◈ Studied BS in Marine Biology
◈ At MSU Gensan
◈ Graduated 2015

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It's the nearest university to my place that offered Marine Biology.

list bulletAbout MSU Gensan: MSU-General Santos is near to Sarangani Bay that is why there are a lot of areas to explore. Everything is good and challenging, because students are taught to strive hard and the diversity of people who enrol in the University is rich. Professors in the Marine Biology program graduated from reputable institutions. Unfortunately, the college doesn't have diving gears and good laboratory (we have in another college).

list bulletMy current job: Professionally, I work as a project-based Research Assistant in a Marine Foraging study of Arizona State University, USA in Sarangani Province, Philippines. I identify the marine resources that gleaners collected along the tidal flats and compute the caloric return rate of every gleaner. Since my work is flexitime, I can also give enough time to my advocacy work, which is marine conservation, mainly marine turtles.

◈ Studied BS in Accountancy
◈ At MSU Gensan
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: Because of the affordable tuition. I got admitted as an academic scholar. According to my friends, among the schools in Gensan, this is perceived to be the one that provide quality education the most (not true).

list bulletAbout MSU Gensan: Well the environment was hell. It is located in a Sahara. When it's hot, it IS scorching hot. When it rains, it pours and so muddy.

The classrooms were not air-conditioned - expected from a public school with a very cheap tuition. Chairs and tables were full of graffiti and scribble. Buildings/classrooms are located far from each other so you'll develop muscles in your legs from your everyday treading in the university.

Cashier and registrar pips - not all - need re-orientation on their roles and about government services.

My professors (except 3 of them) in major subjects should be fired. They're not teaching - not even under Socratic method. They're full of incompetence and has a record absenteeism. They're expecting we know already everything but the reality is - we didn't really get any input from them to stir our brains. The university should have hired the books - not them.

list bulletMy current job: Auditor

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After passing the board exam, it took me one day to find a job.
