XU Dev Com’s 3rd Syagit Exhibit
Syagit, an annual advertorial campaign exhibit presented by senior Development Communication (Dev Com) students of Xavier University, was once again brought to life last March 11, 2011 with the theme “Communi Speak: Think Aloud, Speak Out, Syagit.” This year’s venue was the Limketkai Center.
The second floor of Limketkai’s north concourse was in a flurry as guests and students went scurrying about to fulfill their tasks to make the opening of the exhibit a success.
Like most exhibits, Syagit was formally opened with a feast for the senses. There were talks about the program’s purpose, its goals and achievements. The talks were followed by the ribbon cutting rite, and then it was finally time to walk around the exhibit area to behold what the Dev Com students spent sleepless nights for. And let’s not forget the food that was served to guests as they laid eyes on the displays.
The print campaigns included were for Breast Cancer Awareness, Vegetable Gardening, Library Campaign, Onion Bulb Production and Waste Management. There were also local publications, including news journals for the barangays, such as Calaanan, Bayanga, Nazareth, Bayanga, Lapasan and Consolacion.
Syagit is more than just a collection of artworks and sheets of paper pasted together. The annual exhibit aims to raise awareness of societal, environmental concerns and other relevant issues of our rural towns and barangays. After all, it’s the local communities that comprise a nation. For that reason, the students tied up with the aforementioned barangays in order to push development.
Aside from the welfare of our barangays, Syagit promotes support across a wide range of sectors, such as health, education, cancer awareness and the environment.
Moreover, Syagit is so-called because at times like these, we have to shout to be heard, so that our leaders can hear our problems and our queries.
The exhibit was brought to fruition thanks partly to the support of its sponsors, namely Limketkai, Modtrade, Sticky Media Solutions Inc, Rose Pansit Malabon, Parasat Digital, Atoy Martinez and Style Candy.
