Calling all Thomasian Collectors: Sto. Tomas Launches ’80 Mementos’

Bring in your oldest and most valuable Thomasian memorabilia and be part of the ’80 Mementos’ movement that will help re-establish a mini-museum at Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos.

This art collection drive is part of the 80th Founding Anniversary activities. After CST-R lost the Rev. Fr. Oscar dela Rosa Collection that was once housed in a mini-museum on the second-floor landing of the St. Augustine Building, the school is now aiming at putting up its own art collection once again.

Below are the guidelines.
