Being in school, students are expected to learn facts, theories, and other things that were written in books. LPU B-CITHM is different, for me, it was extraordinary. I did not only gain all the basic knowledge and skills that I needed for my culinary career. I gained a lot more than that, through competitions, I became more persevering, patient, and diligent. Now, in my field of work as an I-Flight Chef, I learned that you need a lot of these traits for you to survive inside the kitchen. More than that being a student and having worked with LPU B- CITHM I gained what I consider to be my second family. Behind every great dream and goal, there is a greater God that will always guide us.

Seven years ago, BSPT was a five-year program at the Lyceum of the Philippines University – Batangas. This university especially the Physical Therapy department honed my knowledge and skills in evaluating, assessing, and treating my patients with different conditions and cases. LPU – B was able to affiliate us on high quality academic and clinical- experienced hospitals and centers. Indeed, it trained me to deliver high quality and satisfactory Physical Therapy services to the patients. Our PT professors were the epitome of competency, commitment, credibility, collaborative skills, and caring attitudes. Thus, made me a true Lycean! Also, I was fortunate to find genuine friends and colleagues who were my classmates before.

LPU is the right institution where you realize that your dream is reachable. Very generous to the students who are willing to learn, making sure that the graduates are well rounded in their chosen industry to become a very successful professional. LPU is intentionally designed to develop your intellect across multiple disciplines, as well as critical life skills, professional capabilities, and key aspects of your character. Your undergraduate education needs to be as multidimensional as you are. It should challenge you academically, expose you to a diversity of global cultures, and enable you to develop the broad knowledge and practical skills needed to solve the most complex issues of our time. My valuable experience in LPU-Batangas was when we had community service at the SHL Gawad Kalinga Village. This experience made me realize that I was very fortunate because my parents can provide the basic needs for my family and others cannot since they don’t have the means even for the most basic of things like food, clothing, and shelter. After that, I became more motivated to do well in school. Every day is a valuable experience as students were honed to be globally competitive since the institution sets the bar higher when it comes to excellence. I am who I am because of the knowledge I got from school. Thank you LPU for teaching me how to reach my dream. The culture that I saw…being humble and always have passion for what you do when I was studying were the main reasons why I always stand out from the rest of my co-workers. I owe my success to my beloved LPU family now I am a Resident ManagerofRaintree Hospitality Group, Boracay. Continue building the legacy of leading young minds to the frontier of the future.  #ButiNaLangNagLyceumAko

My dream of becoming a police officer means I have to be equipped with confidence, knowledge, and skills to become one. My full scholarships indeed served as a bridge for me to pursue my higher education and become part of the Police Force. Being a “resident scholar” then means I must maintain my grades and other obligations to keep on track. And in 2005, I graduated Magna Cum Laude and earned my bachelor’s degree in criminology.

It was not an easy journey, but as it turned out, my college years in LPU was one of the greatest chapters of my life. I was not what you would call a model student, but I enjoyed every moment of it. We had many great quality professors, ranging from practicing doctors of medicine to professors with lengthy experience on their resumes. There was a balance between academics, sports, and cultural activities that I got to participate in. The last year of college, which was a 12-month internship from three different hospitals was the most challenging and rewarding experience. This was the peak of our learning curve. This is where we put the theories we learned from school into practice. I am so lucky to have rotation duty in some of the best hospital affiliations: Batangas Regional Hospital (now BatMC), Philippine Air Force Hospital in Pasay, and the National Orthopedic Hospital (now Philippine Orthopedic Center). It was then that I realized the importance of Medical Technology which I chose to pursue and felt pride and honor knowing that my future job plays a very important role in a patient’s treatment.

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.

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.
