LPUB-HUSE Cultural Exchange Experience in the Philippines
Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas (LPU-B) officials, faculty and students warmly welcomed the delegation of thirty-one (31) members from Hunan University of Science and Engineering (HUSE), China. The delegates stayed in the university from August 28, 2018 to September 1, 2018, where they enjoyed some fun-filled and exciting Filipino games and cultural activities.
HUSE delegates were given a tour to LPU-B campuses namely Lyceum International Maritime Academy, LPU-B Riverside, and main campus. A program was conducted with some cultural performances and presentations comprising of song and dance, and a Kung Fu exhibition from the delegates of HUSE, and a rendition of a classic Filipino folk song, and dance from the Lyceum Vocal Harmonics, and the Lahing Batangan Dance Troupe, respectively. Certainly, such display of talents and abilities has strengthened the cultural understanding and diplomacy among the officials, faculty, and students of HUSE and LPU-B.
The delegates together with some LPU-B officials and students experienced the Filipino way of caring for the less privileged members of the community. They immersed themselves in the adopted community of the university at the SHL Restoration Village where they passionately socialized and interacted with the residents. Likewise, they exemplified their values of kindness and generosity by feeding around 35 children. Apparently, all the participants could not hide their overflowing sense of fulfillment and joy in doing such a charitable activity.
On their last day in the Philippines, the delegates visited some Tagaytay City attractions.
Undoubtedly, this cultural exchange program between HUSE and LPU-B has been very beneficial to all the participants. They definitely have broadened their awareness and understanding of cultural diversity, gained new friends, and strengthened relations making them more adaptable to different environments.
