By admin - Posted on 05 February 2014

     The 28th year of BSU as a University was commemorated through a solemn Eucharistic Celebration on January 24 at the University Gym. Rev. Fr. Rolly Buyagan, the parish priest of Tomay in his homily likened BSU to a greenhouse that helps young people bloom and shine.

     The mass was attended by University students, faculty, and staff led by President Ben D. Ladilad. The vice-presidents, deans, and directors of the different offices led the readings and prayers imploring the Almighty to guide and bless the University in its pursuit of its vision to be a premier state university in Southeast Asia. 

     Specifically, the prayers are: for the College of Agriculture to be able to support the country’s goal for a steadier food supply; for the College of Home Economics and Technology to be an instrument towards better and healthier world; for the College of Arts and Sciences to give importance to God’s creation while not forgetting science and technological advancement; for the College of Engineering and Applied Technology to enhance the work of others through the latest agricultural engineering technology; for the College of Forestry to help man value the forest resources that provide safe and clean water; for the College of Veterinary Medicine to make sure that poultry, livestock, and other sources of meat are safe for human consumption; for the College of Nursing to come up with nurses who will be responsive to health care needs of the world; for the College of Teacher Education to strive to catapult students to greater heights; for the Graduate School to save the world from the attractions of consumerism, bad politics, and the ravages of an abusive society; and for the school administrators to be guided by the true tenets of service.

     Adding credence to the celebration were the songs assiduously selected by the choir led by its leader, Prof. Greg Taag from the CAS-Department of Social Sciences.

     After the mass, the Supreme Student Government (SSG) led members and fellow students in celebrating merrily the Charter anniversary.
