OVCSA consults org heads re: Freshie Recruitment Ban – Tinig ng Plaridel
In response to the Office of the Student Regent’s (OSR) call to repeal the Freshie Recruitment Ban (FRB), the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (OVCSA) held a consultative meeting with student formations on Monday. The Freshie Recruitment Ban is legitimized in the 2012 University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Code of Student Conduct, which classifies the following as an act of Harm to Persons: “Accepting a student who has not completed a one-semester residency in UP Diliman for membership in a registered student association, except in the case of a fraternity or sorority for which the residency requirement is one academic year.”
