It was never easy to become an IT professional, the learning and exploration in the IT-industry never stop. Good thing, the College of Computer Studies (CCS) of LPU molded me to become an innovative and creative IT professional. CCS opened opportunities for us to attend several seminars and workshops to discover the current trends in technology. They encouraged us to join university-wide and national IT competitions, to be competitive while improving our teamwork and collaboration skills. CCS also developed us to become young leaders by taking an active role in student organizations and activities to inspire and help more students. Lastly, CCS celebrates students’ successes by giving recognition and awards.

Steven Torralba, BSIT 2018

To be a successful Policeman was my dream when I entered my first year at the Lyceum of the Philippines University- Batangas. This University instilled discipline and gave students tools for their chosen career. During my college years as a Criminology student, I met excellent and competent professors who gave their limitless expertise and experiences to enable us to achieve whatever goals we have for the future. The most important thing that I have learned from them was to become passionate about all the things that I do and the desire to not stop in believing that I will achieve the highest peak of my career. Through the skills and knowledge acquired, I am always ready to become a leader and role model to the young ones now.

LPU opened a lot of opportunities for me in different bartending competitions which made my career and myself ready for the world. I was a 4-time National Champion of the Philippines for Flair bartending and Top 8 in the World for in the International Bartending Association (IBA) Word Flair bartending Competition held in Tokyo, Japan in 2016. Being a top flair bartender in the world was my dream and I thank the College of International Tourism and Hospitality Management for all the support I got when I was still a student. I previously worked as a Food and Beverage Executive at Mandarin Oriental Singapore, Head bartender at the Fat Prince in Singapore, and now an On-trade Specialist at Willian Grant and Sons Singapore Distribution Pte. Ltd. I manage over 200 accounts of their spirits and cocktail listing. William Grant and Sons is the biggest family-owned Whisky Company in the world. The company has received the highest accolade of Distiller of the Year from either the International Wine and Spirits Competition or the International Spirits Challenge 12 times in the last 13 years.

I gained my Nursing Foundation at Lyceum of the Philippines Batangas, from 2004-2008. What I love most about this institution is its heart for the needy. LPU never forgets to share its blessings to the less fortunate in the community through its Community Extension Program which I have actively participated in and was recognized for it during our commencement exercises.

Rodelando M. Leuterio Jr., BSN 2008

Back in 2006, I was one of those High School graduates who was dreaming to either become an engineer or accountant. I got selected to be a Student Assistant and was advised to either enroll in IT or Computer Science. I chose Computer Science and I did not regret that decision. I am who I am now because I was put on the right track. Lyceum of the Philippine University expects nothing less than the best from every student. Professors at this university are there not just to teach but also to inspire. They are compassionate and caring toward students. The staff members are excellent, and the rules help keep the school safe and in order. LPU has the best curriculum and facilities to help students learn. They will provide everything in order to make their students reach their full potential.

Joed G. Cueto, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science 2010

As I look back, I couldn’t be more thankful to God for letting me live my dream of working in an International Cruise Ship. It was only a blurred dream before, no assurance that after taking my degree program in Cruise Line Operations in Hotel Services that I will be given the chance to work as a Receptionist at one of the well-known Cruise Ships in Asia today. All of these blessings would never be possible without the help of LPU (Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas), which served as my second home for four years. This was the place that taught me how to become a professional Hospitality Practitioner. I will never forget all the times I spent at this wonderful university especially all of my professors as they honed e to become what I am today. I can justify that choosing LPU Batangas was the right choice for me and for my chosen career as they will not only give you quality education but would also develop your character with all the necessary traits to become professional in your chosen field. In LPU, you will not only learn your subjects objectively but you will be trained to apply it and test your skills to the limit.

As an alumna of BS Information Technology of the College of Computer Studies, I could say that LPU Batangas has not only molded my specialized skills but has built my confidence to prepare me for my career. During my college years, I was given the privilege to attend different school activities in and outside the country and these experiences have exposed me to greater knowledge and made me so inspired to pursue more in the Information Technology (IT) industry. LPU Batangas has been my school of choice for my college education and it has given me more than I could ask for to help me be to become a successful IT Practitioner. #ButiNaLangNagLyceumAko

Arian Mae Lontoc, BSIT 2015

On my first step at the front gate of this prestigious university, I wondered how my life would run knowing that I will encounter a diverse group of students who are good at almost everything. I asked myself, “Can I stand out in this crowd? Am I really capable to take the lead?” But there’s no turning back, I need to take this path. I was a Senior High student back then. I became a lot of things during my SHS years. I became a student-leader-performer. My leadership ability was tested and enhanced for I was given a chance to lead the Senior High Department as their Student Council President. Moreover, it did not stop there because I was also able to improve my skills in performing arts through acting and writing scripts and monologues as an active member of LPU-Stagers. Most especially, this university’s fire of fortitude enlightened me to see my worth not just a student but as a competitive young professional in my chosen field of specialization. And now, I still chose to take the lead as I am taking up Bachelor of Science in International Travel and Tourism Management which allows me to participate in community extension activities as a passionate leader and compete in various contests, representing both my college and LPU Batangas. I know that here in LPU, I won’t just be academically inclined, but I will also be morally and professionally upright.

Brent Roi N. Gutierrez, 1st Year BSITTM

Somebody once asked me if I would still choose to study in LPU-B if my circumstances were different back then and I consistently answered YES. Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas equipped me with the right tools and knowledge and since I didn’t get influenced by the notion of graduating in a well-known university that sometimes make fresh graduates a bit arrogant and overly complacent, I have the right attitude that helped me get where I am today. I am thankful and grateful to my Alma Mater along with all my teachers and professors who helped build that strong foundation of knowledge. Finally, I will always be proud to say “buti na lang nag Lyceum ako”.
