◈ At City University Of Pasay (formerly Pamantasan Ng Lungsod Ng Pasay)
◈ Graduated 2007

list bulletAbout my college education: Being a Public School of course we encountered some problems like where we can conduct our class everytime that we are in the school and not in the hospital. Sometimes we have to search for vacant classrooms so that we can do our classes there. On the lighter side it was a pleasant experience having most of our class in the hospital (Pasay General Hospital). We feel that we belong there.
As a student you need to be patient, know how to deal with problems.
