Philippine Week has always been a source of great pride and honor for Filipino students in APU. Due to our relatively small student population, it is a challenge for us to share our culture and tradition with the rest of the APU community.

For this reason, Philippine Week provides an important venue where we are able to introduce the uniqueness of our country and the talent of its people. Now on its third year, Philippine Week will offer fun-filled and exciting activities that surely many will be looking forward to. Music lovers can try their luck in our karaoke competition. Choose your favorite song and sing at the top of your lungs as our mystery judges will only pick the best competitor to win.For those who yearn for more of a thrill, join Outbreak APU where you will literally run for your life.

Everyone is also invited to try out our famous Filipino brewed coffee served with delectable local confectionaries at the Pinoy Café.

Lastly, make sure to watch our grand show which will feature a romantic musical that is both a feast for the eyes and a treat for the ears. With all these events, we invite APU students, faculty and staff to come celebrate with us in this colorful festival called Philippine Week.
