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.
To send greetings to UPLB students, just follow these easy steps:
  1. Visit the Holiday Greetings page. OSAM account is not required so the alumni and non-students can also participate.
  2. Enter information about the student and click Search.
  3. Use the holiday SMS keyword displayed on the screen.

DISCLAIMER: The government did not fund this project or the resources used for this project. This is a result of staff creativity with resources from the staff members.
