Enderun Welcomes New Batch of Titans, Albeit Digitally
Enderun Colleges officially welcomed its new students through a virtual orientation last August 7 and 8, 2020. Being a first of its kind, Enderun arranged an exciting lineup of activities and gestures to the new batch to kick off the academic year.
Enderun prides itself for its ability to bridge the gap between the digital world and the real world. The educational institution’s approach to virtual delivery mode of classes has long been embraced by the learning community. Guided by an online learning framework called, “Enderun Online,” the virtual advisory mode has developed as an integral part of the class sessions even before the regulated pure online teaching.
“Online learning is here to stay forever, even after COVID-19. While we’re here, try to excel in this new mode of learning. You advanced to college because you want a lifetime edge. Gain that edge at Enderun by learning out of the envelope. Make your Enderun learning experience not a duty but an adventure,” shared by Enderun Colleges President Edgardo Rodriguez to the incoming freshmen during his welcome speech.
During the virtual orientation, new students got a chance to respectively attend the inspirational talks of their department head. They also had the opportunity to showcase their prepared Titan Cheer and celebrated the event with interactive fun and games that kept the activity more fun and exciting.
As a warm treat, the new batch of Titans were individually sent complimentary packed lunches to their homes courtesy of Conti’s Bakeshop. Also delivered were the special Enderun Welcome Kits which consist of the Enderun Online Framework and S.A.F.E. (Sanitized, Accountable, Forward-Thinking, Environment) Initiative note, Enderun cap and shirt, a notepad, reusable cloth mask, and writing pen.
To add a special flair to the first virtual student orientation, Enderun organized an unboxing contest where incoming freshmen were challenged to creatively come up with a video presenting their receipt of Enderun Welcome Kits. Using the hashtags #EnderunVirtualOrientation2020 and #TitansinVirtualReality, the new students have uniquely filmed their own videos of the unboxing challenge. Winners were announced toward the end of the program namely Phoebe Gamboa and Sophia Uy.
Enderun is still open to accept late enrollees for continuing and new students until September 5, 2020. All classes on Enderun Online are recorded to give late enrollees an opportunity to catch up on course content during the first few weeks of school.
