Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao

Whizzy and Dash

Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao is proudly represented by two school mascots named Whizzy and Dash. The significance of these mascots reflects the values and aspirations of the institution that are embedded in the Malayan Hymn.

They present the vibrancy of the Mapúa Malayan community that sparks through rapid and dynamic changes at the central Davao Region, and the unity of the members of the institution – from the students, faculty, staff, to the neighboring communities, local partners, and other international linkages.

Whizzy, the college mascot, stands to represent the wit of the institution learners with respect to the outcomes-based education that is promulgated in the school’s mission and vision. The name “whiz” denotes rapid flying or moving that symbolizes how the Mapúa MCM education system soars high above the conventional approach to the 21st-century learning process. Whiz also pertains to the name “wizard” who is believed to symbolically possess magical powers that bring about multiple intelligences to every persistent and gifted learner.

Whizzy also flaunts his great skill in managing something that is extremely difficult. He signifies a great deal of persistence, hard work, and active collaboration that are exhibited by the learners in order to achieve a particular goal for the common good. These characters are prioritized by Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao which is effectively carried out in the academic teaching.

Dash, the senior high school mascot, highlights quick adaptability in the changing times. This adaptability refers to the modern and transformative learning process where 21st-century learners are currently exposed to. Aside from being swift to adapt, it also pertains to a great sense of flexibility that dominates over their typical academic, behavioral, and attitudinal needs.

Dash shows a spirit of enthusiasm that depicts the ideal learning environment every student deserves. Dash also connotes breaking the bond of uncertainties among learners, faculty, and the administration. He hurls optimism in understanding the complex structures of various academic disciplines, and encouragement in using state-of-the-art technology in delivering desired learning outcomes.

Whizzy and Dash wear a common theme of ideas representing the color blue which symbolizes loyalty, strength, wisdom, and trust. Along with that, they carry accenting shades such as dark blue for knowledge, power, integrity, and professionalism; green for ambition, stability, and Mapúa MCM’s strong advocacy towards our love of nature; and red for passion, vibrance, and Mapúa MCM’s drive to always do more.

These values are highly principled in Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao in general, and they reflect how life-long learning using 21st-century methods and skills serve as the living and striking legacy of the premiere Mapúa Malayan institution not just in Davao Region, but in the entire Mindanao.
