By Danielle Anne Delos Santos MINDANAO STATE UNIVERSITY – GENERAL SANTOS CITY – Today the university takes a big leap towards real life by showcasing the world of social sciences and humanities in an open exhibit. The exhibit’s objective is to open the eyes of the students the realities of their chosen field and their role in the society as the College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH) opens its college week Monday, July 16. College students’ organization president Princess Lei Lacap said this is the first time the college opened an exhibit by and for the students. “For us students I believe this is fantastic. I did not expect this to be the outcome. The six booths are really artful and expressive,” Lacap said. “I have observed that the students in the different departments are isolated. Here, we tried to connect the dots so they can find themselves and their fields actually interrelated,” Lacap said. The Political Science Department designed an interactive exhibit combining the fun and vigilance in social media. Students and bystanders can write their comments with the “Facebook” site in a piece of white paper that looks like the site’s home page inside the booth. At the other corner is a trivia on world’s political tidbits. For the onlookers to interact with the booth, a graffiti board was also provided for them. The departments of English, Filipino, History, Islamic Studies, Political Science and Sociology all displayed the uniqueness and distinctiveness of their fields. Colorful backdrops were placed, brain-nourishing facts and information were posted, eye – catching designs were hanged to attract viewers. Most importantly, each booth distinguishes itself from other fields. The English Department highlighted linguistics, its relevance in the society and some of the world’s renowned writers and poets including Filipino writers. The AB- Filipino students assert in their exhibit that the Filipino language is the symbol of the nation and the Filipino culture. History depicted the Filipino native history and cultural heritage by using nipa to accentuate their concept. The booth showed information about the history of the country and pictures of students and their different activities. The Islamic Studies presented a colorful booth showcasing the Philippines’ 13 Muslim tribes. One could see in the booth that indeed Mindanao is home to the Filipino Muslims. The Sociology Department awed viewers with their orange motif signifying a rich society of co-existing multi-cultures. With the bright colors giving life to the booth, significant facts and photos related to sociology were posted with the theme “Unity in Diversity”. Dean Precillano Campado said the college showed its diverse nature as a strong foundation of intelligence and artistry of the students.*****
