B.S. Medical Technology is the best preparatory course for Medicine. It is a fact.  From an Engineering University where I spent a year to fulfill my father’s wish, I decided to transfer to LPU-Batangas (then, Lyceum of the Philippines). I chose to be a game-changer! I was able to explore and stretch my boundaries, especially with the self-resiliency mindset – adaptation in the ’80s and ’90s.  If I didn’t become a Lycean, and eventually a Registered Medical Technologist, I would have missed the golden opportunity of connecting the dots of my passion, from expectations to reality, and to what I have humbly accomplished now. Yes, there could have been another journey perhaps; however, I am not certain if I will be this content and happy.

Carlo G. Espina, Founding President, Pioneer Clinical Laboratory & Medical Clinic, Inc.

During my first year in LPU, we were encouraged by our professors to watch one of the most prestigious pageants in the campus, the Mr. and Ms. LPU pageant. That motivated me to make pageantry my passion. I was hailed as Ms. CEAS in 2016 and indeed, it boosted my self-confidence which enabled me to go out of my comfort zone. Pageants in LPU opened a lot of opportunities which I never even expected. For me, competing in pageants was not easy as it requires patience, perseverance, trust and hard work but, it was all worth it! That’s why I think with those opportunities and once in a lifetime experiences, LPU molded me to be a strong individual and pushed me to always believe in myself no matter how hard things are, to always aim for excellence and to be God fearing. And as the newly crowned Bb. Lungsod ng Batangas 2019, I know that I can face anything with confidence, bravery and faith no matter what the odds may be because these are the qualities that LPU has taught me. I will forever be thankful for the experiences and all the learning I gained in LPU.

Jeanette L. Reyes, AB Communication 4th Year

After obtaining my BS and Masters I could definitely say that LPU does not only lead the business of creating strong minds and providing quality education, but it has also been a molder of young men and women through its outstanding and motivational instructors. And so in the words of Sir Isaac Newton, “if I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. LPU is proud of its many traditions, but the one I find most exciting is its long-standing tradition of excellence. #ButiNaLangNagLyceumAko

Capt. Angelo U. Panganiban, Youngest Licensed Master Mariner in the Philippines

I took up AB Mass Communication, a program which not only contributes to my mental and physical growth but also shapes my whole personality as a person.  Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas provides big opportunities to all the students. This is where I gained the values of being a true professional individual, a good student and a competitive leader. LPU-B also made me realize that being academically good should be combined with having the values of humility, integrity and diligence.

To my fellow graduates, we wouldn’t have reached this point if it were not for our families, friends, and professors who molded us into who we are today. Because of them, all the challenges we faced made us stronger. We will ever be grateful to the Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas, for preparing us to face real life and to be competent, committed, values-oriented individuals.

Laine Samantha G. Virtucio’s Valedictory Address – Summer Graduation July 2015

    LPU focuses not only on academics but also on the enhancement of skills and talents. This is a training ground for future leaders, professionals, and beauty queens, too! Before, I just thought that I would always be on the classroom or maybe in the canteen and that would be all. I’ve prepared myself with that routine because joining organizations that enriches talents whether singing or dancing was not for me. I’m a frustrated singer and a terrible dancer so I’ve got nowhere to go until I was brought to somewhere different. I was chosen by my classmates to be the representative for our course for Ms. Freshman. At first, I was doubtful because I’ve never really joined pageants. I was like, “Can I really do this?” I never really had an idea about that thing. In relation with this, I had a little preparation for that pageant. I have to reduce the food that I eat, especially rice. This thing was the most difficult adjustment I made. I love to eat! I also need to learn how to pose and how to walk properly and all those things. I knew that I wasn’t capable and prepared enough. I felt so nervous before, during, and even after the pageant. My nerves were shaking. I even thought that I would faint because of such pressure and nervousness but I entrusted everything to God and let Him guide me. I just said that He willed it, so be it. I felt shocked when I was declared as Miss Freshman. It was not totally what I wished for. Honestly, I only hoped to be included in the top 5 and nothing more. But what happened was beyond that. It was something to be thankful of. This was one of the most memorable events that I will forever cherish as long as I live.

Ms. Freshman 2014 shares her LPU story

Gloomy as it may seem but my life had a sudden twist of fate. My life in LIMA at first was not that great. Funny as it may seem but yes, I could say that it was quite boring. As I go along counting the days that passed, many things seemed to unfold. I will never forget the moment when LIMA needed to pick a representative for LPU’s Mr. and Ms. Freshmen 2014. I was shocked when I was chosen to represent our college after the screening. What more when I was hailed as Mr. Freshman, it was indeed surreal. I won not for the reason that I am the best, but I believe I was the one who competed with full confidence guided by a gym full of supporters and personal prayers. I’ve learned so much more than I expected in that competition. Not only did it strengthen my skills in people-relation and public speaking, but I also acquired new knowledge of elegance and social graces to positively represent LIMA in public events. I not only became more involved in the university activities, but I also was able to reach out to other freshmen. Lending a hand to the student council of LIMA, seems to be a foreshadowing of things to come.  It will forever be a worthwhile experience because the competition’s journey does not stop there, I am excited for the coming years as I continue to become more involved in LPU’s never ending fun activities even after my title has been passed on. It seems vague, but really every time I go back to the time when my parents and I kept on arguing about what to take up for college, it taught me the importance of – Listening. We should take a chance to listen to our parents because they know what is best for us. The best things in life are not those rare moments that are exceptional, but those everyday moments, the routine that we create and the decisions we make. And today, being part of LPU is really what I am thankful for. I never thought of finding friends inside the college but also family that will surely support me all the way. Finding the right language to describe my first year’s journey in LPU has always been a challenge for me. I suppose I’ll end with exactly what I was hoping to find – a “happy roller coaster feeling.” And will prove to everyone that forever does exist. Because I will “FOREVER” be grateful of being a Lycean. Yes, FOREVER.

Mr. Freshman 2014 shares his LPU Story

But what really made LPU feel like home are the officials, teachers and staff who treated everyone like family. Yes, surviving college requires more effort than it does in high school but I know everything that I experience within the university, be it good or not so good, will help me in the future. I am very fortunate to have such dedicated professors who help us become passionate and motivated future dental practitioners. Aside from the academic programs, LPU has organizations that offer a wide range of activities to spice up one’s college life. As for me, I joined the school paper (Phoenix) and became a staff artist for one year, I also played badminton in the PISTAKASAN event and I was also able to represent my department in the university-wide debate and won as the best debater. I also had the chance of becoming a student leader as I was the president of my class since 2011 until now. I also took part in the Lyceum Supreme Student Council (A.Y. 2012-2013) and participated in numerous community extension activities. Those kinds of activities surely awakened the leader within me and ignited my desire to help other people. Moreover, I also confidently learned public speaking through hosting numerous events within the University. Aside from all those, pageants are common in LPU and I was lucky enough to experience and win some titles. I was Mr. Freshmen 2011. In my junior year I became Mr. Dentistry, and finally, Mr. LPU 2014. Responsibilities along with these titles are great and expectations of being a good role model are high but through the help and guidance of my advisers, teachers, mentors and friends, I know I was able to fulfill my duties with flying colors. I learned new things about myself, things I never thought I was capable of doing thus making me a better person.
