Q: What's Goodphil?

A: Goodphil is a three day competition held during spring break between the FSAs of Texas universities. The competition is split up into two parts: dancing and sports events. The dance portion includes cultural, spirit, and modern dancing. The sports portion includes football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, and softball.

Q: What are Kuyas, Ates, and Adings?

A: In Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines, "Kuya" means older brother, "Ate" means older sister, and "Ading" means younger sibling.  In FSA, we have a Kuya/Ate/Ading program where we pair the new members with older members. This allows them to become more familiar with our organization and UTD. We hold Kuya/Ate events throughout the year such as lunches, dinners, rock climbing, bowling, etc.
