"Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom" – Theodore Rubin, Psychiatrist
2015's first term blasts-off with a treat from its Student Affairs Services and Marketing team through Student Orientation. New additions to its faculty roster welcomed: design advocate and academician, Architect Walther Ocampo to take on the helm as Interior Design lecturer; fashion royalty graced the college in the personas of designers Ronaldo Arnaldo and Albert Andrada for the Fashion Design Department.
School policies and a year-end report were presented. Stories to inspire a great new year start encouraged students to be daring in making their marks and being comfortable in their own element, by being original in Raffles Design Institute Manila's campaign with #YourDesignHere. The campaign launched aims to share that success is a decision and is individually determined. The orientation was capped off with treats and words of encouragement borrowed from Neil Gaiman,"And most importantly I think there should be more wisdom in the world right now. That you will need to be wise, and always be kind."
Raffles Design Institute Manila students are not only smart, they are empowered by compassion marking today as their start for something greater!
