Scientia is once again looking for its next Editor-in-Chief!

For the first time ever, the Editorial Exam will be fully conducted online. Applications for the 2020 Scientia Editorial Exam will open this week.

The written phase involves editorial writing (with a weight of 65 percent), news writing (25 percent), and layout (10 percent).

Traditionally, each part of the written phase lasts for an hour.

This year’s Board of Judges is composed of: Natalie Galibut, Scientia’s outgoing Editor-in-Chief; Francine Pradez, 2nd year BS Geology student; Hannah Mae Sucgang, College of Science (CS) Student Council Chair; Rene Principe, NIP Junior Faculty; and Dr. Lillian Jennifer V.
