  1. I remember singing, whether in solo or in choir, in some of her usually grand birthdays, October 2, at the UNC Gymnasium back in elementary and high school in the mid-90s, and writing few some stories about her for the UNC Trailblazer. I remember she was the one who personally handed my high school diploma and Loyalty Award. Eleven years later, as a staff of the Ateneo de Naga University, I remember interviewing her for the citation for the Archbishop. She was happy and sincerely interested in our conversation. She even made me so comfortable that she initiated talking about my mother towards the end of the interview. As my mother usually described her, she was still the glamorous and confident woman maintaining unity and strength within the family and the school her father founded. It was my last recollection of the matriarch and Bikolana icon, Dr. Dolores 'Dolly' Hernandez Sison, 1919-2011.

  2. Once in a while colleges or universities offer off-grounds living arrangements, or school-claimed houses. These living arrangements are here and there called "upper year" or "wedded understudy living arrangements." They normally don't have a required dinner design, however they will enable you to select in to halfway or full feast designs on the off chance that you need. These living arrangements are regularly laid-out in a loft style. They are by and large near grounds. check cashing san diego
