|Kudos for Cavite
State for its Century|
|Monday, 9 Oct.
|One hundred years of producing
quality graduates to contribute to the working force in
CALABARZON is indeed a remarkable achievement for the
Cavite State University. Kudos Cavite State University!
Thus, we have to look at our centennial celebration
not only as a way of recognizing the achievements of the
thousand of graduates our institution has produced, but
we also have to focus on other major accomplishments of
CvSU which are worthy of commendation. Perhaps, the most
outstanding was the conversion of DSAC into Cavite State
University on 22 January 1998 by virtue of Republic Act
No. 8486. Thanks for the great men and women behind the
As the former Don Severino Agricultural College
metamorphosed into a green and clean multi-campus
university with branches in the four towns of Cavite
namely: Carmona, Imus, Naic and Rosario, and in two
cities, Cavite and Trece Martirez, its surroundings have
improved alot. Additional buildings were constructed. To
name a few are the five-storey University Library, the
gymnasium, Nursing and Information Technology buildings,
dormitories and even comfort rooms. Old
buildings,classrooms, laboratory rooms, and offices were
renovated; ceiling fans and air-con units were installed
and more instructional equipment were acquired. All
these improvements make the teaching-learning and
working environment more enjoying and relaxing. Another
remarkable accomplishment of the University is its
additional course offerings, and strong faculty. CvSU
now offers 68 curricular programs in all campuses and
78.66 percent of its faculty has MS/MS units and PhD/PhD
units, who can deliver their goods to the fullest to
provide quality education in their different field of
specialization and help produce morally upright and
globally competitive individuals. Moreover, CvSU has
gained regional and national recognition through its
Research and Extension Services. It established linkages
with government and non-government agencies to finance
and support research and extension projects. Among these
are DOST, DTI, DAR/DA and DOE. CvSU also gained
recognition for having been designated as the Center of
Development in Agriculture and Agricultural Engineering
and its membership to the National Coffee Research
Development Board. Again, Kudos to CvSU! May the
University continue to face the challenges that lie
ahead and may its continuing commitment and dedication
be your potent tools to bring about change and more
