V. A.
◈ Studied Associate in Midwifery
◈ At CUPasay
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: Circumstances prevented me from being a prince. First, I defied my father's wish to be a sea man, second, we're not in a position where I should be studying college for a fee. (Thank you CAP for bullshitting our family's future.)

list bulletAbout CUPasay: The ambiance was horrible. It was like a hot oven made for future less degenerates that included me. The main building, where it's situated behind the City Hall and LITERALLY BESIDE the Pasay City Jail, was nothing short of a building destined to be condemned. The ventilation was horrible! Every time students would pay their fees, the queue extended from the ground floor up to the fourth floor extending to the other side of the stairs making it's way down to the second floor. It's like queuing for a PBB audition. It was both ridiculously ineffective and effective in the sense that they get the job right by doing the worst possible way to tackle the situation.

As for the College of Nursing and Midwifery, where I spent most of my two years learning pretty much what I need to learn, it was situated in the fourth floor of the City's general hospital. The ambiance is quite good, you get to feel that you're a student learning health and all but all that changes when you enter the building. Depression sinks in the moment you find yourself in a low ceiling floor, that was originally designed to be a single room unit. That is, there's a nurse station, where students hang out, and some 8-10 rooms that will house your sub par learning. The rooms are cramped, poorly ventilated, and on a hot day, comparable to a sweat shop. If there's anything that this school taught me in life, it's that Survival instincts kick in every time you're presented a worst case scenario.

Tip for the newly graduate :


The Professors from City University Pasay.

Ah yes, the dedicated (NOT) professors from PLP. If there's a high horse that people mount, it is those so called 'professors' from PLP that rode them majestically. The professors are the epitome of what not to do when a teacher. There are professors who found their wives in the character of theirs students (from what I recall, 4 hacks who taught me nothing had wives who were once their students). Apparently, this was the trend. If ever you've heard the term Kwarto o Kwatro, I'd suggest you opt for the Kwatro part since you'll be ending up with these suckers who only know how to extort their students.

Fun fact: Midterm exams are a bitch right? NOT if you buy this 'educational-field-trip' to STAR CITY! Yes! The place where magic happens! Ever wondered why college students go in huge numbers in that Place? Well, as an incentive for buying a ticket, and watching the Ballet production, you get to enjoy the arts shown by the Philippine Ballet Group. Now isn't that a bargain? You get to have an automatic pass in your midterms and you get to ride the Zyklon Loop (which was de-commissioned for being old and rusty and death linked). How's that for education!

As for the instructors situated in the College of Nursing and Midwifery, not much could be said. The bottom of the rut. You get to learn something IF you really wanted to learn. The instructors just don't care about you. The only thing they care about is getting their miserable paychecks every month and finding means to milk your sorry ass to poverty. No real learning, just plain old bullshit. It makes you wonder, how does CHED allow this kind of things to happen? It's easy. It benefits the student and the professors and as long as nobody tells someone, it will be the same shit again and again.

The perfect comparison would be to relate this sorry excuse of a school to Greendale Community College. That's pretty much how it is.

list bulletMy current job: I'm an ICU Nurse in a hospital in Region 2.
I studied Nursing after finishing my Midwifery degree.
Together with our team, we provide intensive care services to people in need. What we do is what you see on tv. Only much more.

◈ Studied Bachelor of Elementary Education
◈ At CUPasay
◈ Graduated 2006

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I have three kids and my household budget was really tight. Tuition fee there was my lifetime catch to get a degree. A blessing indeed!

list bulletAbout CUPasay: For those who has a comfortable financial status won't ever consider my school. It was crowded, offices were unfriendly. Typically, some professors taught excellently while others would just waste our time. However, I didn't mind. I was 29 years old already and I knew that was my best chance to finish college. To me the course program and curriculum was there to guide me in enriching my learning whenever I felt I lacked something.

list bulletMy current job: It was a long journey to get here in Canada. My entry job constantly was a nanny. Now a supervisor level in a daycare while working on to continue my teaching career in public elementary school here.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Graduated on April 2006 -> work in a private school June 2006 -> took licensure exam and pass August 2006 -> applied in public school Dec2006 -> Work as temporary public school teacher Jan-Feb 2007 -> became permanent in March 2007.
