MANILA, Philippines – The opening ceremony of the 77th season of the UAAP will be "out of this world," said UAAP secretary treasurer Rod Roque of host school University of the East (UE).

"Napaka-out of this world ng aming opening ceremonies, ng production number," Roque told ABS-CBNnews.com on Wednesday.

But even Roque cannot describe what UE will present on opening day on July 12, as their choreographer is keeping everything a secret.

"'Yung choreographer namin, as of the moment, even us hindi kami makapanood kasi gusto niya, it’s a surprise, really. It's a surprise," he said. "Basta ang sabi lang niya sa amin, out of this world."

The opening ceremony will be held at the Araneta Coliseum, as opposed to the Mall of Asia Arena where the last two seasons have opened.

Roque said the Cubao venue was chosen because it was more accessible.

"Iniisip namin 'yung convenience," he said, pointing out that students from the universities will have a shorter commute to the Araneta Coliseum.

"Hindi lang naman pang opening ceremony siya, 'yung mga laro pa. So 'yung convenience, 'yun ang number one namin na inisip kung bakit namin ginusto sa Araneta," he added.
