Cadet Officers and Sponsors shared the fun of summer by having basic swimming training conducted by the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary at the Makati Aquatic Sports Complex last 17 May 2014.
The session covered the basic buoyancy test to gliding, drownproofing techniques, the proper swimming strokes like freestyle, elementary backstroke, and breaststroke. The session went longer with the breaststroke because it requires good coordination.

Nang Dahil sa ROTC:
Natutunan ko maging disiplinado at responsable. Noong una, ayaw ko. Sayang sa time, sayang sa pera, sayang sa lakas. Subalit dito, nalaman ko na ang mga ito ay hindi sayang, kung hindi worthwhile. Gigising ng maaga, aayusin ang mga gamit, lalo ang inspection materials, uniform, etc. Akala ko mahirap, pero dito pala, nasusubukan ang discipline ko.
Naranasan ko ang ilang once in a lifetime experiences. Nakapunta ako ng Fort Magsaysay, nakaakyat ng Taclang Damulag, at nakakilala ng ilang mga sundalo na talagang kahanga hanga. Kahit paano ay nakita ko ang buhay nila, kung paano sila magsanay, at iba pa.

In UP ROTC, the university motto is never irrelevant – honor and excellence. In every training day, we were pushed to excellence by the authority of our cadet officers – may it be in practical exercises such as rappelling, first aid and marksmanship or in the execution of platoon drills and practicing the SOPs. Indeed, a hundred and two years of existence has not tarnished the honor of the UP Corps of Cadets – and it was a great honor to be part of the ranks.

Early in the morning, we were asked to form in front of Classroom 2. We practiced different riffle drills from “Kanang Balikat”, “Kaliwang Balikat” and ceremony drills like “tanghal”. It took some time before all of us in the unit were almost synchronized in doing the drills. We were under the sun for some hours but it was definitely fulfilling when CMaj Fiestada 1Cl noted that we were improving and with more practice, we’ll be able to perfectly execute the drills.

The seventh training day, July 28, 2013, for the cadets of University of the Philippines Reserve Officers Training was one of the most tense, fun and exciting. Tense because the cadets have to be alert for all of the times, well the “level of alertness” is much higher compared from the other training days. It is fun and exciting because of the activities that occurred. But what did they train that day? It is about marksmanship (handling and firing a firearm) and human dignity.

In the DMST complex, after the inspection, each company was taught the basic marching procedures which are usually done during drills and for ceremonies. This proved to be a lesson that would take a lot of practice to master, and so it was advised that cadets meet for practice. “Nakakalito ang marching,” says CPvt Charisse Cervana 4Cl from the Service Support Unit.
