The PAPJA Convention is a gathering of psychology undergraduate students all over the Philippines. Competitions are set for psychology majors to showcase their undergraduate theses, talents, and skills in songwriting, dance, and filmmaking (in PsyClips).
On March 11, 2022, Miriam College was announced as the First Place in the Songwriting Contest The title of their composition is L.A.Y. (Look Around You). With the theme "Recalibrating Philippine Psychology Towards a More Responsive Discipline in the Challenging Times," the song sends out a message that there is someone within reach who could be with them, listen to them, and help ease their burdens when life seems to be a difficult place to live in. We can make a call and reach out to our friends and loved ones to ease our burdens.
