The UPCEAA invites you to attend the UP College of Education Grand Alumni
Homecoming on the 26th of June 2011, Sunday, at the Bahay ng Alumni (along Magsaysay Avenue, behind the University Theatre) starting at 1:00 in the afternoon.

Homecoming.

We will also be entertained by the youthful and energetic, THE BLOOMFIELDS BAND, renowned in the Philippines for reviving the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s music.
To make this event colourful, we encourage you to come in outfits that were
highly fashionable in the ‘60s such as wide collars, flair pants, mini-skirts, muumuu, elephant pants, Jackie Onassis sunglasses and beehive hairstyle, and so on… The Jubilarians and alumni batches are encouraged to showcase their talents consistent with the ‘60s theme.
