On October 29, 1904, seven Sisters of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres established its first foundation in the Philippines in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental. This was the beginning of the history of St. Paul University Dumaguete. The Founders Week celebrated this momentous occasion from October 24-29 through a bunch of spiritual and fun-filled activities.
Students from nursery to college participatedby going to triduum masses, patronizing booths that offered some games and fun such as the marriage and jail booth, movie watching in a school cinema and much more. Night time was never a bore for there were the Night of Dance, Mr. and Ms. Ambassador, Students’ Night and the grand Alumni Homecoming among others.
The Founders Week ended in an array of colors as the students performed the various festivals of the Philippines and a showcase of cultures of the ASEAN nations.
