To celebrate our 100th Loyalty Day, UPLB is hosting Isang Daan sa Isang Minuto: The Centennial Loyalty Day Video Making Contest.
Loyalty Day commemorates the moment in UPLB’s history when hundreds of students and faculty volunteered to join the Philippine National Guard in 1918. This act of courage and willingness to serve continues to resonate even today.
