Showcasing their talents, teamwork, and social skills, students from De La Salle Lipa’s (DLSL) College of Education, Arts, and Sciences (CEAS) competed during this year’s CEAS Cup 2023: Bughawan Fest last March 13 to March 16, with the psychology students emerging with the most championship wins across the various events.
Organized by the CEAS Student Government (SG), the week-long event provided an opportunity for CEAS students to excel outside the classroom and compete in the basketball and volleyball tournaments, the “CEASiklaban: Tagisan ng Talento” singing and dancing competition, and the Mr. and Ms. CEAS Cup pageant.
The psychology department, Team Bukang-liwayway, came out victorious as they bagged three championship titles by winning both the basketball and volleyball tournaments and the dance category of the “CEASiklaban: Tagisan ng Talento” with their solo act representative, Kenno Manalo.
Meanwhile, the singing competition was won by the education department’s representatives.
Concluding the week, Louijene Espinosa and Christine Ordoveza, from the education and biology departments, were crowned as this year’s Mr and Ms. CEAS Cup 2023.

For the volleyball tournament, the communication students of Team Tahanan placed second, while the biology students of Team Kalinaw finished third.
In an interview with Lavoxa Online, Ferlle Christine Ancheta, CEAS Governor, said that the CEAS Cup paved the way for the entire CEAS community to recognize, explore, and celebrate their skills while having the opportunity to build and foster a connection with other CEAS students.
“I would say na the CEAS Cup served as an effective avenue for the CEAS community to extensively showcase their skills and wits while nurturing them through the activities presented during the week-long event,” said Ancheta.
