Work Hard, Play Hard
The USC-Supreme Student Council, in cooperation with LifeDance Cebu, organized the first-ever “U-Nite” held November 16, 2012 at the Basketball Court, Talamban Campus.There was a crowd gathering near the entrance to the venue before the performances started. One simply needed to look around to feel the pendent exhilaration in the air.
An hour after it officially started though, the crowd was everything but enthusiastic. The performers had to call for them to gather near the stage. This writer even overheard one Carolinian say, “Boring! Kung mag-in-ani hantod unya, manguli jud ang mga tao.” Had she waited for another hour, she would have eaten her words.
Carolinian bands got the party started by playing downright amazing songs but it was the main band, Missing Filemon, who managed to get everybody on their feet by performing their most-loved Cebuano rock songs, Inday and Prinsipal. Everyone seemed to know the lyrics by heart. Add DJ Gino of The Loft to that mix, it was one heck of a party. Michael Lucas, the fire dancer, was a big bonus. He floored the Carolinians by performing impressing fire stunts and by literally breathing fire.
The party ended with some astonishing fireworks display from the PyroFest SM Cebu Champion, JKC Fire Inovation of Team DSS.
U-Nite shouldn’t be confused with Student’s Night. While Student’s Night was a party that welcomed Carolinians to a new academic year, U-Nite was a “party for a cause” – a cause that remains to known, so stay tuned for the SS Council’s next event. But for now, let us bask in the warm afterglow of what had arguably been the most amazing University party yet.
