President's Corner

SUC President IV

Welcome back, BUeńos!

Tuesday January 19,2021

I hope the long vacation gave you the much needed time to rest, recharge, and rekindle your passion to learn as we start another semester amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the many challenges brought about by this virulent virus, we have proven time and again that we can weather whatever comes our way if we stay true to our commitment to provide quality education that is relevant and responsive to the needs of the times.

Last semester, we bravely went through so many “firsts” in our decision to migrate to the online world and adopt blended learning as our modality. As we welcome the second semester of this school year, it is my hope that we keep an open mind as we navigate the steep learning curve of remote learning. May the past semester remind us that if there is one thing we can learn from this crisis; it is this: We need to embrace change with a positive attitude.

To our students, I assure you that providing a safe and engaging learning environment remains our utmost priority.

To our faculty and staff, know that your Bicol University family will always have your best interests at heart. Thank you for embodying the core values of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service as you perform your duties in the midst of this global pandemic.

BUeńos, together, let us make this second semester fruitful and exciting.


Best regards,

President Arnulfo Mascarińas
