MANILA–In honor of the late national artist Nick Joaquin’s 100th birth anniversary, Far Eastern University (FEU) recently held a series of activities including lectures, an art exhibit and a relaunch of his book.

In a statement, Michael Alba, president of FEU said that the national artist for literature played a big role in the school’s history.

“For FEU, Nick is more than just a Philippine treasure. His works are part of our identity and his legacy remains in the values and culture of the university,” Alba said. “He wrote our hymn and authored books about our alma Mater; he even wrote the biography of our founder Nicanor Reyes, Sr. It is but natural for us to celebrate his life and his contributions not only to our community, but to all Filipinos.”
