During this 41st anniversary celebration, the newly elected Executive Council for 2015-2017 will be formally inducted into office and will be headed by Laura Garcia, the SUAA NY-NJ 19th President.

Silliman University (SU or Silliman) is a private research university located in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental, Philippines.

Established in 1901 as Silliman Institute by the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions.

Historically, Silliman was the first American university organized in the Philippines and the Asian continent.

SUAA NY-NJ was formally organized on July 21,1974, when an ad hoc council composed of five Silliman alumni met in New York City to spearhead the traditional celebration of Philippines Founders Day.

The meeting and celebration gave birth to the formation of SU Alumni Association when, in the course of that day, the five ad hoc council members determined to set their sights on organizing an alumni association, while commemorating the traditional Founders’ Day celebration.

To attend the festivities, please call Emma Gornez 516.592.1696 or Laura Garcia 908.627.1954.
