Students have their own criteria in choosing a College. The distinct one would be the school brand and others are keen into looking at its overall performance, its curriculum; and the most important: the quality of its education.
This year many freshly baked graduates from different high schools had chosen FEU Diliman (FEU-FERN College) as their new oven of home. And as to why they did so, here are some of their insights:
- The Green School
“I choose FEU Diliman because I fell in love with the surroundings. Sobrang peaceful niya. Madali ka makakapag-concentrate dahil sa environment niyang very conducive to learning.” Narrated by Ms. Jean Danniele S. Salindong, First Year, BS Accountancy student.
In the heart of the metro, one would not expect that FEU Diliman is a school surrounded by trees. The College is situated on a ten-hectare land that features the green outdoors that would captivate anyone looking for a fresh oasis in the smog of the metropolis.
FEU Diliman is far from the vices and safe from unrecognized organizations, fraternities and sororities making the learning process seep into the student.
- The Curriculum
“Kaya din po nagustuhan ko to [FEU Diliman] kasi tri-sem po. Three years lang graduate ka na.” Said by Ms. Colleen Castillo, First Year, BSBA Major in Financial Management student.
FEU Diliman is one of the few Colleges offering trimestral college system in the country. Students may graduate in just a span of three years for their bachelor’s degree. This enables graduates to pursue their endeavors earlier.
FEU Diliman, being part of the FEU group of schools, is committed to giving high-quality education. Its curriculum aims to produce competent and ethical graduates focusing on business, accountancy and information technology.
“In terms of choosing a school, we first have certain criteria. The first one is the facilities and quality education. I choose FEU Diliman because it goes beyond my expectations.” Said by Ms. Mary Grace M. Prayco, First Year, BS Accountancy student.
The College is also the home of the renowned world class artificial football pitch that houses the UAAP football competition and a basketball gym with hardwood floors akin to what FIBA World Cup courts in Spain uses. And, with its newly renovated classrooms, the College gives the students comfort during their learning process.
- The School Experience
“[My transition from high school to college], It was very hard. At first nakakatakot pumasok. Pero nung welcoming week sobrang saya. Sobrang welcome na welcome kaming froshies dito. Sobrang alaga po nila.” Narrated by Ms. Aileen B. Lagante, First Year, BS Accountancy student.
The transition from high school to college of freshmen is not a small feat. The adjustment period of the students will determine whether their college life will be fun or the contrary. This is where the community of the institution plays its part.
“At first po, medyo kinakabahan pa po ako pumasok. Kasi po I came from the province and wala pa po akong kilala kaya medyo hesitant pa po ako. Pero nung pagdating ko po [sa Manila] sabi nila may welcoming week daw po. Nakatulong po yung welcoming week. Naging close po ako sa blockmates ko and nung start na ng actual classes, wala na pong awkwardness.” Said by Silverie Anne B. Nacis, First Year, BS Accountancy student.
The welcoming week or better known as the TAMS Welcoming Week is project of the Student Development of FEU Diliman for the college freshmen. It helps new students and transferees to adjust in the College and be familiar with various student organizations.
FEU Diliman is a place where student will find the true meaning of a second home. The FEU core values – Fortitude, Excellence and Uprightness lies within the heart of the College’s community. Choosing an suitable educational partner is the first step in pursuing their dreams and goals in life.
