CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM OF RCS TERTIARY STUDENTS WITH SOUTH KOREANS

RCS Tertiary level students imbibed a more accurate understanding about the South Korean culture courtesy of friends from Two-Wings Church, a missionary group from South Korea. The cultural immersion was held at the Bahay ng Alumni, Roosevelt College Cainta, on June 25, 2014, at 1:00 pm.

 Twenty-eight South Korean students bonded with about the same number of RCS tertiary students and both groups learned much about each other’s cultures in a friendly manner.

 

The South Koreans facilitated the whole program. Everybody, both the South Koreans and the Rooseveltians, introduced themselves to get well acquainted. A game of “sipa” a traditional Filipino game was played. The South Koreans won while the Rooseveltians laughed at their embarrassment for losing the game. Other games played were bato bato pick, the Filipino counterpart of rock paper scissors, and the winning challenger got a chance to put stickers on the losing opponent’s face.

 Rooseveltians serenaded the South Koreans with a Filipino song “Chinito” and the South Koreans sang a folksong, too.

 The South Koreans taught many things to the Filipino students. For example, they explained that both Philippine and South Korean cultures value family practices. In South Korea and in the Philippines as well, as far as the writer’s perception is concerned, a family’s own wellbeing is much more important than the needs of the individual. Members of the family are tied to each other because the actions of one family member reflect on the rest of the family.

 In conventional homes in both countries, up to four generations may live in the same family dwelling. The eldest son (or daughter) is expected to assume responsibility for the care of parents when they can no longer provide for themselves. Daughters, when married, are expected to move from their family home and join the husband’s family household.

 Traditionally, the father is the head of the family and it is his responsibility to provide food, clothing, and shelter, and to approve the marriages of family members. Rooseveltians discovered these similarities during the cultural immersion.

 The South Koreans capped the meeting by handing out Choco pies, a South Korean chocolate treat, to everyone, and then, they got Turon, a Filipino delicacy, in return. The students of RCS TED found out that South Korea has a very enduring, long, and beautiful history. It was interesting to note that the South Korean culture was built over centuries of tradition and was influenced by other cultures in the area as well. It is based on family, respect, and responsibility.

 Despite some differences in cultures, both the South Koreans and the Filipinos saw the value of respect for the elders as leaders of the family, responsible for making decisions that affect the rest of the family members. This shows us how beautiful family values may differ but are still the same in many places in the Far East.

PRESIDENT DE LA PAZ ORDERS ALL OFFICES TO MIGRATE TO OPEN SOURCE PROGRAMS

The whole Roosevelt College System has been directed by President Romeo P. De la Paz to migrate to the Open Source Ubuntu Operating System effective School Year 2014 – 2015.

UBUNTU is an ancient African word meaning “humanity to others.” It also means “I am what I am because of who we all are.” The Ubuntu Operating System brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the world of computers.

UBUNTU is a package of free software available to everybody on the same terms and supported through a portfolio of services provided by the LINUX Company. Both the release and ongoing updates are freely available to all users.

The migration is being put into effect in the wake of threats from Microsoft Philippines to confiscate all computer hardware and peripherals from offices, schools, and organizations that are using their programs through pirated means. The Roosevelt College System has been warned several times by local representatives from Microsoft Philippines, saying that they will carry away with them all the computer units in our offices without any hope of these units being returned.
