It has campus is in the middle of downtown and near to Jones Avenue, a main street, where all jeeps ply all the routes in Cebu City. The students came from the middle to upper middle class of the economic status and behaved well inside the campus. The classrooms were air-con and this created a cool environment that made the absorption of lessons easier. There was an air- con speech and English class laboratory for the development of the correct diction and pronunciation of English words. The relationship between the teachers and students were cordial. The teachers were pleasant and courteous. I found the atmosphere pleasing and I felt safe inside.

◈ Graduated 2002

list bulletAbout University of San Carlos:
Atmosphere and facilities:
Conducive to learning despite of being on the central part of the city. Well equipped facilities I can't complain.

Professors:
We got the best professors. They indeed inculcated to us the right seeds for us to be ready in the competitive world. Very professional and much approachable. They don't spoonfeed but they guide you.

list bulletMy current job:

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took me 3 months before I landed on my first job. Its difficult at first since you don't have the experience yet however after I jumped to my next employers it's much easier since you carried with you vast experiences that makes you the best qualified applicant. Most of the time I get ample job offers even if I am already working.

◈ Studied AB in English with Applied Linguistics
◈ At University of San Carlos
◈ Graduated 1997

list bulletWhy did I choose this school:
For starters, it is one of the best universities in Cebu. Secondly, all of my aunts and uncles, siblings of my mom, graduated here, so it was expected for me to study there and be a graduate of USC too.

list bulletAbout University of San Carlos:
I have always liked my professors, especially those who share their love for literature and the English language. I was not initially keen on teaching, but towards my last years in college, there was one activity that 'woke me up', so to speak, and opened my eyes...

We taught mothers and old women in a certain barangay in Cebu City. These were mothers who didn't finish studies and some even attended only a few years of elementary. It was a different kind of 'immersion' as we tried to teach them the basics, how to read, correct sounds of English, and being able to be 'there' for their children, who wish to study with them. It was exhilarating to know that you have made a difference in their lives, that their appreciation of what you did was met with genuine smiles and ever present banana cue they prepared for you when you get there.

That was my 'moment' and I knew then I was going to teach, to train...

list bulletMy current job:
I am technically holding the DARP Supervisor's position. DARP stands for Documentation, Analysis, Reporting & Planning. This department takes care of all documentation and as the dept says, reporting, analysis, and planning. I work for a BPO company which means all data and recording has to be submitted to the right people: QA, Managers, etc...

At the same time, since I initially joined the company as Language Trainer, I take care of special training given to agents, focusing on Speech and Communication. As a pioneering employee, I created the training plan for newly hired employees. I don't technically belong to the Training Dept, but from time to time, if there are agents who are in need of special 'training', they're given to me to be trained.

I also do specialized training, upon request, for other English schools. An example was a request to do Speech and Pronunciation Training for 3 weeks to the teachers of an English Academy (for Korean students).

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Actually, it didn't take long. After I graduated, I already knew I wanted to teach, so I sent my resumes to schools and landed an English teaching job in one of the best schools in Cebu.

◈ Graduated 1984

list bulletWhy did I choose this school:
This school is owned, managed, found, operated by the SVD priest, the same as that of Divine Word University in Tacloban city, Tagbiliran, Bohol, Legazpi, and in La Union. The standard of education was high due to the influence of the German priests. The teachers are all the “cream of the crop” in this region. The facilities were considered complete and the best in this city. It was like a sure way to being employed.

Grace C. Sulit
◈ Studied BS in Nutrition and Dietetics
◈ At University of San Carlos
◈ Graduated 1996

list bulletAbout University of San Carlos:
It is run by a religious organization and a seat for academic excellence. Teachers are very good and have vast experience. Since not too many take this course, we are a family in the department. As far as facilities are concerned, I think we are on the average simply due to the fact that we are a small group. But I believe the school had improvements recently as our department has become more recognizable.

list bulletMy current job:
I just resigned from my recent job as a canteen supervisor. Now I wanted to have a career which is more in line with the course I took. But since I am already 37 years old, my knowledge in Diet Therapy is now out-to-date. I am in fact looking into possibilities for refresher courses, so I will be brought up to speed.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I took the licensure exam in 1996 but I failed due to personal issues I had to sort out while reviewing for the test. After a year, I had a retake and passed this time. It took me a month after I found a job as a nutritionist for a concessionaire in Race Food Co., Inc., in DBP, and International School in Kalayaan, Makati.
