About 189 NSTP students took part in the two-day tree planting activity conducted in coordination with the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of the City of Calamba.

The successful hosting of the 11th Gawad Tanglaw stemmed from the collaboration and cooperation of faculty, administrators, students, employees, and all stakeholders of the Colegio. The SEAS took pride in spearheading the project.
The event, held at the dela Casas stage on March 7, 2013, was attended by media personalities from print media and broadcast – both TV and radio. The attendees admire the ambiance of the school, the hospitable nature of the Letranites, and the knight statues that were given as token of appreciation. With the support of Rev. Fr. Honorato C. Castigador, O.P. and other administrators, ample resources were provided to honored guests, awardees, administrators, faculty, and students of the Colegio. The Gawad Tanglaw (Gawad Tagapanuring mga Akademisyan ng Aninong Gumagalaw) was founded by SEAS faculty, Dr. Romeo Flaviano I. Lirio, a staunch supporter and an avid viewer of Filipino films. With the help of his peers and friends in the academe such as Dr. Rustica C. Carpio and Dr. Jaime C. Ang, among others, the Gawad Tanglaw became one of the prestigious award-giving bodies in the Philippines.
