“The Tryouts” focuses on the lives of your most hardworking student-athletes. We take a look at the current 4-time reigning champions of the UAAP Cheerdance Competition, the NU Pep Squad. Part 1: The Brand ‘NU’ Squad.

That said, the NU Pep Squad emphasizes on mental toughness and good attitude as their main priorities in choosing who makes the cut.
