On December 25, January 1, and February 14, we will deliver your holiday messages to any UPLB student! Messages will be collected starting December 20-24, December 30-January 1, and February 11-14. Messages will be delivered via SMS on December 25, January 1, and February 14, respectively.

Services such as this may be out of hand but rest assured that what we do at OSA undergo careful planning and development. This service is used by COMMIT to test our SMS facility. During the initial implementation last Christmas and last New Year, we tested the capability of our facility to send scheduled SMS. We stressed test our facility too during the Valentine season.

This time, we are testing our system for custom keywords. Each student has been assigned a unique holiday SMS keyword so that they can receive greetings from anyone without revealing their mobile numbers. At the same time, identities of the senders will never be disclosed.
