◈ Studied BSBA major in Marketing
◈ At Mindanao State University
◈ Graduated 2006

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: My school may not be the best university in the world in terms of facilities. Being in a state university in the country where I live in, the campus was not up to par to current standards. Even so, the professors were probably the best in our province when it comes to teaching. There were those who would make your life miserable but this made me realized that everything they've done made me the person I am today, independent and someone who are not afraid to take risks.
The atmosphere was great. It was more like I was studying with mother nature. I usually enjoy the scenery outside our classroom, more like a live footage of an award winning national geographic documentary of the safari, that is, a school full of magnificent trees and farm animals.

list bulletMy current job: Currently, I am a Sales Tax Specialist in a 500 fortune international manufacturing company.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me 6 months.

◈ Studied BS in Social Work
◈ At Mindanao State University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: Studying in Mindanao State University under the the Social Work Department of College of Public Affairs spells survival of the fittest, passion, hope, and preparation. It is well-known fact from both the students and the alumni that everyone in the campus should live as if he/she is combating for every challenges of student life. Most, if not totally all, would choose to be practical, that is, detaching himself/herself from the "luxuries" of life while putting into priority the responsibilities of being a student of the university. Choosy students will definitely outcast from the true blooded MSUAN (calling for both MSU Student and an alumnus).

Education is indeed great in quality. Though the university itself is not that advanced for the needed facilities, one can clearly sense the initiatives coming from both the faculty members and the students on how they should respond amidst the situation.

Becoming a student in MSU would give you a true privilege to act with people whose ethnic denomination is different from yours. You will indeed become a student of other culture/s thus becoming sensitive to their ethnicity. Respect would become your "food" for everyday and by this you will come to know that other people whose perspective, values and culture different from you are also important and have an equal share from the benefits of human rights.
For the most part of our being students in the department and the university, it is the experience that would teach us more about best practices in life.

Most from us who were given one of a kind experience as we were engaged in widening perspectives on human development work during college days could tell how fruitful it was to be the students in the university in general and the department in particular. Modesty aside, our mentors are honed with specific skills, knowledge and experiences affirmed on the way they share these attributes to their students. Their sharing of knowledge to the students are reflective of values which are essential not because we would become "professional" change agents soon but because we are human beings who need to behave as none other than the human beings.

Faculty members in the department always emphasize the importance of learning through experience activities in the school. In fact, when one becomes a student in the department, he/she will surely be engaged in various activities which are distinct to the transactions of every faculty member in the department. The students are also taught to strengthen the commitment and engagement of potential partners/stakeholders in the conduct of department's social work related activities such as lecture-forum, seminars, etc. And during community outreach activity. With these experiences, one would be exposed on various learnings could only be brought about by actual engagement on those activities.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working as a City Link Officer in Malaybalay City, under the Department of Social Welfare and Development's (DSWD) poverty-alleviation program on Conditional Cash Transfer commonly known as Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After knowing the result of the Board Exam for Social Workers given last June 2012 (from which I fortunately passed) I started applying for job last July 2012 and hired sometime in August 2012. So it took me four months before I got my first job as a City Link Officer in DSWD Field Office 10.

◈ Studied BS in Social Work
◈ At Mindanao State University
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I choose MSU particularly main campus since it's the only university that my parents could afford with the tuition fee and miscellaneous. Food and cottage rent was not expensive. The cold weather, golf course and lake overview was also a plus factor.

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: The ambiance is conducive to learning since the campus is not noise polluted and everywhere you look the scene is relaxing. During my stay in the university, we had curfews at 7:00pm that was not a problem since I learned time management and self-discipline.

The instructors were the best! They were motivated and passionate in teaching the students their forte. They made it sure that they are able to regularly come in class on time. Their requirements challenges us to be serious and dedicated in our respective courses and that learning does not stop.

There are some buildings that are lacking since more students are enrolling each year. As of now, they are constructing new facilities in every college to replace the old buildings. Comfort rooms are available but not 'comfortable'. The libraries were okay and favorite spot during exam week. The only problem is the long ques during enrollment and difficulty getting school papers such as Diploma that took one year to get. Internet connection in the area is slow at some times but that doesn't stop the students in excelling.

list bulletMy current job: Currently working as a Project Development Officer II (PDO2) at the Department of Social Welfare and Development under the Pantawid program.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took four months before I was hired.

◈ Studied BS in Information Technology
◈ At Mindanao State University
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: My school, our school is a very strategic place for students. The professors are very innovative. They always provide and instill the students with new knowledge and principles.

The atmosphere is so ideal aside from having a cold climate as its normal climate. Students have the benefits of having a good air conditioning during their study time.

The facilities are well accommodating. We have a 2 stories library that would suffice numerous students and a wide golf course at the back of the library as an alternative study place for students who like to have a relax atmosphere. The golf course is so wide and because it is not frequently use by golfers a lot of students love to hang out there and some to have a plenty of time to relax, and others to have a quit place to study. We have also laboratories enough to hold and accommodate classes. There are also swimming pools, a wide oval for intramural. A grandstand enough to hold hundreds of students. A gym, a very spacious gym, the Demaporo Gym. And also everything that a student needs are there in inside university. The market center is inside the school. So, there's no need for the student to go anywhere else.

list bulletMy current job: I am a freelance programmer right now. I prefer to be self-employed. However, their is a part of me that wish to be in a company.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After I graduate I didn't had a chance to find a job, but luckily a company owner found me and ask me to make a program, a software to be used by his company.

◈ Studied BS in Psychology
◈ At Mindanao State University
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It has been one of the top universities and a prestigious one here in our place.

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: MSU seemd like it's a place or a university lost in time-- unlike most schools, the place is quiet (curfew was 8 PM), the facilities were outdated and place in general gives me the serene, country feel where time flies slower compared to the surrounding cities. However, the slow pace was quite a contrast to our classes. The professors set really high standards and rarely spoon feeds the lectures/lessons. We had to keep up as the meter sticks are high and the expectations great, perhaps to keep the reputation as one of the best state universities.

list bulletMy current job: Independent Contractor at ODesk.
I work as a freelancer online, doing projects on a diverse range of tasks -- from data entry to SEO

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me less than a year, but my first job was not at all connected to my field of study. My first job was technical support for printers and PC.

◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: Generally this is not my chosen school, yet later on knowing that the students in this university are financially unstable yet are still pursuing because of intelligence and perseverance I take up their exam and fortunately pass. All of the students are called "Scholar ng Bayan". To study in a university whose mentors are academically excellent and competitive with low tuition fee finishing a degree is not problem.

list bulletAbout Mindanao State University: MSU - (Marawi City) or the main campus is a nature inspired university. With it's cold weather and simple living you will really be motivated to study and learn. I cannot also deny that this place is full of mysteries.Professors in the university are great, brilliant, excellent, and terrifying, they are not after of money but after of commitment and discipline from a student-a warrior!
The facilities of the university is neither bad nor good. Only limited and few. The university is still working it out now.
