President: Andrew Aggabao

“Hello everyone! I’m looking forward to another great year here at the good ol’ FCA! Whether you’re a new face or an old veteran, we want to make sure your time with FCA is enjoyable and worthwhile! Come meet everyone at General Body Meetings, Cultural and Modern practices, Ate/Kuya events, or even just at the FCA Stamp table. I invite everyone to get involved in as many or as few ways as you’d like, but I promise that however you participate, you will have a great time and learn a few things along the way. We have a great Eboard that is going to put together a lot of awesome events for you this year! All you have to do is stop by and see for yourself! See you there! “

Vice President: Krystle CanareKrystle

“Hey there! I’m Krystle and I am extremely excited to be your VP for the 2012-2013 school year. While some people have nicknames, I’m sad to say that I’m not one of them :(. But one thing you will hear people call me in FCA is Ate (big sister) or Tita. Why is that you may ask? It’s because FCA is one big family, a group of people that you will grow so close to that you feel as if you never left home. So come join our family this year! We’ve got cultural events that’ll help you learn more about Filipino culture, intramural and D6 sports to keep you fit, a series of rewarding community service events, modern dance, and much more! Come out and I’ll be sure to make you a cupcake, promise ;)”
