Eastern Visayas State University President Dr. Dennis C. de Paz meets up with SSG Officers from different EVSU campuses last November 29, 2021 at EVSU- Main Campus Auditorium.

This has been a historic rendezvous since the presence of the student leaders is the manifestation of the effervescent services of the SSG Officers to fellow students despite the challenges that pandemic brings. Similarly, Dr. de Paz pointed out that the students are the lifeblood of the university. The goal of the activity is for the president to personally adjoins the new breed of leaders, and he wants to ensure that his vision is cascaded to the leaders from different campuses in every activity that they facilitate on. These student leaders play an indispensable role in disseminating information and updates with regard to academic affairs and services, considering that students pertinently rely on systematic access to virtual announcements of the university. These sets of officers bring with them responsibility to embody and to serve their fellow Evsunistas in these trying times.

Meanwhile, the activity is orchestrated by leaders from Carigara campus, Ormoc campus, Dulag campus, Tanauan campus, Burauen Campus, and EVSU- Main campus. Desiring to know more as to who Dr. de Paz is, leaders prepared fast talks and germane questions that could elicit immense impact to the university and its administration.

Asked anent the possible opening of classes across campuses by January, Dr. de Paz is affirmative that the conduct of the limited in-person classes will eventuate making an allowance for that they will comply with the protocols set forth by Commission on Higher Education. It is to be recollected that CHED releases a memorandum that gives mandate to the universities to retrofit classrooms that will make the learning environment more conducive to learning with lesser menace against the proliferation of Covid-19.

“For the information of dear students, the top management is planning that once the university will open, we will first give priority to students who have laboratory subjects, particularly, this will be for 3rd and 4th year students– that’s the priority at the moment. If the CHED will allow us to have more, we will do so. Because the classrooms are already prepared for this limited face-to-face classes. We already prepared plan for this limited face-to-face (classes). We’re planning to divide the classes into four; In that way, having thousands of students divided by four, so at least we will limit the students in the campus; Flexible learning modality will still be implemented,” Dr. de Paz ascertained.

Spotlights, intermission numbers, chats, and good ambience demarcated the event. Dr. de Paz answered the questions wholeheartedly and he moored his responses on the vision that he wants to see for the beloved university.

“EVSU is really working; We are in the right direction, that we’re moving forward for the better EVSU because EVSU is always there in the region as one of the best universities; With that, I am here to give my commitment as a president, I am committed to give the best education to all of you, Dr. de Paz promised.
