◈ Studied BS in Tourism Management
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I chose this school because they have the best term system in Davao, and class schedules are flexible. The school also offers suitable facilities for my course.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: The school's ambiance is really fit for studying and relaxing at the same time. It has open areas like quadrangles, mini forest and gymnasiums where students can study or just socialize.

Teachers are knowledgeable and well trained. They know what they are talking about and have an on hand experience of the subjects that they are teaching.

Despite the fact that not all classrooms are air conditioned, they are still well-equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, while the university library contains highly educational books and other reference materials that would really help students in boosting their knowledge.

list bulletMy current job: A few weeks after graduation, I was already being offered a job by one of the largest companies in Mindanao to promote tourism in China. Which is why they also offered me a two year scholarship program to study Mandarin in Xiamen. After the upcoming fall semester, I will go back to the Philippines and start being fully on board.

◈ Studied BS in Accounting Technology
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2011

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I came from the rural area. Well, in the mountainous area to be specific as I only come from a very humble, hardworking family. So when I arrived in the big urbanized area (davao city), UM was the most suitable university for me because the tuition fees were manageable, while the quality of education was also good. It was important to me that I enroll in a school where my family won’t have to sell our land just so I can obtain a college education. UM was really for people like me in that aspect. And even so, it was the place where many board top-notchers have come from so just imagining that I could study there was already exciting for me. I really looked forward to be surrounded by intelligent students thinking that I’d be influenced by them.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: A lot of the professors became my friends, or almost everyone else’s friends. They always gave a youthful, carefree feeling which helped us endure through the difficult times. However, even if they were so amiable and outgoing, they never allowed that “ friendship” to come between studies and grades. So even if you can pull off jokes with the schools’ professors, you can’t expect them to let you “pass” that easily. For that, I really had great respect for them.

School’s facilities were also okay. Classrooms were sufficient with just the right number of students per class. In terms of cleanliness, sanitation and order I can say the school managed to keep the place conducive for learning even if it was a big campus to maintain. I especially admire the school’s concern towards nature. I myself am a nature lover so it was good to see that through the school’s initiative, students were trained to be disciplined and aware of their actions towards their environment.

list bulletMy current job: Currently I am an administrative assistant in a private company. It’s not a very big and profitable one, but there’s still a lot of things to do for business.
Usually I handle the transactions concerning money coming in and out of the company, some accounting - like monitoring cash flows and minor auditing, scheduling appointments for my boss, attending to clients and visitors and basically almost everything. It’s both amazing and confusing how I’ve come this far knowing that I could handle all these.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: While I was still in college, I was already working. I was a working student. From then on, I always had a job and from that moment on, I never became unemployed because I’d just be asked to move from one department, or office to another. I guess I was really lucky.

◈ Studied BSBA in Financial Management
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I wanted to study at Ateneo but we were having financial issues that day, it was a practical decision to study at UM. Frankly saying the education wasn’t that bad. And in addition University of Mindanao is one of most popular and the oldest schools here in Davao city.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: I was shocked the first time I entered that school because it was enormous. What I cannot forget was that I had to walk from the entrance gate to our classroom for 10 mins. The facilities weren’t that presentable since the establishment was old already. And just like the school most of our professors were old. The only air-conditioned area there was the faculty and the computer lab.

list bulletMy current job: I’m working as Marketing assistant for globe communications today. I organize market research, arrange promotional events, assist the manager in writing reports and analyzing data. I also help the manager on online traffic with web-related campaigns and I Communicate with clients.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I thought that it was going to take long but thank god after graduating I easily got to work as sales representative. I was referred by a friend who also worked at that company.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I wanted to study at another university but I decided to choose UM because of my mother, she had already applied for my scholarship at UM with the support of Prudential life.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: UM Matina as a whole was an average school to be with. Back then, one thing I hated the most, was that all students had to walk very far from our entrance (main gate to our building. In terms of facilities we had air-conditioned Audio Visual Rooms, Computer lab (good for 1 or 2 hours login time), a lot of Science Labs, and our Library was large enough to accommodate most of the students.

list bulletMy current job: I am now a Technical Support Specialist (tier 2) at Convergys Davao. Having a great educational background in English helped me a lot with this kind of work.

◈ Studied BSEd in Social Studies
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 1995

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It is a well-known school of high academic standard and also, the tuition fees are negotiable. Besides it's a walking distance from our home.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: When I first look at the place, it was good but not that impressive, anyway you can't judge a book by it's cover... They have facilities for certain activities, very accommodating staff - only for those important cases; like payments, registrations, and etc. A friendly environment I may say since I didn't found anything to offend me or seeing myself in an embarrassing situation.

The professors were sometimes freaky - I mean trying to get us do or make some weird stuff or maybe it is only new to me. But, to summarize, the instructors were really nice and good in teaching.

list bulletMy current job: I'm a Social Studies teacher.
I'm teaching high school students about geographies and history in a prestigious private school.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After passing the board and getting a licence. I became a trainee before I become stable, so, maybe 8 months.

The campus atmosphere is perfectly conducive for learning. The classrooms are suited, areas for studying are provided, the ramps leading to each building are well made and the breeze from the trees around made the place cool enough to enjoy.

◈ Studied BS in Nursing
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: The school tuition fees are not expensive and this school is considered to be a school of good academic standard, although nursing is not one of it's fortes, since it has no hospital of it's won. Nevertheless, I had no rich parents and I wanted to finish a course in order to get employed.

list bulletAbout University of Mindanao: UM had a good campus atmosphere. It is accessible to all public vehicles, the university being in the center of downtown area. Its facilities include a clinic, hall, court or gym, and a wide area for resting and chatting during recess or breaks. The canteen offers food and beverage at very low prices that can fit a student’s budget. Some of the rooms are air-conditioned but a large number of the classrooms are only well-ventilated by windows and ceiling fans.

The teachers were all good in their profession and some hold high positions in the Philippine government and private enterprises. Most of the teachers in nursing were in the public service and government employed while a few of them were practicing nurses and doctors in private hospitals and clinics.

list bulletMy current job: I am now working as a Store Supervisor in a mall.
I did not take the board for nursing because I had no money yet. There is not much opportunity for me in nursing because I am not yet licensed. But I am still earning a good income sufficient for my daily needs for the meantime.
