Since Silliman University’s founding in 1901, a very important part of
campus life has been its cultural fare. In 1905, the Cultural Affairs
Committee was founded. Every week, there is always a concert, a literary
workshop or poetry reading, a play, a dance, an exhibit, a film showing, or
some other cultural activity taking place in a number of exhibition halls and
performance spaces within its campus. The Committee continues its
mission by exposing students to all the arts—with a subsidized fee, perhaps
the most generous of its kind in the country, allowing students and the
Dumaguete community to see cultural presentations, join in the lectures,
and view art exhibits by such national companies as Ballet Philippines, the
Manila Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Manila, Dulaang U.P., the Philippine
Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philippine Madrigal Singers, Repertory
Philippines, Tanghalang Pilipino, the Bayanihan National Dance Company,
the Ramon Obusan National Dance Company, the New Voice Company,
and others. The Committee functions to help promote Philippine culture by
especially promoting Filipino artists, and to screen or audition University
performing groups who wish to perform outside and inside of the University.
The provision of living facility is as essentially a part of the work of the
University as the provision of classrooms, libraries and laboratories. The
dormitories offer a diversity of programs such as lectures and discussions,
athletics, social and cultural programs, and other experiences. The
dormitory staff are eager to get to know each student on an individual basis
and are available to give help and aid whenever needed. A wide variety of
personal and group experiences are offered through which the individual
can interact naturally with others for his personal development.
Silliman operations regular and cooperative dormitories. These dormitories
provide comfortable living conditions for approximately 800 students.

excavations, purchases or donations from the students, alumni, faculty,
missionaries and other individuals who are friends of Silliman University.

from known cultural or ethnic groups all over the country. These artifacts
include basketry, agricultural and aquatic tools, weapons, clothing and
ornaments as well as musical instruments. These are displayed according
to two general parameters – the type of social organization (incipient, tribal
or sultanate) and the type of economic subsistence (hunting, and gathering,
marginal agriculture or farming) under which ethnic group is categorized.
The archaeological artifacts on exhibit in the last four galleries are those
which have been excavated from the different parts of Negros Island and the
highlands of Cotabato. The collection includes the different mortuary
vessels and urns which were used by prehistoric Filipinos for burying their
dead. Students are encouraged to participate in as many activities as
possible provided these do not interfere with the greater goal of good
academic work. Students are encouraged likewise to consult the SOAD on
matters concerning student activities.
