With a 93.75 percent passing rate, the University of the Philippines Visayas Tacloban College (UPVTC) continued its strong performance in the recently-concluded Certified Public Accountant (CPA) licensure examination.
Thirty graduates of the College’s BS Accountancy program passed the highly-competitive examinations held earlier in October, based on the results released by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
After years of its unpleasant state, the University of the Philippines Visayas Little Theater (LT) will finally be renovated. A groundbreaking for its renovation was held on October 26, 2017 at the UPV Iloilo City campus.
Honored Speaker of the event was Hon. Arthur Defensor, Jr., representative of the 3rd District of Iloilo and UP Visayas alumnus who was the key in facilitating the approval of the funds for the renovation of this edifice. The proposal for the renovations was as well supported by Sen. Loren Legarda and former Antique Gov. Salvacion Perez. The LT is very close to the heart of the alumni, especially those who studied in the Iloilo City campus.
The Institute of Fisheries Policy and Development (IFPDS), College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS), UP Visayas (UPV) conducted a training-workshop on fisheries science management at the Audio Visual Room, Graduate and Continuing Education Building (GCEB), UPV Iloilo City campus on September 11-12, 2017.
The two-day training was part of a collaboration between UPV and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), hence it was attended by participants from both parties. Participants from UPV included faculty members from CFOS and College of Arts and Sciences.
The UPV Peer Facilitators of different dorms as well as PFs from outside the dorm area are always ready to serve students.
Here’s one fact – students of the university are vulnerable to stress. Because of the existing academic load, extra-curricular activities, and organizational duties, students are exposed to stressful situations and anxieties.
The UPV Peer Facilitators or PFs (formerly UPV Junior Counselors) are trained students of the university that can help in coping with university life, especially to freshmen who are in need of guidance. Currently based at the UPV dormitories, the UPV PF extends help to anyone in the campus. Banwa PFs were also organized to assist those students not staying in the dormitories. The rehabilitation of the Peer Facilitators’ Office, located at the CUB basement, near the offices of guidance counselors is currently being done.
