Written by Marico Betonio
Catbalogan City – Led by the Guidance Office, SSU held its first ever Re-Orientation Forums for continuing students last June.
In addition to the annual orientation for freshmen, shifters and transferees, the Re-Orientation Forums were conducted for continuing 2nd to 5th year students by college. The forum re-oriented the students of the University’s mission and vision, college goals and objectives, academic rules and regulations, scholarships/grants and aid, student conduct and discipline, research and extension thrust and programs, and other student services such as library, medical, dental, and guidance.
“Na-notice kasi namon na maski 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th year students, diri la gihap hira maaram han mga regulations han SSU (We have noticed that the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th year students still do not know the regulations of SSU),” said the director of Guidance Services, Prof. Mae V. Cañal, RGC, on organizing the re-orientations.
She also added that it aimed to “acquaint the students of the new administration, for them to know the new president, the new vice-presidents, and other officials,” and to “deepen their understanding of the SSU mission, vision, the goals and objectives of the colleges.”
The students were not only able to re-familiarize the university rules and regulations, but were also able to voice out concerns. “Nagkakamayda liwat hin avenue an mga students through the open forum (The students had an avenue through the open forum),” Prof. Cañal stated.
The event had solicited different feedback from students who had first-hand experience of serious issues in the school, feedback common among students. Some of these included Internet fee and scholarships.
Since it was done by college, the Re-Orientation Forum was conducted on different dates and venues, as follows: College of Education, June 14, Maceda Gymnasium; College of Nursing and Health Sciences, June 15, AVC; College of Engineering, June 16, AVC; College of Industrial Technology, June 21, Maceda Gym; and College of Arts and Sciences, June 22, Maceda Gym.
