Dal-uy Festival

Dal-uy Festival is the celebration of hopes and dreams.  Every year Foundation University honors Founder's Day by lighting lanterns and sending them off to the Central Vasayas Sea.  Each student, staff, and faculty are encouraged to write their wishes, hopes, and dreams for the coming year.  This year, the theme is "What are you waiting for?" and it marks 64 years of academics at Foundation University.  There are over 4,000 students this year, making an impressive, glowing display on the waterfront.  I'm happy to share in many more positive traditions with FU.

Filipinos love fireworks.  It is typical for every significant FU event a fireworks display will be the headliner for the activity.  As often as this may occur, does it rarely get old, especially since the Dal-uy event was held on July 3.  I marveled at this year's display in honor of America's own "Founder's" Independence Day.

 Over 4,000 lanterns graced the waterfront with messages of wishes, hopes, and dreams.

Here, the Director of Finance and Administration and Dean of the Department of Architecture and Fine Arts is launching his lantern with his support staff behind.

Pleased to send my lantern off among the thousands of positive messages.
