Between Numbers and Letters:
A Feature Article on the SPECTRUM


The Official Publication of the PUP College of Engineering

“Engineering the Human Soul…”

Truly, the Spectrum’s popular catchphrase carries a colorful meaning. The PUP College of Engineering does not only teach their students how to construct structures of sophisticated magnificence but also build the edifice of pride and excellence into their hearts and minds.

The Spectrum offers these future engineers an instrument to share their thoughts and ideals and at the same time, to inform their fellow CEAns and PUPians of the hottest updates in and out of the campus. The college publication welcomes every CEAn to a world of letters in a dimension where numbers rule their lives.

Articles about the bitter consequences of poverty in the lives of a PUP student and common people are the best examples of social realities exposed in their articles. Cultural calls for the preservation of Filipino traditions and customs as well as the historic places in the Philippines. Then, the political area comes up largely on the Opinion section of the newspaper where CEAns are free to speak and comment about our national leaders and the role of the youth state affairs. Finally, the technological and scientific aspect, which carries essential and the interesting part for the CEAns for this part, reveals their specialization and expertise.

The Spectrum topics concern the individual CEAn, to the college, the university up to the national issues. The newspaper tells the typical even the most unusual stories of the engineering students of their 5-year stint in the campus. In that case, serves as a venue for CEAns to share their experiences and ideologies. More than that, it serves as an instrument of communication to air the grievances of the CEAns for the College and University administration to be heard and at the same time to inform other PUPians of their accomplishments. At the national level, CEAns stay foot of the latest updates while having the opportunity to speak out of their views an suggestions regarding the most recent issues.

The Spectrum maintains its uniqueness and sets the trend when it comes to campus publication. One of these unique variation is coming up with a “Circle” page. This section make up the “barkada and gimmick” section of the paper. Here we can read and see band gigs inside the campus, students’ “trips”, and some other cool and fun stuffs.

oo nga ang spectrum… grabe buti nga wala na diyan si Kaycee,, si baba, isang sakim at ganid sa fame at oportunista nuknukan ng oportunista, e sa mga nabasa ko ngang mga communication letter niya ay nagmamanifest na hindi siya karapat-dapat maging eic ng spectrum, at pakisabi sa kanya The Catalyst at hindi the Catralyst hehehe… at yung mga communication letter niya tanggap ko na typochrapical sana yung pagkakamali kung hindi naging consistent mula sa mga letter para sa central student council hanggang sa Catalyst Office hanggang sa Pupoy… hahaha… i pity you…

yah, i agree to that? Ang haba nga ng baba niya. but any how, has someone here know that during kaycee’s headship sa engineering spectrum that the publication was again cited as top college publication by the catholic mass media awards. sayang nga eh di pa nanalo. wish ko lang may pumapansin pa sa iyo. as i can sense, super kulang ka sa pansin. hahaha!!!

ang please, don’t spread mediocrity around. nakakahiya.
