The alumni of  the Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) felt the warm welcome of their beloved Alma Mater as they arrived for the official opening of the university's 92nd Grand Alumni Homecoming. With the theme "WMSU Alumni: Partners for Development and Excellence,” the whole university was abuzz with different activities.

The homecoming started last Thursday evening with the High School Talent Night. Yesterday, throngs of alumni registered and were elated to meet old school chums and their teachers once more after 25 years. Batch ’86 is this year’s Silver Jubilarians with Batch ’61 as the Golden Jubilarians.

The day started with a Thanksgiving Mass, followed by the traditional Alumni Parade and Review with AB Political ’86 graduate Dr. Bienvenido Gregorio as the inspirational speaker.. The annual Alumni Business Meeting was cancelled due to lack of forum to the dismayed of most of the alumni as they wanted to know the performance of the present alumni officers.

The motorcade honked the city announcing that the WMSUANs are back home once more. It ended last night with the Alumni Grand Fellowship at the university’s open stage.

Today will be a giddier and bracing day as the alumni will vote for the next university’s alumni officers.  There will be 3 parties running for the 15 slots who will vote among themselves who will be the next alumni president. This is hotly contested election because the one who will be elected as the alumni president will be a member of the powerful university’s board of regent. There is an immense call to improve and change the present set of officers.

Sunday will be the Testimonial Dinner at the Celebrity Hall of Grand Astoria Hotel.

Warm welcome to the WMSUANs!
