Upang mas mapalawak ang kaalaman ng mga mag-aaral sa modernong teknolohiya, nagbukas ang Miriam College ng isang Innovation Center kung saan bukas ito sa mga estudyante mula elementarya hanggang kolehiyo na may iba’t ibang pasilidad upang mahasa ang kanilang mga kaalaman.
Ang Mababang Paaralan ng Kolehiyo ng Miriam ay nagsama-sama upang ipagdiwang ang Buwan ng Wika noong Agosto 26, 2016. Ang tema ay “Talino at Talento Ipakita Gamit ang Wikang Filipino.”
Bilang bahagi ng pagdiriwang, ang bawat baitang ay nagpakita ng kanilang talino at talento sa pamamagitan ng pag-awit, pagsayaw ng mga awiting pambata, pagbigkas ng tula, pagsalaysay ng kuwentong kapupulutan ng aral, pagbabahagi ng natatanging talento, at pakikipagtagisan ng talino.
Bumisita rin ang mga mag-aaral sa BASA (Basahin Ang Sariling Atin) eksibit kung saan natunghayan nila ang mga natatanging proyekto ng mga mag-aaral mula sa iba’t ibang baitang.
Sa pamamagitan ng mga natatanging pagdiriwang ay nalilinang at napauunlad ang kaalaman at kakayahan ng mga mag-aaral sa paggamit ng wikang Filipino. Nabibigyan din sila ng pagkakataong maipakita ang kanilang talino at talento at maipahayag ang sarili gamit ang wikang Filipino.
As part of Miriam College’s 90th anniversary celebration, an ‘underground’ activity known as “Project 9.0” was organized by the Office of the President involving two teams from the High School and from the College. The latter was represented by BA Communication students Paola Neyra, Claire Uy, Elaine Nasi, and Patricia Ortile.
The project proposals were presented to and judged by Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus, Director for Innovation Development and High School Principal Dr. Edizon A. Fermin, Marketing and Communications Head Romualdo A. Romualdo, Communications and Media Coordinator Dahl Bennett, and Special Project Coordinator Mian Arcega last August 12, 2016 at the Board Room.
Both teams were tasked to come up with a high-impact, low-cost, and feasible project. After careful deliberation, two ideas were picked from the HEU that included a Post-It installation wherein students wrote short messages to the future MC community. These messages were posted on tarpaulins located in the Lower School, Middle School, High School, College, Miriam Adult Education, and Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf. The Post-Its were later gathered in a jar to be opened after a couple of years for reflection.
The other idea highlights the four core values of Miriam College – truth, justice, peace, and integrity of creation —and will be reflected in feel-good statements incorporated in tricycle stickers which will be distributed at the end of this year.

The Miriam College–Child Study Center celebrated Grandparents’ Day last September 24, 2016. The unit opened its gates to welcome students and their eager grandparents for a day of fun and bonding.
Hands and minds got busy with the craft stations set up. Grandparents and grandkids enjoyed mini t-shirt decorating, bracelet making, chime making, and sand art. They sang and danced to their heart’s content at the Videoke and Zumba areas while games such as Ring Toss and Hit The Can made lolo and lola kids all over again.
Healthway was also around to give free checkups and goodie bags to both the children and their grandparents. It was truly a fun, memorable day spent honoring the students’ dear grandparents.
