As the end of the semester nears its end, students of the University of the Philippines, Los Banos, comes face to face with their most difficult challenges as students. Like Charles Darwin’s Survival of the fittest, college students are tested with not only their academic knowledge but also their life skills and abilities to cope with tons of workload and stress. Students at an alarming rate are being sent to the university infirmary for sicknesses due to sleep deprivation and palpitations from excess caffeine consumption. With all the papers students have to do and exams they have to study for, the 24 hours we were given in a day is definitely not enough.
TOP 10 THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM TAKING DEVC 30, TWICE!
AND WHY I DON’T REGRET IT.
DEVCOM 30 IS A FUN SUBJECT. Trust me. Anyone who’s anyone, who has taken the subject, would tell you how fun, interactive and engaging the subject is. The broadcasting concepts, learning about the history and inventions that had lead to it and actually being able to manipulate the console and broadcast is a one kind exposure, development communication students are privileged to have experienced. Lucky enough for me, (Don’t ask why) I was blessed enough to actually take the subject twice, study for the same concepts twice and broadcast double times the fun and actually appreciate and absorb every lesson, detail that I have encountered. Not only that, I was also blessed to have taken the subject twice from the same professor, Sir Mark Chico.
I have always thought that I wouldn’t be able to have enough confidence to be featured on TV or any broadcast platform, but here I am having broadcasted 4 times and survived it.
PAK! PAK! GANERN?
