Quantum is a tradition of Xavier Computer Enthusiasts' League (XCEL) of Xavier University since 1994. It is a pure competition participated by different schools in Mindanao.

Quantum is composed of two segments. First are the MS Paint and the Photoshop Competition which will be participated by one grade school and one high school student as representatives of each school. Second is the Quiz Show which is exclusive for high school students consisting of two bona fide students from each school.

The City-Wide IT Convention of the Ateneo Information Management Society (AIMS) started in the year 2002 and will commemorate its 6th year of gathering the IT students of Cagayan de Oro City not just to test their competence but to guide them with additional knowledge and develop their skills in Information Technology.
This is usually a two-day and one-night activity which comprises of sessions and discussions on IT-related topics with distinguished resource speakers.
