Titans Week is something special in Enderun Colleges. Held from April 23 to 27, it is a whole five days of fun and companionship, games, sports, and competition.

President of Enderun Colleges, Dean Ed: “Get a life!”
As Dean Ed said in his remarks launching Titans Week at the Titan Hall gymnasium, “Break out, leave your old gang behind and make new friends. Try to make five great new friends this week, one each day. And get a life. Education doesn’t happen in the classroom alone. Education is in every activity, event and forum of this school and especially in Titan’s week. So get a life. Get a new life.”
Brix Otero, President of Student Government opens Titans Week
To the rousing cheers and screams, Brix Otero, President of the Student Government and Chiara Haluag, Vice President, opened Titan’s Week introducing the Enderun Pep Squad and recently organized Dance Group which gave an energetic cheer dance in their new Titan motif uniforms. They were later joined by the Student Government organizers and supervisors in an impromptu dance session. The Dance troupe, led by choreographer Ameena Athab, then invited individuals from the college to join them, including a number of faculty and employees.

Among the many varieties offered, try mango avocado!
A number of food stands were set up in the Titan Courtyard. One kiosk proposed their own recipe of homemade tacos with a choice of spreads: mango and chicken, chichironeta, and spiced longaniza. There were also stands with Teriyaki chicken, barbecued watermelon, big fish balls, mixed
fruit drinks at Mango Street, ice cream, and special brews of coffee.

The competition was ferocious but friendly with many body spills on the court especially in futsal and volleyball. Most were ordinary, fun-loving athletes, a few had played high school varsity, and some were former college varsity, which made for the excitement of the game. “I usually aim for power futsal, but I can warm up with volleyball,” says Daniel Edge. “I really look forward to Titans’ Week, that’s when I forget about the stress even just for a week.”
Girls played regularly in all sports, sometimes beating the guys!
It was heartening to see the bleachers packed!
The best part is being awarded all the medals. It makes Titans Week really worth it.
Enderun is perhaps unique as a college organizing a week of sports and competition and lots of fun and bonding. It is all in the spirit of Mark Twain who wrote over a hundred years ago: “Don’t let schooling interfere with your education.”
