seminar" aims to increase the awareness of DLSL community on the importance of branding and to strengthen the roles of the participants as ambassadors and marketers of the school.

The learning session was facilitated by the Center for Institutional Communications Director of De La Salle - College of St. Benilde (DLS-CSB), Mr. Adie Pena.  With an extensive experience in the advertising industry, he is also currently a member of the Editorial Consultant of De La Salle Philippines and a Professional Screener of the Advertising Standards Council.  Participants were given an overview on the concept of branding and how DLS-CSB applied such concepts in their integrated marketing communications.  DLS-CSB "stories", as Mr. Pena reiterated, are fruits of sustaining the brand image of the institution.  Branding also plays a major role in handling crisis and in leading the whole organization to its mission.

Benilde's "stories" are examples that can be adopted by the DLSL community on their respective projects.  As a brand, the whole organization is reminded that they should extend efforts to work in collaboration with other departments.  "Brand is your strategy … your calls to action … your customer service … the whole array of communication tools … your people … your facilities … your logo and visuals, too."






Brigada Eskwela 2015 of DLSL
More than an annual tradition, it is the sense of community that prevails among the Lasallians of De La Salle Lipa that urge them to partake in this noble mission of 'Brigada Eskwela.'

In fact, the preparation prior to school opening sent a throng of members of the DLSL community to various neighboring elementary schools to contribute in whatever form they can to make sure the schools are all set for the commencement of School Year 2015-2016.

Participants from the Vice Chancellor for Mission Office, College of Education, Arts and Sciences, General Services Department, Information Communications Technology Center, Community Involvement Office, Student Services, and the Student Coordinating Board, garnered 36 volunteers on May 19, 2015.

The group's one-day community service was focused at Malitlit - Anangi Elementary School where they repainted the classrooms, chairs, and building, covered books, redecorated the bulletin boards, and repaired whatever they could for the improvement of the schools appearance to once again uplift the spirits of the incoming pupils.

Aside from the services of the Lasallians, they also donated paint and other materials and supplements for repair and maintenance of other schools, namely, Makina Primary School, San Guillermo Elementary School, Kayumanggi Elementary School, Bolbok Elementary School and Parang Elementary School, Verde Island.




DLSL Revamps Tagline
Bolder, definitive and now a distinguished catchphrase, De La Salle Lipa's tagline "great beginnings start here . . ." had a makeover.

DLSL relaunched today, July 2, 2015 the edgier look of the tagline, an event that was witnessed by administrators and participated in virtually by the members of the community by sharing the new look in social media, dubbed #GreenDot.

From its former version which ended in ellipses, the new look emphatically concludes in a bold dot - unusually bigger to contain and showcase the various forms, locations, and areas where a member of the community could acquire learning in all means possible, across all channels, thus, the "Green Dot."

Looking back in 2011, at the time when the institution was conceptualizing a new tagline that will ultimately communicate the sincere intention of honing and producing able Lasallian students, a multi-sector Focus Group Discussion was held. And "Great Beginnings Start Here." was the end result of revisiting and re-affirming DLSL's commitment to its stakeholders.

ORP sends deans, director to international conferences
Being the leaders of the college, deans were sent to international conferences sponsored by the Office of Research and Publication.

Dean Joy Zapata of the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management (CIHTM) along with Research Director Gina Dimaano attended the Joint Conference on Sustainable Tourism and Hospitality in Asia and Conference on Social Responsibility in Asia. The said conference was held in Hiroshima, Japan last October 29-31. Chair of the Tourism Department, Andrenelyn Varona presented her paper "Understanding Local Residents Perceptions Towards Tourism Development and Sustainability of San Juan, Batangas."

Dean Tessie Palma of the College of Education Arts and Sciences participated in the UNESCO-APEID Conference 2014 held in Bangkok, Thailand last October 29-31.

Dean Lani Garachico accompanied two faculty members of the College of Business Economics Accountancy and Management (CBEAM) to the Third International Conference on Entrepreneurship and Business Management (ICEBM) held in Penang Malaysia, November 6-7.

Dr. Edgar Allan Castro, Chair of the Business Entrepreneurship and Management Technology (BEM) presented his paper "Behavioral Intent towards Socio-Environment and Financial Economic Wellness of Freshmen and Senior Students of Business Programs of an HEI in the Philippines" in ICBM. Ms.Wilfreda Dimaano, faculty member of CBEAM was also present during the third ICBM where she shared her paper "Practicum Performance of Financial Management Students as Perceived by the Industry Partners."

With the attendance of the deans to different international conferences, it is expected that the research outputs of their respective colleges will increase since they are the ones to communicate to the teachers what the atmosphere is like in presenting a paper to an international audience.





BRAFE's Mission on its 9th Year
For a greater purpose in playing and golfing, a free Lasallian education became the golden trophy where the A Game was achieved by the golfers who participated in the 9th BRAFE Golf Tournament held at Mt. Malarayat Golf and Country Club, Oct. 6.

The BRAFE Golf Tournament is an annual event where professional and amateur golfers around the country assemble in a friendly and charitable competition which aims to raise funds to provide free Lasallian education for the deserving college students in De La Salle Lipa.

Br. Joaquin Kenneth Martinez FSC, D. Min., President and Chancellor of De La Salle Lipa started the tournament by a Ceremonial Toss. The said tournament had only one shot gun which ran from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm. After the games, winners were recognized and received trophies and gifts from the organizer.

