Gusting Campus Journalism Fellowship
The Gusting Campus Journalism Fellowship started in 2004 when the USA Publications was granted by the PIA-6 an exemption from joining COPRE for five years after winning its third Gawad Lopez Jaena for The Augustinian Mirror. It was a regional event where the staff members share their knowledge in campus journalism to fellow writers in the region. A few years after its launching, however, it stopped its operations due to lack of funding and time since the staff members also produce publications regularly.
San Ag Campus Press Awards
The San Ag Campus Press Awards also formed for the same reason as the establishment of the Gusting Campus Journalism Fellowship. It catered to recognize the outstanding publications both in high school and in college throughout the region as well as the departmental publications of the University. Today, it only caters exclusively for Augustinian schools and the different colleges of the University.
St. Augustine Essay Writing Contest
The St. Augustine Essay Writing contest is regularly organized by the USA Publications as part of the Patron Saint’s Day celebration of the University every August. Students from the different colleges and departments of the University write a themed essay on-the-spot. Winners for both English and Filipino categories are recognized.
