◈ Studied BS in Office Administration
◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It is my dream school, hearing this school even in my elementary years makes me dream of it as my future school when I reach my college years. I was elementary by that time when I always hear my brother talks about it because he is a college student by that time. When my father wants to go to Valencia City to look for a living I always insist to come with him because we will be passing the University I dream of studying in the future. I was just 10 years old by that time, a grade four pupil who loves to play always but my mind is fixed on finishing a Degree to my dream university. As the years pass more knowledge and new amazing things about my dream university is being spread and it gives me more interests and make me love this university to it's peak. After graduating from highschool my happiness on entering my dream university is like given it's light but certain happenings drag me down to the lowest level of my imagination ever can drop down. My mother is always a doubtful person,

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: The University atmosphere is purely nature friendly because it is an institution that greatly support a clean and green environment, a school that is a suitable place for new graduates to study because of it's harmonious aura that gives students chance to study on all corner of the university; in the shade of the tree to the solemn and peaceful parts of the grasses. Focusing your eyes to the growing trees and absorbing the power of the nature can give you extraordinary appeal to the world.

The professors totally differ their teaching skills from each other from; the strict, the super strict, the average, the terror, the horror, the never mind the student, the bond with the student, and lastly the teacher like a student. Those professors that I encounter in my four years in study. My favorite instructor the late Mrs. Maria Puresa Sajulga who serve as our very supportive and loving professor that when we learn that she died it makes us totally down like we lost our very beloved one.

The university facilities are still functioning and being used by the students and the staff even if it is beyond it's depreciation years and it's useful years has been totally consumed. Yes, it is a University that mainly helps the poor family to let their children come to school with a low tuition but those tuition given by the students still cannot compensate for the renovation of the building and maintenance of the facilities. The government must give more support to the institution to help them develop the school and give more facilities that the students can use to it's learning.

list bulletMy current job: For now, I still don't have the job but I'm on the process of submitting applications to banks and companies.

◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I chose this school because this is the one of the top preforming University in the region. Many students from far places chose to study here for standard and affordability of tuition fees. One of the lowest tuition fees rate in the region. And it has been popular school of producing top graduates and companies are giving priorities in it's graduates.

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: The school ambiance is very homely and comfortable. Very suitable for learning and the surroundings are quite and peaceful. One of qualities I don't like is the separate buildings for different departments and you have to walk through if you have classes between departments. But anyway, it provides exercise as well.

My professors and instructors, well some are very strict, and always imposes pressures to study hard. But in general, they were all very dedicated to their field of academic expertise. I remember my professor who drop a student who caught cheating. One of my favorite professors always motivated us everyday, He is like a preacher who always cast his sermons on us. I like some although I hate some of them.. :)

◈ Studied BS in Office Administration
◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: Because it is a school known for it's quality and a school for the poor where I did pass their entrance examination.

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: Very close to nature, you can see a lot of green trees and green grasses and a mountain. It has clean and fresh air. The professors/instructors are very knowledgeable in their own respective field of expertise which makes it more challenging to meet up to their expectations. Air conditioned rooms are only for the computer labs. During my time, I guess there were enough computers. We have university library, there's a lot of old books. There are a lot of places where students can rest and socialize. Our school has a small market to cater to some of the needs of the students. Students can sit, relax, or study under the shade of old big trees. Our school has plenty of land.

list bulletMy current job: Presently I am working at the Municipal Agrarian Reform Office at Don Carlos, Bukidnon as a JO-Clerk. Doing clerical works, preparing bills, filing and records management and typing/encoding data.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After about six months, I was hired as an Augmentation Support Staff at our Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office at Don Carlos, Bukidnon. The job was only good for three months.

◈ Studied BS in Biology
◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2003

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: Central Mindanao University is located in Musuan, Maramag Bukidnon. For me it is one of the best agricultural schools in the Philippines. College of Agriculture, College of Forestry and College of Veterinary Medicine were being recognized as Center of Excellence by Commission on Higher Education and BS Biology and BS Mathematics of College of Arts and Sciences as Center of Development. CMU is one of the schools which provide cheap tuition fees and it is really a big help for those less fortunate individuals with intelligence to finish a course and will help them to have good future ahead. I like the atmosphere in CMU because it is surrounded by mountains and trees and it is cold. It is like a little Baguio City in Mindanao. There is no pollution and our means of transportation inside the campus is a motor vehicle for far colleges like forestry and college of nutrition. I can say that the university has good facilities especially when it comes to education. Machine equipment and laboratory instruments were being checked and changed if there were any damages. It has a big university library and college libraries to cater all the research works of the students. University Convention Center was also built as a function hall like victory balls, graduation ceremonies and other big gatherings. CMU has also a dairy farm and everyday they will deliver fresh milk inside teacher's village, college park and campus. Fruits were also marketed at a low price. You can find good dormitories inside the campus and security guards were there 24 hours roving inside the campus.

