Bernil (BS Biology) for Competition Winners, (3) Neicy Marie F. Pilarca (BS MIS) for Student Leaders, and (4) Vanessa T. Siy Van (BS Health Science), Class Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude, for Honor Students. Dr. Evangeline P. Bautista, Dean of the School of Science and Engineering, gave the Closing Remarks. Mr. Ronald Allan C. Cruz, Assistant Professor of the Department of Biology, served as emcee.

From the Department of Physics, 11 students received awards, consisting of 8 undergraduates and 2 graduate students. The Departmental Awardee is Ms. Aliena Mari P. Miranda (BS Applied Physics MSE), Honorable Mention of Class 2018 and Finalist of BPI-DOST Science Awards 2018. She served in the Council of Organizations of Ateneo (COA) as Cluster Head for Analysis and Discourse and as Vice President for Organizational Strategies and Research (2017-2018).

Below are the Message of the Dean, the Program of Activities, and the List of Awardees.

I. MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

We congratulate all the students in this list as we recognize how each of you truly personifies the spirit of magis. The school of Science and Engineering is proud of how you have excelled in academics, research, leadership, competition and sports. It is thus with confidence and excitement that we let you, a relatively small group of scientists, mathematicians and engineers, loose in a country which is only beginning to truly appreciate the value of science and engineering. We trust that you will grow to be successful scientists and engineers and at the same time stay true to being what Ateneo molded you to be—men and women for others.
