Editor's Note
             “Vincit Qui Pati tur”

The above-mentioned Latin phrase has an English translation that says, “he conquers who endures.” Attributed to the Roman poet Persius, this remark says much about success as an offshoot of constant persistence and dedication.Read More..

MORE than the classroom-based lessons I have learned in my four years in college, my stay at the University has taught me an important message in life that is very much applicable once I step out of the walls of my alma mater.
As cliché and as common as it may sound, the lesson is simply not to take life too seriously. Read More..
     Untimely death of a relationship
  By: CAMILLE ANNE M. ARCILLA
A FRIEND once told me that in writing fiction, “death is the best subplot there is.” It sounds too tragic, but I must admit that I also find this remark applicable in real life.
Death, which is often associated with the end of all life forms, also connotes bidding farewell. When someone dies, that person says good bye to

THIS column crawls out of my mind’s corners hesitantly as I wonder how to begin to write the end. In my four years as a campus writer, I have come to realize that it is the end that is hardest to write. It is because in the end, the writer questi ons if it is worth to begin at all.
