February 23, 2020
The New Era University Alumni Association Incorporated (NEUAAI) and the New Era University (NEU) hosted the Grand Job Fair at the NEU School of Management building, situated alongside Central Avenue, New Era, Quezon City, on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The said Job Fair showcased 50,000 vacant positions from over 200 companies ranging from to construction and infrastructure to sales and marketing. According to Atty. Randy B. Escolango, President of the NEUAAI, the event was thought of by the Association in response to the growing need of the Filipino community to contribute to the nation's economy. "This Job Fair is our way of helping our Alma Mater as well as the many Filipinos who want an opportunity for a better life."
Government officials as well as many of the participating companies who were present for the Job Fair were impressed with how the activity was conducted. Commissioner Raymund Liboro of the National Privacy Commission remarked that the Grand Job Fair was "amazing... I have been to many job fairs but (the Grand Job Fair) really tops it all." Clarence Cajiugan of Robinson Land Corporation quipped that they were pleasantly surprised that many jobseekers came to the Job Fair. "We thought that the Job Fair will only attract students but it is good that the activity attracted people looking for a better line of work."
According to statistics provided by the NEUAAI, thousands upon thousands of job hunters visited the Job Fair, which started at 9:00 in the morning and lasted until the late afternoon. To keep the crowd entertained, the Iglesia Ni Cristo Christian Family Organizations (CFO) volunteered to hold various activities in the SOM Grounds, including the Saturday Family Market. In all, it was a successful Job Fair, and the NEUAAI promises to hold more of these activities in the near future.

NEU Cares: University and Alumni Association Unite in Extending Relief to Taal Volcano Eruption Victims
January 27, 2020
As the Taal Volcano continues to wreak havoc and disrupt the lives of those who live close to it, the need for extending whatever assistance grows stronger. The New Era University is one with the Filipino nation in helping out our fellow men affected by the volcanic eruption.
On January 25, 2020, NEU, through its Alumni Association, made the trek to the province of Batangas to hand out relief goods to the victims of Taal Volcano. In an interview with Atty. Randy B. Escolango, President of the NEUAAI, the relief efforts were borne from the desire to help out fellows in need. "When we heard that many of our fellow Filipinos were left homeless by the eruption, we felt that we had to give them the assurance they won't face this crisis alone." Atty. Escolango is no stranger to such a calamity, since he hails from Olongapo, one of the provinces hardest-hit by the Mount Pinatubo eruption. Within days of the Taal Volcano seismic activity, he called his fellow NEUAAI members to action. In a matter of days, they were able to amass enough relief goods; the NEU School of Management became the base of operations for the repacking of necessary items.
The first relief effort was held at the Batangas City South Elementary School, where 168 families were given relief goods, which included hygiene kits; after the goods were handed out, the group fed the more than 700 evacuees stationed there.
Later, the contingent went to NEU-Lipa Branch to hand out relief goods and food to more then 320 evacuees. As part of the upliftment to the brethren gathered there, parlor games were held, lending to the positive and joyous atmosphere to the proceedings.
Bro. Jay Cosme, Resident Minister of the Local Congregation of Batangas City, commented that "Masayang-masaya ang mga tao dahil sa pag-lingap ng Unibersidad.(The people here are very happy for the help extended by the University).
Added Bro. Mario Torres, Minister of the Gospel, "Maraming nakakita ng kaayusan ng pamamahagi, at dahil sa ang Unibersidad ay itinayo ng Iglesia Ni Cristo, marami ang kababayan natin ang nagtatanong na ng ukol sa Iglesia. (Many people have seen the orderliness of the relief efforts, and since the University was founded by the Church of Christ, many people have begun to inquire about the Church).
Maligaya ang mga kapatid, dahil sa sandaling oras ay nawalan sila ng pagod and dismaya (The brethren are happy, because for a brief moment they let go of their stress and dismay), said Bro. Eliezer Ortiz, Branch Director of NEU-Lipa.
In all, though the trek was under the grim shadow of the threat coming from Taal Volcano, the relief efforts were successful. Atty. Escolango, for his part, claims that there will be more relief efforts to be arranged by the NEUAAI, for the benefit of those victimized by this calamity.
NEU PARTICIPATES IN THE 34th INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP HELD IN BASECO, MANILA.
September 24, 2019
In spite of heavy rain and an early schedule, selected NEU students from different Colleges, led by NEU Center for Community Extension and Linkages (CCEL) department, gathered to help clean the coast of Baseco, Manila on September 21, 2019 as part of the 34th International Coastal Cleanup (ICC). The ICC is an annual activity administered by International Coastal Cleanup Philippines (ICC Philippines) which is also the National Coordinator of Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup, the world's largest volunteer effort for the marine environment.
New Era University encourage its students to promote "Service to Humanity" as one of NEU's core values, and one way of doing this is by helping the community in taking care of the environment we live in. It is expected that by greater awareness about the current situation of the different waterways in the country are instilled to the delegates, mainly the youth.
It was all smiles after the event. Even though exhausted, the fact that everyone are united in one goal for nature is a truly sight worth seeing.
