Sa talumpati ng Alkalde, kanyang nasambit na ang Pambansang Wika ay “ sana’y gamitin natin hindi lamang bilang lengwahe ng pananalita at panulat ng nagkakaisang Pilipino kundi bilang lengwahe ng ating puso mula dito hanggang sa pinakamalayong sulok ng mundo na may Pilipino”.

Pinakatampok na bahagi ng selebrasyon ay ang pagtatanghal ng kagalingan ng bawa’t college department at ang pagpili ng Lakambini at Lakan 2009 ng unibersidad.
