THIS YEAR’S INTRAMURALS have been postponed to Dec. 2-6 instead of the original Nov. 18-22 schedule, a member of the Silliman University administration said.
Meriam Ramacho, University Athletics director, said that since enrollment for the second semester has been extended until Nov. 15 due to the delays caused by the typhoons, the change was made to allow colleges more time to practice and prepare.
Headed by Dr. Betsy Joy Tan, the Vice President for Academic Affairs Executive Committee decided on the new date to give students ample time to focus on their academic work after intramurals and before prelim exams, which are slated on Dec. 16-21.
Ramacho said that their top priority, as always, is the safety of the students. She added that as part of their contingency plans, they have requested the Buildings and Grounds to check and oversee the playing venues.
“I just hope and pray that we will have a friendly weather because the games will still push through rain or shine,” she said.
