Mambukal Mountain Resort.

Ms. Janet Villanueva.
Summer is fun when shared...
Finding meaning to one’s summer vacation has been realized among the
Varsity Players and Coaches of Riverside when they had a Sports Clinic with
GK Smile Village in Murcia last May 14 and 15.
Under the initiative and supervision of RC Sports Coordinator Ms.
Analou Claridad, the children and youth of the said village were privileged to
learn the basics in playing Badminton, Volleyball and Taekwondo.
The varsity players felt the joy of imparting their God-given talents to
their brothers and sisters who definitely deserve to know how such games
are to be played and how to build each other up in times of competitions and
how friendships could be built among team players.
The Sports Clinic was materialized in coordination with the Community
Extension Office .
Ms. Jiji Berina and Ms. Analiza Licayan of the Library attended the
ALBASA 42nd Annual and General Assembly last May 19-21 in Cebu City.

Inc.) had for this year as its theme: Ässessment and Development of
Librarians’ Professional Competencies Towards ASEAN Integration.”
Riverside College has been a member of ALBASA since 2008.
Mr. Ranel Cichon of the Library also had the privilege of attending the
CE-LOGIC 7th National Electronic Conference last May 27-29 in Quezon City
with the theme: “Creating a Legacy Towards Nation Building: Library and
Information Specialists Community Leaders in Today’s Information Society.”
As a result of the library staff’s attendance to professional development
activities, innovations are made in response to the growing needs of the RC
clientele. For this opening, the Riverside College library has added to its
services another Discussion Room that can accommodate 20 persons at a
time, a Silent Study Room with 30 individual study carrels and 10 personal
The IMC (Instructional Media Center) of the college has also acquired 4
additional units of LCD TV for the classrooms in the 5th Floor.
