Every year, our PCN program is viewed by our entire cast as well as those in the audience. Buying ad space in our program gives great publicity not only during the show but for years to come because while it serves as a program to the audience, it serves as a yearbook for our cast and to AkbayanSJSU.

If you are interested in having an ad for your club, organization, event, business etc. email Ann Dela Cruz at

Rates are estimates:
Quarter page: $40

Starting on Monday, April 7th, up to Thursday, April 10th, come to the Akbayan table between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. dressed in the theme of the day to show off your family spirit. Be ready to take pictures and don’t forget to use the hashtag #KAAMPSpiritWeek!

The themes of each day are as follows:

Monday: Dress for success day – Dress in your finest suits, blazers, button-ups, etc. and look spiffy!

Tuesday: Ading Appreciation Day/Sports Day – Show your Adings some love and bring them a little gift/token of appreciation to the table! Also come dressed in your favorite sports team’s gear!

Wednesday: Kuya/Ate Appreciation Day/Rep Your Fam Day – Give your Kuyas/Ates the chance to feel like an Ading again and leave them a small gift/token of appreciation at the table. Also dress to rep your fam (family shirts or match with family)!

Thursday: PCN Day – Come to the table in any past PCN shirts. If you do not have any, you may come in costume or even dressed under this year’s PCN theme–the Jazz Age!

On Friday, join us at Flickinger Park from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. as families compete in KAAMP Olympics. We’re incorporating different events such as a water balloon toss, a watermelon eating contest, and a basketball tournament! Also, this is a potluck event and the family who brings the best food will win the cook-off competition of the olympics!

We hope to see you all there!

Looking for a fun way to get back into the swing of things here at school? Come join Akbayan and play in our annual game of AK Assassin

First, email Kayekaye Magpantay at “” if you are interested in playing. A simple, “My name is John Doe and I am interested in playing AK Assasin” is fine. And send me an attached photo of yourself. Then you must pay $2 at the table. After she receives all the e-mails, she will then distribute your targets. Once given your target, you must then find a way to “kill” them –not necessarily, just pretend.. with a spoon!

If you haven’t played before, the rules are simple:

1. In order for your “kill” to count, no one must see you kill your target.
2. You can only attack them from the chest and below.
3. **It must not be a harmful attack!!**
4. You can hire a hitman to kill your target as well.
5. Once you are killed, your killer then receives your target and proceeds.
6. In order to respawn, you must pay $1 within 30 MINUTES of dying. The second time will be $2 and so forth.

The prizes are TBD, but the winner will be revealed at the End of the Year Banquet. Follow the AK Assassin instagram as well to keep up with who has been killed and who is still alive.

**The last day to sign up is this Saturday at 11:59PM and AK ASSASSIN will start at Super Sunday!**

For more information, please contact Kayekaye Magpantay at

Let the games begin >:)
