St. Dominic College of Asia in collaboration with Cerebro Cavite Inc., hosted a one day seminar –workshop on Campus Journalism in the AVR, Dona Dominga hall, on May 13.

In line with its goal in expanding the knowledge and giving importance to Campus Journalism, St. Dominic College of Asia reached out to Cerebro Cavite Inc. to host the said event.

Cerebro Cavite is a corporation under the Securities and Exchange Commission that provides education-related programs to a wide range clientele to fulfill its primary purpose of “conducting and facilitating seminars, lectures and other training sessions for personal and professional growth”.

Students, aspiring journalists, and representatives from different schools and Universities converged together to learn from the reporters; Mr. James Konstantin Galvez (The Manila Times) and Ms. Charina Clarisse Echaluse (Manila Bulletin).

Mr. Jonathan Velustria Sta. Ana, Student Affairs and Services Director welcomed the attendees in his opening remarks. He was followed by Mr. Anthony T. Trias, President of Cerebro  Cavite Inc.,  for the introduction of the speakers.

            Afterwards, attendees were divided into two groups for the two categories; News Writing and Feature Writing workshop, based on their interest.

The News Writing was facilitated by Mr. James Konstatin Galvez, where he discussed thoroughly the importance of writing a good lead and the essence of news writing. Meanwhile, Ms. Charina Clarisse Echaluse (Manila Bulletin), lectured about Feature Writing. Aside from discussing the background of the latter, she answered questions from the attendees relating to the topic.

            The attendees were also able to apply their learning and showcase their skills through a writing contest, held on both categories. Our very own, Christian Mendoza, garnered the 2nd runner up for the Feature Writing category.
