The FEU Drum and Bugle Corps led the anthem followed by the ribbon cutting ceremony. The priest, executives, and associates began the blessing proper on the 14th all the way up to the 17th floor accompanied by a rosary prayer.
Dr. Alba shared a few words and pointed out that technological innovation promised by the building is not for FEU alone but also for the rest of the country. The Modern Marvel which is the FEU Tech building will be the avenue for higher education to achieve greater heights. Today, the building stands as the highest educational institution in the area which can accommodate around 5,000 students.
