The SMX Mall of Asia in Pasay City was decked with festive decors as TUP students marched down the halls to celebrate another milestone of accomplishments witnessed by distinguished guests and proud parents of graduates for the Technological University of the Philippines’ 113th Commencement Exercises held on March 23, 2018 with the theme “The Journey Continues Towards Internationalization.”

Such is truly an honor for RD Jose B Patalinjug III to grace this momentous event serving as inspirational speaker as he fervently said, “Try to innovate, it is only by becoming better that we become the best versions of ourselves and I encourage you to brave the road not yet travelled to help our countrymen achieve a better way of living.” 

He was also able to stress the importance of creating value that such can be achieved through levelling up oneself and to practice genuine passion, excellence, uniqueness and character.

Furthermore, he reminded the graduates to provide the utmost respect to their parents because of their unconditional sacrifices, to give respect to their teachers because they served as pillars of knowledge and to respect the country, leaders and authorities no matter how chaotic or peaceful the society may be.
