I find it funny how an online debate has sparked out of the “Iskolar Than You” freshie t-shirts being sold by UP’s Circle of Entrepreneurs.
Granting it’s a little bit arrogant (just a little, mind you), but as a former Isko of PLM and UP, I take pride with the education I got from these fine institutions. I am proud to say that the taxpayers’ money have been put to good use.
That being said, I also believe that it is not enough for iskolars, UP or otherwise, to just take pride in their scholarships through these merchandises. They can do much better. The true test of being a worthy isko or iska is to be a good citizen of this nation, to contribute to its growth, and to lead lives that are worth emulating. A cooler Isko or iska is worth more than a fancy statement shirt.
So what do you think of the “Iskolar Than You” shirt? Cool? Uncool? Meh? Or are people just overreacting, again?
The statement shirts. Kinda cute (I was referring to the mestizo guy in the middle).
