The TIPON SILLIMAN 2013 will take place in Dumaguete City on August 21, 22, 23, 24, & 25, 2013. For the first time Tipon Silliman will be held, not only outside of America, but right at home on the SU campus. Tipon Silliman 2013 is viewed as "coming back to our roots" by all alumni. For some it can be a sentimental journey; for others it can be a fulfillment of long or often postponed planned visit. For everyone it will be an awesome experience of a lifetime.
Please mark your calendars and firm up your plans now. Waste no time in reserving your hotel accomodations and making arrangements for this most meaningful and memorable experience. Meanwhile, you can sign up if you are planning to attend. This will help the committee in planning TIPON Silliman 2013. If married, please include your maiden name .
