Also, as a government-funded universities, for a Biology course, the tuition their is incredibly low, even to those who pay more because they are in the highest bracket.

Taga-West students never settle for less, they strive harder and better in attempts of living up to it's core values: Service, Harmony, Excellence. As a university, it is a student-friendly place, nurturing the academic, social, emotional and physical capacity of a student.

The faculties are very knowledgeable of their fields, and they readily assist the students, both Taga-West and outsiders alike.

The facilities are up to date. They catch up to the trend of the modern society to cater the needs of the student's learning.

◈ Studied AB in Political Science
◈ At WVSU Main
◈ Graduated 2010

list bulletAbout WVSU Main: West Visayas State University is a government-run institution. If you're used to exclusive school atmosphere, you're in for a bit of a culture change. Just like most state colleges/universities, we do not enjoy first class facilities. We share the "Iskolar ng Bayan" label with those who go to other public universities such as the University of the Philippines. It's more of a privilege than something to be embarrassed of actually. After all, not everyone gets to be called "iskolar". Passing WVSU college entrance test could be a pooper but it will all be worth it once you get in.

You've gotta love WVSU professors. A WVSU generic professor is smart, eloquent, open-minded, talented and endowed with an intelligent sense of humor. They will practically make your learning experience an unforgettable one. So unforgettable that not having "super nice" facilities will matter less.

list bulletMy current job: I work as Local Government Operations Officer for the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I landed on my first job a month after graduation, but it took me a year to finally settle at my current employment.

list bulletAbout WVSU Main: Studying in WVSU College of Nursing is such a privilege since entering in that institution is not an easy task. I'm grateful that I was able to pass and grabbed the opportunity to study Nursing in a much cheaper price since it's a government school.

◈ Studied BS in Nursing
◈ At WVSU Main
◈ Graduated 2010

list bulletAbout WVSU Main: It is not grand like other universities but it also has necessary facilities like others- functioning and updated computer rooms, good libraries, skills laboratories, a cultural center, a football field, clean cafeterias, reliable school clinic.

Teachers and Professors there ranges from those who have been your parents' mentors as well to new ones who are also graduates of the university from 2 or 3 years ago. There are those who are still very traditional, follows conventional and outdated ways of teaching but also there are those who are modern and is aware that the world has been dynamic and is going digital.

Being a public one, the atmosphere there, I believe, is very comfortable. Simple and unsophisticated it is. It is normal for you to see students walking with there just simple slippers with fake brands, or with old fashioned clothes, or on almost unusable school shoes. So if you are living on a cultured, high end life and who loves to show off, you might raise an eyebrow and the school may be kind of boring to you.

list bulletMy current job: I'm working as a staff nurse in a private hospital.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Since nursing is one of the most demanding profession, giving a great deal of time for the board examination and the release of it's result, I was able to have an opportunity to somehow practice it 7 months after I graduate.
