Controversies[edit]

  • 1999 - The dispute between Ugnayan and The Adamson Chronicle(TAC) arise when former Editor-in-Chief of TAC Ms. Celia Clave sent a staff writer to spy on Erwin Luste, a TAC staff writer because of his involvement with Ugnayan, which TAC viewed to be an admin-run paper.[3]
  • 2002 - In a regular column of The Adamson Chronicle, it was stated that columnists of Ugnayan cannot write substantial article and cannot feed the minds of its readers. This thought was condemned by the then editor-in-chief Dennis Palma, but no official statement had been released.
  • 2004 - The Adamson Chronicle spoofed Ugnayan in their comic edition of Adamson Kornikel calling Ugnayan staffs as "trying hard writers wearing big IDs".
