The UP Cookout started as a celebration for the ouster of a former dean in 1987, the UP Cookout serves as a reminder of the students’ victory over the plan of the dean to abolish the Student Council. It was a culmination of the many years of struggle against authoritative oppression. The Cookout started as a simple, intimate gathering of the UP Cebu community. Students actually cooked food and discussed politics. It gradually evolved to a huge production complete with stage, sounds and lights.
