With a limited face-to-face return, Benilde’s Frosh orientation program, INTERAKTIV takes center stage this year, welcoming its incoming batch of Frosh and transferees into the vibrant Benildean community on Aug. 22, 23, 26, and 29. Spearheaded by Student Trainers, INTERAKTIV aims to put on a fun and engaging program for the new students to familiarize themselves with the Benildean life and culture.
Inspired by the spectacle and camaraderie of the hit musical film, The Greatest Showman, INTERAKTIV 2023 will roll up the curtains for the newest batch of Benildeans with #TheINTERAKTIVShow. The Frosh orientation program aims to celebrate the Benildean spirit, and highlight the College’s commitment to inclusion, individuality, and personal growth. Moreover, it hopes to nurture each student’s distinctive potential to make their own unique impact on the world.
INTERAKTIV kicked off with a livestream and website launch on Aug. 22. Incoming students learned more about the Benildean student life through the experiences shared by current Benildeans and alumni. Additionally, there were games scattered throughout the livestream for the Frosh to enjoy and win prizes from. On the other hand, the website consists of information about INTERAKTIV, navigating around Benilde, and it even has a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to assist students who may have queries.
Incoming students were also treated to a campus tour on Aug. 23, 26, giving them an opportunity to know more about Benilde’s facilities, and engage with their fellow peers. The last leg will be on Aug. 29.
