Being one of those numbers of students who studies at one of the known universities is a great experience. Being a graduate or not but a part of it is one of the things any of us cannot forget. But what if an issue arises from the said university, would you be among the one who will share your own sentiments? Would you be like the one below who shares what they feel?
As a former student of Bulacan State University, I am really proud to say that, “Galing ako ng BulSU.” I may not be a graduate but at least I know and I have experienced what BSU has to offer other than the prestigious and well-known universities in our country.
I am not a good student but I know I can release my sentiments too.
I came late in my classes, some of my professors don’t like me, most of my classmates are irritated at me, students at the hall starts to gossip when I pass by. Still, I choose to enroll every year while I still can.
Why? Because I know that BSU will guide me to discover my capabilities as an individual and will help me to prepare for my future. I believed in BSU because I trust the people behind this great institution.
Why am I saying this? Recently, I received news from my brother who is currently studying Industrial Engineering at BSU. He told me that nine executives of the university were dismissed from their respective services due to the tragic field trip accident last year. A lot of engineering students are affected and some friends of mine (currently studying and graduates) are releasing their own sentiments on Facebook. I can’t help but notice them using #ParakaySirNick at #ParakayPresdeJesus hashtags.
They even removed the retirement benefits of Ex-President Mariano de Jesus, the man who engaged his life in developing our beloved university for 40 years with all his heart and soul.
(Excuse me, but I’m totally pissed off! I will kinda overreact from this… Pres. Mariano honestly is old, how can he support himself and his family if he’s not going to get his retirement benefits that he worked hard for so long?! Anong klaseng pag-iisip yan?)
And for Sir Nicanor Dela Rama, dean of the College of Engineering… A lot of students look up to him as a role model, motivator and guide in this very difficult field. How can you not be SO disappointed when you know someone that has a potential of being a good president of the university was dismissed from service?
Please hear our appeal, notice us and believe in us.
Why? Because of all the people, the students are the ones who saw how great they are in terms of running the university and in terms of being a good individual themselves.
The above lines came from one of a not so good student at the year of 2010. What do you think of this sentiment? Does this one need a second look? Please share us your own thought.(Images Source: http://toptrends.tv/)