list bulletMy current job: I am working as a licensed nurse since I was not able to proceed medicine after my graduation due to financial constraints.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After my graduation, my father offered me to proceed in studying BS Nursing since we were on financial crisis that time. They cannot afford me to study medicine because it is a very expensive course and it is worth a million to finish that not to include the specialization and internships. Since I am the eldest I gave way and let my other siblings study and grabbed the chance to proceed nursing after I graduated.

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: My mother decided that I will be sent at CMU because it provide quality education. At that time I don't have any choice since she told me that if I couldn't pass the entrance exam I will not be sent to school.

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: Central Mindanao University is indeed an Academic Paradise of the South. Green environment, fresh air and beautiful scenery. Distant from City so it is away from social activities. In terms of our Instructor and Professor, they are really such a great mentors to any student they handled with. Students are really put into situation were they could develop their inner capabilities and brilliant minds. No graduates in CMU who were not brilliant minded not just in subject but also how to face life.

CMU may not be that lucky to have an ideal facilities since it is lack of facilities that couldn't accommodate the growing numbers of student but instructor find it's way. We do have creepy libraries, but the knowledge that it could provide to each student could be general knowledge. If you stroll around the university which you could not just walk since colleges are walking distant you need to have a ride especially when you are running late. Many students will be seen studying under the cottages and under the trees since it is very quiet that only chirping of the birds you could hear. I could say that Central Mindanao University is any students ideal University.

list bulletMy current job: Teller at a Distributor Company. It involves money. Receiving remittances from agents and disbursing money since I am the Petty Cash Fund teller also.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I found a job after 3 months.

◈ Studied AB in Psychology
◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It was my parents' decision to study in this University. At first, I really didn't want to study here. My permanent residence was 10 hours away from CMU and I didn't think I can risk that far just to study here, anyway there are a lot of prestigious colleges and universities near my place so I really did not get the point of my parents sending me here.

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: The school was amazing. It's location perhaps is in the middle of a province but it's worth it. During my time, I only paid 90 pesos per unit. l just had to pay 3000-4000 in a semester. And when you're lucky enough to become an academic scholar you'll just be paying 300 pesos to zero for your tuition. The ambiance was so peaceful. You're close to nature.
I was lucky to become a part of a singing group, the CMU Music Society. Everyone was so approachable and friendly, so adjusting to the new environment wasn't that hard for me. CMU offers a lot of organizations so your college life will never be boring.
The Professors? Well, some of them are really tough but for a reason. You'll surely get what you deserve.

list bulletMy current job: I'm currently a Quality Assurance supervisor in a BPO company with specification of monitoring calls from our Philippine branch and as well as our domestic shops in the U.S.
It's not really related to my course but I think it is somehow connected because I am dealing with different kinds of people. I have to know the people's attitudes and behavior first before giving them the real feedback.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It look me less than a month after I graduated to find a job. But my brother, who's also a CMU alumni, landed a job even before he graduated.

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: This school is one of the best universities here in Mindanao. I heard that their graduates were not having difficulties in finding jobs, some says if you are applying such job and you are a graduate in CMU, your application has more priority.

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: It's not really that friendly I think, well, in my own opinion. I experienced waiting in the bottom of a long line of students enrolling and when I am on the top my sweat really flows down in my eyes because of the strict admin.

When the classes started, the professors, well not all but most were really strict and evil! few were nice. I remember running out of breath to the top on a sloppy ground just to catch up the class but when I got there the professor won't let me in because I was 5 mins Late.

◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: There were a lot of graduate students there saying that landing a job is very easy once you're a product of CMU. It's a popular school, and most of my classmates in high school were bragging about studying there. The school was very productive and good. So why shouldn't I?,

list bulletAbout Central Mindanao University: Well, atmosphere was not that welcoming, really, their staff were not that polite and kind like on the other schools, maybe because the admin thinks that students are flooding in their school so why bother themselves on being nice? right? - don't be bothered but that's what I'm thinking.

The professors - their teaching skills are great, well, some professors... But surely most of them were very strict on project deadlines, examinations, late students during their classes and students participating in class discussions.


list bulletMy current job: I'm an area supervisor of a big company, but it's not long time since I passed my resignation. I used to manage many employees, the area sales and the kind and number of products delivered on various stores.