Albert Garcia, head of the BRAFE Golf Core Group formally endorsed a check amounting to PHP 1,000,000.00 to the FSLE group and accepted by Br. Kenneth as the result of the said golf tournament which basically came from the registration and donations of participant-golfers.

As of this year, FSLE has 30 scholars coming from engineering, business management, accountancy, arts and sciences programs. These scholars are enjoying 100% free tuition and miscellaneous fees as managed and supervised by the Lasallian Assistance Management Program (LAMP).

Henson Ola, LAMP Manager, accompanied the scholars present during the awarding ceremony of the said tournament and presented their gratitude to the crowd of golfers. FSLE alumni Benny Mart Hiwatig, Joe Andrew Villanueva, and Fatima Rose Fajilan who were the beneficiaries of BRAFE Golf Tournaments were also present to share their current career status.

Approaching into a decade next year, Foundation for Sharing Lasallian Education (FSLE) and BRAFE Golf Core Group believe that there will be more golfers to participate in the tournament and become a part of the late Br. Rafe Donato FSCs advocacy on Golfing for Education.

It is an annual celebration and formal gathering of different schools and open to all professionals and academic institutions offering programs in hospitality management and culinary arts. It has the goal of providing new opportunities to boost the confidence along with talents and uniqueness of young hoteliers and restaurateurs by means of sharing the Lasallian mission of Teaching Minds, Touching Hearts and Transforming Lives. The event aims also to forge partnership with the participating schools, form camaraderie among participants and organizers, and serve as an avenue to help the chosen beneficiary, Herencia De La Salle. 

The event's theme BAFBEX 4D: Discover. Define. Deliver. Diversify with the tag line "Working beyond All Limits" gives a new, bold, unique and exciting aura to the event itself. It gives emphasis to the true meaning of discovering and enhancing talents in a way that an individual lets himself explore and enjoy. The 4D's withhold the thought to discover talents, define worth, deliver thoughts and diversify value; all these stands together side by side to promote the unity and importance of the hardships and learning process acquired by each individual. Uniqueness, creativity and courage to take on new challenges were the idea of this whole event, also to make the participants stand out based on who they are, what they've learned and what they believed in. Though the event was meant and known as a competition, the organizers intended for "BAFBEX 4D not only to challenge what you can do more but rather a chance of experiencing on what you can become."

The theme was the fruit of all the fascinating ideas and suggestions of all the organizers of the event. This had not only challenged their abilities but also improved the way they handle difficulties and challenges. Throughout the event it was not only the participants who carried with them the thought of working beyond all limits, the organizers too had been able to think out of the box and explore new and extraordinary things. This would not be possible without the support of their college, the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management and the guidance of their adviser who had been with them throughout the journey. He had inspired each and every one to create a new image and boost their confidence which had been their inspiration to make this event successful.

With the new theme introduced as BAFBEX 4D, different schools from Regions IV, V and NCR participated in the said event. Seven schools from the high school division and ten schools from the college division gathered to claim the title as the over-all champion for this years BAFBEX. It was for the very first time that BAFBEX was in partnership with one of the largest companies of consumer food and beverage in the Philippines, the Universal Robina Corporation. This had allowed the event to produce new set of exciting and challenging competitions divided into three categories, high school, college and professional divisions. The competition for the high school division was Quake to Cake: Color it Up and Feature Writing; for the college division, Mocktail Punch, Best Appetizing Centerpiece, Quiz Bowl, Innovative Street Food Challenge and Recipe Writing; and lastly, for the professional division, cooking demonstration. Although there were no special performances from artists, these competitions spiced up and paved a way to give honor to the institutions as the organizers made it possible to come up with a modern yet innovative look of the occasion.

Dalubhasaan ng Lungsod ng San Pablo stood out among the participating schools as they proudly proved to be the best by being the Over-all Champion. This had also been witnessed by the runners-up, Unibersidad De Sta. Isabel and Colegio De Santo Cristo De Burgos. 

The organizers received different compliments from hospitality practitioners who joined the said event and showed their willingness to participate again in the next BAFBEX. This kind of events will still continue to prosper, enhance and grow, proving that being in the industry promises great and vast opportunities to those who know its value and worth.

BS ECE studes win in 9th SWEEP Awards
"Technology in Nation-Building," - this year's theme for the 9th SWEEP (Smart Wireless Engineering Education Program) Innovation and Excellence Award, relates to the winning entry of the BS ECE students Neil Joseph B. Solis, Kevin Michael F. Bautista, and Nico Ayelle C. Maralit.

The team's android application, titled "S.M.A.R.T." or "System Market Application for Real-Time Trading," was designed to promote convenience in doing one's groceries. Through "S.M.A.R.T." application, items to be purchased may be selected and paid using the mobile phone, and pick them up later at the supermarket. This revolutionary application got De La Salle Lipa's team the 2nd runner-up title.

Likewise, the group won the Smart Developer Award for Best Android Mobile Application.

The winning team was accompanied by their mentor, Engr. Robert G. de Luna, De La Salle Lipa SWEEP Coordinator, at the awarding ceremony on February 14, 2013 at Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City.

Aside from S.M.A.R.T., another entry from DLSL made it as national finalist. The "Automatic Detection of Traffic Density" by Mark Joseph Balines, Dario Bolor, Erika Canubas, Bon Joey Ladislao, and Lawrence Villapando was one of the top ten entries. This application enables one to view in real-time the traffic condition in a specific location through image processing or text message (for mobile units without image processing application).
