The newly-organized Thunderbird socio-cultural club, “Filipinos and Friends” (F&F), held their first ever outing on Thursday evening at Dillon’s Thunderbird.  According to Victor Cabiles (Founder/President), the event proved the need for the creation of the club, as part of the Asian Club umbrella.  Despite the handful of Filipino (Filipino Americans, Filipino Chinese) students currently registered at T-Bird, F&F is slowly gaining the recognition and support of the non-Filipino T-Bird students.

The mixer generated just the right number and quality of attendees.  More important, the event was graced by the presence of Mike Cottrell, President of the Phoenix Alumni Chapter.  Mike expressed the interest of the Phoenix Alumni Chapter to be more involved in student activities.  Further, Mike wanted to share his opinion on the Laureate deal through this article:  http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/print-edition/2013/07/26/my-view-t-bird-alliance-with-laureate.html

“Filipinos and Friends” would like to thank all students who made allocations to the club.  Now that the gutsy and hard part is done, Victor expects the F&F club will continue to succeed; hopefully, accompanied by an increased number of Filipino students in the near future.  F&F thanks Dinesh Goteti for taking on the role of Treasurer.  The club has an opening for a Vice President.  For anyone wishing to apply, you may contact Victor at victor.cabiles@global.t-bird.edu
