In an interview last Tuesday, December 1, Ateneo BOx AVP for Academic Affairs Miguel Valencia hinted at possible updates for the EduKit project of the organization.
Highlighting bioeducation as one of the organization’s core values, the Ateneo BOx held a three-day writing workshop via Zoom to intensify science communication through journalism on Nov 4, 6, and 23, 2020.
A sudden increase in student membership this school year compelled the Ateneo Biological Organization (Ateneo BOx) to convene its first-ever online general assembly for two days, October 9-10.
The Ateneo BOx and the Ateneo Environmental Science Society (AESS) joined together to aid the rise of the gardening hobby by co-hosting the Leafin’ a Good Life: How to Be a Better Plant Parent Workshop, held last October 3, 2020 via Zoom.
This initiative hopes to enrich the experience of BS Biology and Life Science freshies during their first year in college by partnering them with eligible upperclassmen who will eagerly impart moral, academic, and emotional support through genuine friendships.
To solidify its identity and inclusiveness as an advocacy-based organization, the Ateneo BOx revamped its branding with an improved logo, a redesigned mascot, and a slight change in the color palette.
BOx welcomes the new academic year ‘20-’21 with the launch of its new official website at http://www.ateneobox.com! Serving as a reliable and updated source of information, anyone can take a glimpse into what the organization is all about.
This year’s event broke new grounds, being BOx’s first official online event this school year since the COVID-19 pandemic caused students to shift to distance learning. Its theme, Apex, was designed to put the freshies at the top and fill in the whole experience that they will be missing out during their first year on campus.
From November 25 to 29, 2019, BOx members were given the chance to bond with their fellow org members during Tambay Week 2019: BOxYard, which was held at SEC-B Foyer.
Friday, November 22 2019, BOX members participating in the LEAP Apprenticeship Program had the opportunity to assess their strengths by attending a workshop entitled, "Knowing One's Self, Goal Setting, and Introspection."
