117th Silliman Founder’s Day
Silliman University is known all throughout Negros Oriental, Philippines, and the world. Being the first ever Protestant school in the country, Silliman University beams a great legacy of religious practices and quality education. Who knew that a small classroom with no less than 50 students could be the start of a great institute that is rooted in the heart and mind of Dumaguete City. The 117th Silliman Founder’s Day celebration is just a right way in commemorating the importance of education.
